Public School to Participate in NYFW: Men’s

Public School will be participating in New York Fashion Week: Men’s — but exactly what the brand is planning to do is being kept under wraps.
On Friday, the New York-based men’s and women’s label founded by Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne sent out an invite to an event Wednesday night in TriBeCa. The invitation, which also had the branding for Moët & Chandon, read: “A piece of ground that belonged to them, on which they could plant their feet, permanency.” The designers had created special bottles for the spirits brand that were unveiled during New York Fashion Week last September.
A spokesman for the company declined to provide further details on Wednesday’s event.
In December, the designers said they would be taking a break from showing their collection during NYFW in February as “the company is in the midst of stepping away from the traditional industry format and launching a new direct-to-consumer concept.” The company said details would be shared in advance of the launch later this year and that the brand would be “refining” its product assortment, “delivery cadence,” and restructuring it organization.
According to retailers who had carried the line, the final Public School wholesale collection was shipped for spring.

Kaiser Permanente Hosts Community Workday at Koko Head Elementary School

HONOLULU —  School faculty and volunteers from Kaiser Permanente Hawaii gathered for a community workday at Koko Head Elementary School today to help beautify the campus. This marks Kaiser Permanente’s third community workday of 2018, part of an ongoing initiative to support healthy learning environments for keiki by restoring and beautifying school campuses.

Volunteers completed general maintenance in the school parking lot, including restriping parking stall lines. Kaiser Permanente provided monetary support for the project and lunch for volunteers.

“We’re grateful to our employees and school volunteers for joining us today to help beautify Koko Head Elementary,” said David Underriner, president of Kaiser Permanente Hawaii. “Our commitment to community service includes volunteering our time and efforts toward creating a healthier and more productive learning environment for keiki.”

Kaiser Permanente Hawaii has partnered with Hawaii 3R’s, an organization founded by the late U.S. Senator Daniel Inouye, to identify and complete impactful projects at schools across the state. Hawaii 3R’s provided a grant for $ 3,000 for the beautification project.

“Our work today helps brighten and restore our parking lot for faculty and parent use,” said Koko Head Elementary School Principal Jeffrey Shitaoka. “Partnering with Kaiser Permanente and 3R’s helps amplify our own efforts to beautify our campus for the benefit of the community.”

 

About Hawaii 3R’s

Wedding Deejay Arrested for the Brutal 1992 Rape and Murder of School Teacher Christy Mirack

Pennsylvania police made an arrest in the death of school teacher Christy Mirack 25 years after her murder.

Raymond “DJ Freez” Rowe, 49, was arrested on Monday afternoon at his home in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, and was charged with criminal homicide.

Mirack was 25 years old and a sixth-grade teacher at Rohrerstown Elementary School. She was found dead in her home on December 21, 1992. Her death rocked her community and has remained a cold case for over two decades.

“The killer was at liberty for this brutal crime longer than Christy Mirack was on this earth alive. His apprehension was long overdue,” Lancaster District Attorney Craig Stedman told reporters at a press conference Monday.

Mirack was found dead in her home by the principal of her school who went to her home as he was concerned when she did not show up for work.

According to the District Attorney, the young teacher has been sexually assaulted, her clothes were pushed down from her waist, her shirt pushed up and it was clear a struggle had taken place.

Mirack was wearing her jacket and gloves and that, combined with scuff marks, led authorities to believe she had been dragged back into the home, Stedman said.

Mirack was strangled to death but she sustained a “brutal beating” to the point her “face was distorted,” he added.

At the time, authorities took a DNA sample from her body and the carpet underneath the body, which had fluids from the alleged attacker.

For years authorities did not find a match to that DNA. But, according to Stedman, that changed when the DNA sample was matched to a relative of Rowe who had uploaded their DNA to a database on genealogy website GEDmatch – the same site which was involved in the Golden State Killer’s arrest.

However, that alone was not enough for an arrest, so the deejay was put under surveillance. In late May, undercover investigators collected used chewing gum and a water bottle they claim Rowe used while working as a deejay at an event at a school, Steadman said at the press conference.

• Want to keep up with the latest crime coverage? Click here to get breaking crime news, ongoing trial coverage and details of intriguing unsolved cases in the True Crime Newsletter.

Police concluded the DNA found in the gum and bottle were a match to the DNA taken from the scene, he added.

Stedman also said Rowe “was not on our radar” as the alleged killer before his arrest.

Rowe works as a deejay predominately at weddings, school proms and has even worked at charity events raising money to help female victims of violence.

However, he also claims to have worked as a deejay for celebrities such as Paris Hilton and Brooke Hogan, as well as at events featuring Sting, The Eagles and Kenny Kravitz, according to his website.

Rowe is currently being held in Lancaster County Prison and is not eligible for bail.

This isn’t the first time an arrest in a cold case was made after DNA was submitted to a genealogy site. California police arrested former police officer Joseph James DeAngelo for crimes he committed as the notorious Golden State Killer in April.

A police source told PEOPLE at the time that DeAngelo was caught through “sophisticated” DNA analysis, but said he was not on the radar of police. At the press conference, police said DeAngelo was linked to DNA evidence six days before his arrest.

Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones said that authorities surveilled DeAngelo and recovered “discarded DNA” that allegedly confirmed the suspect’s connection to the killings.

Winnie Harlow: I was a confident child growing up, but that changed for a time when I was bullied at school

OHMYGOSSIP — Winnie Harlow thinks her bullies’ opinions are “irrelevant”. The 23-year-old model – who suffers from vitiligo, which causes the loss skin pigment – lost her confidence because of cruel taunting she experienced at school, but she eventually learned not to care about what other people think of her, FemaleFirst.co.uk mediates.

She said: “I was a confident child growing up, but that changed for a time when I was bullied at school. As an adult, I gained my confidence back by asking myself, ‘Why do I care what other people think?’ And now I don’t. If I were to come face-to-face with those bullies today, I wouldn’t say a word. Their thoughts are irrelevant.”

I hope you smile today, you’re loved 💛

A post shared by ♔Winnie Harlow♔ (@winnieharlow) on

Winnie believes the key to not getting upset by bullies is for a person to figure out their own reasons why they doubt themselves. She said: “If I was advising my best friend on bullies, first I would ask them, ‘Why are you doubting yourself?’ Once you get to the core reason [for self doubt], you can start to work on making it over those barriers that are holding you back.”

The former ‘America’s Next Top Model’ contestant thinks social media can be a great “tool” – but also “dangerous” as it gives everyone a platform.

She told Grazia magazine: “Social media is a powerful outlet for anything you want to voice. This can be both a positive and a dangerous thing, depending on whose hands it’s in.”

Winnie feels very “lucky” that she adores her job as a model because not everyone enjoys their work. She said: “My grandfather often told my mom, do what you love because you’ll be doing it for the rest of your life. I’m lucky that I really love what I do.”

Cheryl Giovannoni on how to help girls achieve their potential at school

Marie Claire speak exclusively to CEO of the Girls’ Day School Trust Cheryl Giovannoni on how to encourage the next generation of female leaders

Cheryl Giovannoni

Cheryl Giovannoni lives and breathes leadership. Before becoming CEO of the Girls’ Day School Trust (GDST), her career with global communications powerhouse WPP culminated with her role as CEO of Ogilvy & Mather (where she landed contracts with huge companies such as Pizza Hut and Pimm’s). Her previous roles have included European President of the global brand consulting firm, Lander Associates, as well as CEO of Coley Porter Bell, a consumer design and branding business.

Cheryl Giovannoni

On top of this, Giovannoni is also a keen proponent of mentoring, and offers her time and support for WACL (Women in Advertising and Communication London) and is a non-executive director of Fearless Futures, a charity that aims to encourage equality through its programmes for schools.

Now as the CEO of the GDST, Cheryl Giovannoni is responsible for the organisation that hopes to shape girls at 23 schools and two academies across England and Wales into strong and confident women. We spoke to Cheryl about the importance of STEM subjects, the effects of gender stereotyping and how to support girls in the age of Instagram.

When girls fulfil their potential at school, how does that affect their future prospects?

‘School is the launch-pad for the rest of your life. At the GDST, this means giving girls every possible opportunity to explore and grow their talents so they can step out into the world full of confidence and optimism for their future, as well as resilience to handle things when they don’t go according to plan. This means, always encouraging girls to be curious and resourceful, to be fearless and take risks. To try new things and get out of their comfort zone, in a place where they make friends for life and hopefully have fun.’

‘It is for us all to keep building girls up’

Nowadays, what is the biggest hurdle that girls face at school?

‘The most important thing we can do is to encourage a girl to have the confidence to find her own voice. Girls more than boys tend to hold themselves back and not speak up. In a girls-only environment, it is wonderfully inspiring to see girls take the lead in any role – they understand they can do anything they put their mind to and that there is nothing that they can’t achieve. It is for us all to keep building girls up – to encourage them to raise their hand, to speak out, that their voice matters.’

What is the biggest change you have seen in the challenges that girls face at school?

‘The exponential rise in social media has created a world that is so unlike the world most parents grew up in. Girls are bombarded every day with “perfect” images of life – ones that only include the best bits. It becomes very hard to maintain perspective of what life really is all about, with all its wonderful ups, downs and challenges. The pressure of that skewed perspective can be very challenging.

What can the wider world do to support girls at school? It’s for all of us out there to support girls as they start out on their chosen paths after their career. We’ve recently heard the pitiful excuses made for not having women in the boardroom. I see girls every single day full of vitality and determination and I know that this is the generation that will change the world. All leaders out there must change their mind-set and start to create opportunities for women – if they don’t, these leaders will certainly miss out.’

What are the main differences in the challenges that girl and boys face at school?

‘Boys and girls face a number of challenges at school. Even before they enrol in school, girls – and boys – are subject to gender stereotypes. They are spoken to and treated differently. It impacts on how we see ourselves, determines our future aspirations and how we value ourselves. It seems to me that boys too can be held back by gender stereotypes. If men are supposed to be strong and silent, and good at maths, where does this leave the boy who is passionate and creative?’

Cheryl Giovannoni

‘In all-girls schools, nothing holds a girl back’

Research has shown that girls thrive in single sex schools – why do you think this is?

‘In all-girls schools, nothing holds a girl back. They receive an education that puts them front and centre, boosts their confidence and empowers them as they step-out into the world. They are taught to aim high and meet obstacles with resilience. They thrive because all roles are open to them.

In mixed schools, boys can often dominate in the classroom and assumptions of “girls’ subjects” and “boys’ subjects” kick-in, limiting their potential. All-girls schools do not bubble-wrap girls and shield them from the “real world”. Quite the contrary. They exist to inspire and enable young women to thrive in, as well as challenge and change, a society that is far from equal. At all-girls schools, girls step out into the world seeing themselves as nothing less than leaders or potential leaders. I truly believe it will be these girls who smash the glass ceiling, for the benefit of everyone.’

How would you encourage more girls into STEM subjects and careers?

‘Again, it goes back to instilling confidence in girls, that they can pursue any career they wish. One thing that is really important is to provide positive role models – to remind girls of the amazing women who have achieved incredible things. If she can see it she can be it. Seeing is believing and they realise there is no stopping them.’

Ava DuVernay Turning Colin Kaepernick’s High School Experience Into TV Series

The NFL may have banned Colin Kaepernick for using his First Amendment right to peacefully protest against injustice, but the 30-year-old has clearly moved on. He is now teaming up with Emmy winner Ava DuVernay for a television series that will definitely be a must-see.

DuVernay has several projects in the works and one of them, according to Vanity Fair, is with the former NFL player, which will be a “TV comedy series with Colin Kaepernick that centers on his high-school life.” No word on when or where this will air, but it should definitely be a fascinating story.

Kaepernick’s father was Black and his mother was white, but he was given up for adoption. A white couple named  Rick and Teresa Kaepernick adopted him and he was raised in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin until he was 4. The family eventually moved to Turlock, California, which is where he attended high school. He was an overall athlete and became a sports star in Central California because of his accomplishments in football and basketball.

With Ava behind him, there could so some interesting stories tell and you can be guaranteed these two will definitely insert some needed social commentary.

Another note, Ava is also directing a Netflix series on The Central Park Five. They were 5 Black teenagers who were wrongfully accused of assaulting a white woman in New York City’s Central Park in 1989. Their lives were destroyed and Donald Trump famously took out a full page ad in The New York Times calling for their execution.

Akhtar Soomro/Reuters

SANTA FE, Texas—Sabika Sheikh came to the United States to learn about American culture as part of a State Department-funded scholarship program.

On Friday, Sheikh fell victim to a gruesome American tradition, massacred with nine others at school by a gun-wielding classmate.

This time it was at Santa Fe High School near Houston, Texas. Among the victims were two popular substitute teachers, Ann Perkins and Cynthia Tisdale, as well as 16-year-old Shana Fisher, whose mother said the alleged shooter “kept making advances” at her daughter, Los Angeles Times reported.

Heartbreak and Outrage: These Are the Victims of the Santa Fe High School Shooting in Texas

On Friday, a gunman killed ten people, mostly students, in a mass shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas. Among those killed were an exchange student from Pakistan and a substitute teacher.

The attack, which began around 7:30 a.m., comes just months after a mass shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida, killed 17 people — and, less than a year before that, a mass shooter at a concert in Las Vegas killed 58.

The suspect in the shooting has been identified as 17-year-old Dimitrios Pagourtzis, according to a news release from the Galveston County Sheriff. He is being held in the Galveston County Jail with no bond on capital murder charges.

In addition to the dead, ten people were injured, including a school police officer who confronted the gunman and helped prevent more deaths, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said.

Here is what we know about the slain, including their names, ages, photos and backgrounds, where available.

Sabika Sheikh, 17

Sabika Sheikh, a Pakistani exchange student, was confirmed dead by the Embassy of Pakistan in Washington, D.C.

The Pakistan Association of Greater Houston posted on Facebook that Sheikh was in Texas as part of the Youth Exchange & Study (YES) Programme. According to the post, she was due to come back home to Pakistan on Eid, a religious holiday that marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting.

Sheikh hailed from Karachi, a city of 18 million people in southern Pakistan, reports Al Jazeera. The outlet spoke to Sheikh’s father, Abdul Aziz, who said, “She was extraordinary, genius, and talented.”

Aziz added, “At such a young age she would say such huge things, that sometimes I couldn’t believe it. Even now I cannot believe that my daughter is gone.”

Cynthia Tisdale

Multiple family members confirmed on Facebook that Cynthia Tisdale, a substitute teacher, was killed.

According to her niece, Leia Olinde, Tisdale was substituting in the art class where the gunfire broke out.

Her brother-in-law, John Tisdale, wrote that Tisdale’s husband was stricken with an incurable lung disease that forced him to stop working, so Tisdale worked at Santa Fe High School and took a second job as a server to make ends meet.

“I am certain if we could talk to Cynthia, who is in heaven, the first thing she would say is she is concerned how is going to make it,” John Tisdale wrote.

Olinde wrote that Tisdale “was another mother to me. Someone I could talk to about anything and go to for everything.”

She added, “I have no words to describe the way I’m feeling now.”

Christopher Jake Stone

The sister of Chris Stone, 17, confirmed his death on Facebook.

“My baby brother was killed yesterday morning,” Mercedez Stone wrote. “Why my family, and why my beautiful baby brother.”

Mercedez described her brother to CNN as “adventurous” and “willing to try anything.” He liked played football and video games, and he enjoyed hiking, jet skiing and ziplining, she said.

According to the Houston Chronicle, one of his friends described Stone on Twitter as a “sweet and funny boy.”

Shana Fisher

Shana Fisher’s mom described her to the Chronicle as “shy and sweet,” saying, “She had a lot of love in her heart.”

A GoFundMe page launched in her memory says, “Her family is devastated” and “absolutely grief-stricken.”

This Tech School Is Offering a Year of Free Tuition — With an Unusual Twist


Over the last few years, we’ve seen a new trend arise that involves free tuition at various colleges across the United States.

It’s a trend we’ve been loving, as we’re excited to see higher education become more accessible to more people, especially with the ever-rising cost of college and the ever-growing trillion-dollar student loan epidemic.

But while one year of free tuition helps with recruitment and getting students started at these colleges, the new problem these schools are facing is retention. Plenty of students will take advantage of these free first year (or two) of tuition offers, but many end up not staying around to finish their degrees.

So, when columnist Matt Reed, who writes Inside Higher Ed’s “Confessions of a Community College Dean,” suggested making the second year of college free instead of the first, a technical college in Ohio was all ears.

BOGO Tuition at Ohio’s Marion Technical College

In an effort to encourage students to stick around and see their college education through, Marion Technical College is offering students a year of free tuition after they successfully complete one year as a full-time student.

That’s right — it’s buy one, get one on college tuition.

The school was trying to figure out a way to not only attract students, but to retain them beyond that enticing first free year.

By making the second year free and including the stipulation that students must first complete a self-paid year of full-time classes (meaning at least 30 hours of coursework over two semesters), the school hopes to not only bring in students who are excited to learn, but also give them incentive to stick around and excel.

The old model, which included a free first year, Reed noted in his original proposal, “imposes a significant cost increase just as students are entering the home stretch,” making it more likely for them to walk away.

The new model would make it an easier decision to see the degree through because students would have already invested their own money in their education during the first year.

This method, Reed writes, “answers the cultural desire for ‘skin in the game’ by having students work for it.”

Marion Tech’s president, Ryan McCall, had been searching for a way to make the free tuition promise he had been seeing pop up around the country work for his own students. McCall says he had been looking into ways to make summer coursework free for some students and also trying to figure out how to encourage them to continue.

After reading Reed’s article on Inside Higher Ed, McCall posed the question: “Do we stick with the summer idea or do we try to go further and expand it to the idea of providing students with a second year free after they’ve proven they want to do the work and be here?”

The school decided to go further and run with Reed’s idea.

How “Second Year Free” Tuition Will Work

BOGO tuition at Marion Tech, a system now known as the “Get to Next Scholars” Program, will provide incoming students with a second year of up to 35 credit hours for free.

To earn the year of free tuition, students must complete one year of full-time work — at least 30 hours of college-level courses — with at least a 2.5 grade point average.

Students will also receive a $ 100 stipend toward books each semester for both years, along with access to a dedicated adviser who will help them choose their education path.

In the end, the scholarship program’s goal is to increase Marion Tech’s completion rate.

Amy Adams, Marion Tech’s vice president of planning and advancement, says incoming students in the program will be supported every step of the way in an effort to ensure they feel financially and emotionally secure in their education.

“We want to make sure they have the right support group, so we’re looking at these students as a cohort coming in,” Adams says. “They’ll be assigned an academic adviser so they’re all on the right pathways and taking the appropriate classes, not falling behind, not feeling overwhelmed, and meeting as a group.”

Since the Get to Next Scholars program is still in the pilot stage, it will be a little while before the school sees exactly how the BOGO tuition is affecting retention and completion rates.

“Primarily,” McCall says, “this is about helping students get their degree in a shorter time frame and for less of the cost.”

To the little jerks on the school bus, I’m watching you

by

Whitney Barthel

posted in Parenting

I never thought I would be the type of mom that would want to bite someone — especially a child’s — head off. But, here I am ready to lose my mind on a bunch of 7-year-olds.

Why is there such a disconnect in child temperament these days? I feel like back in the day kids were kids, sometimes one kid was an angel and other times that same kid was a jerk. It kind of evened the universe out. We had a very well-rounded population of mediocre children. It was great.

And, these mediocre kids rode the bus and went to school and everyone was happy.

School bus behavior

Now, it seems, we have the kids that are usually angels and the kids that are unfailingly jerks.

Trust me, I am no stranger to good kids acting like jerks. I have four boys. And while deep down I know they are good kids (I mean, they cried when the grandma died in Trolls), I am not delusional in thinking they aren’t capable of acting like a bunch of a-holes.

However; here are my thoughts on how you can tell if a kid is a good kid, or not. Good kids generally reserve their bad behavior to take out on their siblings and parents.

After several recent incidents I am starting to suspect there might be a couple of not-good kids (I hate to say bad without 100 percent certainty) riding the same school bus as my boys. Just yesterday Frankie calmly told me that he “gave” his favorite toy car to a big kid on the bus because the big kid simply told Frankie he felt like keeping it for himself.

I will be the first person to note when my kids are being naughty and my boys are definitely not the most gracious sharers amongst themselves, but they would never take another child’s toy and refuse to return it saying it is theirs now…because that’s what they feel like.

And if they did? Well, they would surely feel the wrath of God.

While I am definitely not missing the 97 cent Matchbox car from Walmart, we have more than plenty, I am contemplating marching my buns on that bus and demanding it be returned — not because I want one more car to step on, but to show this little turkey that you don’t get what you want out of life by taking it from someone else.

If no one else will teach these kids to be normal, mediocre little runts and do normal kid things like talk too loudly and argue over whose dad is the strongest, I guess I will just have to.

So, to the “big kids” on the school bus who insist on teaching the “little kids” how to use their middle finger, or what swear words make adults most angry, and talk them into ponying up their toys, I will be watching you.

And to the parents and adults reading this, If you hear about a lady who was arrested for losing her mind on a bunch of 8-year-olds, it was probably me.

What to Wear to Law School Graduation

what to wear to law school graduationReader A is wondering what to wear to law school graduation, with hopes that she can wear it again for summer weddings — so let’s discuss! Readers, what did you wear to your law school graduation? Here’s her question:

I’m graduating from law school in three weeks and I’m wondering what to wear for graduation. I didn’t go to my college graduation so I’m feeling kinda clueless. Ideally it’d be something under $ 200 that I can wear again to work at my firm (preferably sleeves and close to knee length). I feel like a spring-y pattern is more appropriate for the occasion than my go-to black and white sheath. Any ideas? (Bonus if it’s something I could also wear to summer weddings for law school classmates)

We’ve talked a bit about dressing for law school, including what to wear to law school, as well as ideal law school orientation outfits — but not for graduation itself. The TL;DR advice here: don’t stress; whatever you wear will be fine. (You could always go with one of the light blue sheath dresses that are popular right now — good for graduation, work, and weddings!) Some more in depth notes, from your friendly fashion blogger who overthinks these things:

  • I honestly couldn’t tell you what anyone wore to my law school graduation, because we all wore robes/gowns the whole time  — I know from pictures at dinner with my family afterward that I wore a black sheath dress with white grosgrain ribbon details that I got on some crazy deal at an outlet store, but that was me. I honestly don’t think it matters. Sheath dress, wedding guest attire, pants — it’s all fine. Don’t go crazy casual — keep the cutoff denim shorts at home, perhaps — but don’t stress too much.
  • Keep an eye on the ground when choosing your outfit — stiletto heels will sink into soft ground like grass and, depending on where the graduation is, you may be walking across a muddy field anyway. So: be practical, be comfortable. Don’t spend a ton on shoes that may be ruined by the conditions. Don’t wear flip flops, either, but don’t buy designer white suede stilettos just for the occasion.
  • Pockets may be a good thing, and your graduation gown/robe may not have them. If you won’t be carrying your bag with you to the ceremony itself, look for a dress with pockets so you can keep whatever your bare minimal essentials are on you — iPhone, $ 20, lip gloss, whatever. (The pictured dress does NOT have pockets, but it has the benefits of being affordable ($ 118), appropriate for summer weddings in that it isn’t too sexy or white, somewhat appropriate for work (with a navy blazer or cardigan on top), and, hey, it’s also wearable for law school graduation. This morning’s navy/pink dress would also work, as would the under-$ 50 blue dress we featured a few weeks ago. Here’s a plus size option that looks lovely (and has sleeves!), this one comes in regular and plus sizes, and this $ 128 option is very floral but very cute if that’s your thing.

Readers, let’s hear from you — what did you wear to your law school graduation (or any grad school graduation)? Did you party with friends/family immediately after graduation, or did you partake in more generic networking (which might require closer attention to your outfit)? (Taken from another direction — in general, what’s your go-to look for “wedding guest attire” — and how many dresses do you have in your closet that fit the bill?)

Wondering what to wear to law school graduation? It can feel tricky to strike the right balance between festive and professional -- and of course, it's a bonus if you can rewear your graduation outfit for wedding guest attire. Come hear our thoughts on what to wear to your law school graduation (or your college graduation or med school graduation or more!)

Patriots Star Julian Edelman Speaks Out About Thwarting Possible School Shooting

Patriots star Julian Edelman is speaking out for the first time after he stopped a potential school shooting with the help of his assistant and one of his 1.7 million Instagram followers.

In March, Edelman received a comment from an Instagram follower, warning him that someone had commented on one of his photos saying “I’m going to shoot my school up watch the news.” The frightening comment was posted one day after the March For Our Lives demonstration in Washington D.C., which called for an end to gun violence following a spate of school shootings.

“My heart just sunk. My first thought was I need to go and find the comment,” Edelman’s assistant Shannen Meon told Good Morning America in an interview broadcast Friday. “I took screenshots of everything and immediately called 911.”

The police traced the comment to an address in Port Huron, Mich., where they found a 14-year-old boy and two rifles belonging his mother. He was taken to a juvenile-detention center and charged with making a false report of a threat of terrorism, the New York Times reported.

“It’s scary to think that those types of things can happen at a place of learning and a place where kids are going just to grow up,” Edelman, 31, told Good Morning America.

The two-time Super Bowl champion also sent his thanks to the Instagram user who alerted him to the comment. “I just want to say thank you for being the awesome human being you are – keep on going over all the comments. You’re like the comment police, bro!” he added.

Leading Economist and His Brother Launch The Black Business School

After Lawrence Watkins helped his brother Boyce Watkins, Ph.D., a leading financial scholar and economist, launch a successful speaking career, the two joined forces again to create The Black Business School.

“We combined the best parts and removed the worst parts of our collective business school experience as both a professor and student,” said Lawrence Watkins. Our goal is to help African Americans obtain a culturally relevant, yet practical education in all things wealth building at a price they can afford. As of today, we’ve had over 56,000 students who have either registered for our free or paid courses on the platform.”

Black Enterprise caught up with Watkins to learn more.

 In comparison to attending a traditional college, what’s the value that the Black Business School offers participants?

  • Cultural relevance – Unless a person attended an HBCU or was in the Africana Studies department of a predominately white institution, they probably have had very little interaction with black instructors, especially in business. We solve this problem as the large majority of our instructors are black. We are especially proud to have brought on Dr. Claud Anderson, author of PowerNomics, to teach a course on community economic development. He has already done two public lectures with Boyce that has been popular with our audience.

 

  • Practical education – A fundamental fallacy of college education for black people is that the universities teach you how to work for someone else, but not yourself. If we owned the majority of institutions that control our day-to-day lives, then this would be OK. Unfortunately, we don’t. Therefore, we need to deploy a different strategy to gain wealth as a community. Our courses focus on the subjects that are practically applicable to teach our students how to make money now. We conclude some theory, but practicality is the focus. We also focus our attention on the subject areas where black people can make their money without having many institutional gatekeepers. These areas of focus are small business & entrepreneurship, securities investing, real estate investing, marketing & sales, personal finance, data & technology, and leadership & personal development. The first three paths already exist in our organization but will be expanding to the other four over the next several months.

 

  • Low cost – Traditional college is putting a lot of students in debt. I know as I also have a couple of those fancy degrees. I ask myself if it was worth it often. I don’t want the rest of our community to have to make the same choice. I want them to be able to get an education and also buy the real estate that will help them attain generational wealth. We price our programs at a rate to where most students can pay out of pocket instead of taking out $ 100,000 in student loans. We are very proud of this fact.

What are your most popular courses?

The course that initially kicked off the acceleration of the BBS was Black Money 102: How to Invest in the Stock Market by Dr. Boyce Watkins. We noticed from social media there were many people in our community that did not know the basics of stock market investing. So, Boyce took the financial concepts that he taught at Syracuse University and shared that knowledge with the black community. Currently, we’ve had about 4,000 current & past students in this one class alone.

We launched a crypto-currency and blockchain investing initiative because we believe that Blockchain technology represents the next frontier of technological innovation. Part of this initiative involved creating the world’s largest African & African-American focused investing community at 60,000+ members. In December, we had over 22,000 people register to attend our online Crypto Investing Summit. Our premium blockchain mastermind, the Digital Underground, has had over 1,400 enrollments. The first token that has come out from the Digital Underground mastermind is LUV. LUV is an immutable Ethereum smart contract, an ERC-20 backed blockchain token that focuses on spreading awareness, education, and adoption of blockchain technology usage. LUV is priceless and cannot be bought. Authentic LUV is only given away for free.

How to predict high school dropouts

Teenagers who do not access healthcare when needed are at greater risk of dropping out of high school. Dropouts are more likely to have combinations of the following traits: low conscientiousness, neuroticism and introversion. The study examined data from the US National Longitudinal Study of Adolescents to Adult Health, a nationally representative sample of 90,000 students in grades 7 to 12 at 132 schools.

These discoveries may help optimize how boys and girls are taught English.

Today I cheered my kids on as they walked out of school

by

Sara McGinnis

posted in Parenting

My high school was eerily quiet on April 20, 1999. We didn’t have cell phones but all the same, word quickly spread that two students at Columbine had murdered 12 of their peers and one teacher.

I was a senior over a thousand miles away, but Columbine affected us the same way 9/11 affected the entire United States two years later. We no longer felt safe. I had conversations with friends that included sarcastic quips like “Hope we can live long enough to graduate,” and genuine thoughts like “Something has to change. This is not okay.”

Nearly 19 years later (19 years!) my kids, who are in middle school now, practice lockdown drills. We have conversations about the run/hide/fight strategy. I fear they won’t survive high school.

Nothing has changed and it’s disgusting.

Wednesday morning I penned a note for each of my sons that read, “Hell yeah, my child has my permission to walk out of school on 3/14/18. Never again.” I felt teary as I signed my name below, emotional about having to do something as ridiculous as support my children in their quest not to be murdered at their desks.

At 10:00 I watched with pride as my sons marched out of their school with their peers. When my elder son shouted “safe” I joined in with the classmates as they chanted “schools” in reply. I tried not to think too much about how in the 19 years since I felt that pit of fear in my stomach, we’ve done nothing but watch more children be killed by guns. I refused to think about how we’ve failed kids, because no middle-schooler wants to have their mom crying in front of their classmates.

As a few people on our community’s Facebook page were happy to point out to me, one 17-minute protest by a few dozen middle schoolers isn’t going to get big results. Regardless, I saw each of the kids who walked out today experience finding their voice, supporting a cause, and standing up for what they believe is right.

What more can you ask from kids who are having chicken nuggets and chocolate milk for lunch?

It’s ludicrous that children are the ones bringing attention to their right to be safe, but it was glorious to see. Keep on, next generation. May you find a way where we have failed.

Kaiser Permanente Creates New Engaging Library Space at Underserved School in South Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES — Kaiser Permanente is pleased to announce the unveiling of a new Upper Elementary Library at Barrett Elementary School in South Los Angeles.

With a team of community members and school volunteers, Kaiser Permanente staff transformed an unused classroom at the elementary school into an engaging space for third- through fifth-grade students. Barrett Elementary School Principal Jera Turner hopes the library will cultivate a love of reading and spark students’ curiosity about the world around them.

The unveiling event will take place at the school on Friday, March 9, featuring remarks by Wanda Austin, former chief executive officer of Aerospace Corp., a leading architect for the nation’s space program. Austin is one of the “Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics” heroes honored on one of the walls of the library. The event will also include student presentations and a tour of the newly renovated space.

Murals grace the walls that were designed by Helene Cobb, artist and retired Los Angeles Unified School District teacher, whose work can be seen at several schools in the area. They represent California’s unique range of ecosystems, as well as outerspace, bringing nature indoors in a 360-degree experience. Teams turned desks into works of art, creating colorful energizing work surfaces. Additionally, drought-resistant native California plants were placed in the kindergarten play area to attract wildlife and nurture an appreciation of nature.

The Upper Elementary Library was made possible by a donation of more than 4,000 books by Kaiser Permanente’s Educational Theatre. In collaboration with LAUSD, Jordan-Locke network of schools, Educational Theatre has committed to present all three of their elementary health education programs at each of the 16 Jordan-Locke schools over the next three years, with follow-up support provided by Watts Counseling and Learning Center.

“We are happy to have been invited to transform this space into a special place that encourages a love of reading and learning.” said Gerry Farrell, director, Southern California Educational Theatre for Kaiser Permanente. “We hope it will continue to inspire students at this school for many generations to come.”

For information about the event, contact Jennifer Lounibos, manager of booking and communications for Kaiser Permanente Educational Theatre Program, at 213-841-6759.

The Mom Who Let Cruz Stay Confronted Him, Wanted to Strangle Him, After School Attack

The family who let the Florida shooter stay in their home after his adopted mother died last year have spoken out about what he was like to live with—and how they wanted to “strangle” him when they saw him after he shot 17 of his schoolmates dead last week.

James and Kimberly Snead invited Nikolas Cruz—a friend of their son— to live their home after his adopted mother, Lynda Cruz, died of pneumonia in November of last year. Speaking on ABC’s Good Morning America on Monday, accompanied by their lawyer, the Sneads described Cruz as “polite” and said he followed house rules “to a T.”

The couple insisted they had no indication that Cruz was planning a mass shooting at his high school and said they were unaware of his sinister Instagram accounts where he posted about his obsession with guns and his fondness for killing animals. The FBI has been heavily criticized for failing to follow up tips about Cruz’s intentions.

Florida school shooting survivors delivered powerful speeches at an anti-gun rally, and they didn’t hold back

Florida school shooting survivors delivered powerful speeches at an anti-gun rally, and they didn’t hold back


Florida school shooting survivors delivered powerful speeches at an anti-gun rally, and they didn’t hold back

The survivors of the devastating school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland aren’t staying silent. On Saturday, February 17th, students, staff, and members of the community joined together at a Florida school shooting protest in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The survivors spoke out against the gun lobby, the National Rifle Association, and the lax gun laws that led to the tragic events of February 14th.

The Rally to Support Firearm Safety Legislation was a raw, intense affair. Still fresh from the events that left 17 students and staff members dead, survivors shared their stories and experiences with the large crowd. High school senior Emma Gonzalez was among those who spoke for the victims, and those left behind.

“Every single person up here today, all these people should be home grieving,” Emma Gonzalez said in her speech at the Florida school shooting protest. “But instead we are up here standing together because if all our government and President can do is send thoughts and prayers, then it’s time for victims to be the change that we need to see.”

Gonzalez has been an especially powerful voice in the days since the shooting. During the attack, she sat with fellow students in the auditorium of her school, not knowing what would come next. But at the rally, she was one of the survivors who spoke out against gun violence the loudest.

Senior David Hogg spoke too, urging those in the crowd — and the millions watching across the world — to vote out politicians who support the gun lobby.

“This is not just another mass shooting. No shooting is just another mass shooting,” Hogg said. “This needs to be a turning point. This shooting was the result of a number of situations and individuals, but action can still and should still be taken to prevent something like this from happening. People in Congress, people in state legislatures, just lawmakers in general, need to stand up and not let these political divisions prevent them from saving children’s lives.

Gonzalez, Hogg, and other speakers weren’t shy about getting political.

From Florida Senator Marco Rubio all the way to Donald Trump, the students were ready to call out anyone who was content to offer nothing more than ‘thoughts and prayers.’ And it looks like this is just the beginning of the activism of the Florida school shooting survivors. Staff and students alike have vowed to bring about change in an era of escalating gun violence.

“We will be the last mass shooting,” Gonzalez told the crowd. The shooter, 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz, is charged with killing 17 people and injuring many more in what has become one of the deadliest school shootings in history.

Our hearts go out to the victims of the families and the survivors. We can only hope that the words of Emma Gonzalez prove true.

Florida School Shooting Suspect Reported To Be White Nationalist

The alleged Florida gunman accused of killing 17 people at a high school Wednesday afternoon in one of the deadliest mass shootings in U.S. history, wasn’t just reportedly suffering from mental illness—he’s also a white nationalist.

 

The Man Behind the Gun

Nikolas Cruz, 19, created chaos and frenzy at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, when he pulled a fire alarm and then opened fire into a flood of panicked teens. News reports reveal that Cruz suffered from depression and had been expelled from the school last year after getting into a fight. The suspect had also posted disturbing comments on social media using derogatory slurs directed at blacks and Muslims as well as expressing desires to become a “professional school shooter.”

Still, despite his alarming obsession with firearms and murder, he had unrestricted access to guns. On the day of the shooting rampage, he was armed with an AR-15 and several magazines.

President Donald Trump responded to the mass shooting Thursday morning in a tweet calling Cruz “mentally disturbed” and urging Americans to contact authorities about people who pose a threat of danger. Trump echoed that sentiment during a press conference where he vowed to “tackle the difficult issue of mental health.” However, by framing the mass shooting as merely a mental health issue, the president has failed to acknowledge two overarching factors in this tragedy: lax gun laws and the resurgence of white nationalist violence in America.


 

The Rise of White Hate Groups

Cruz was more than just a troubled teen. According to ABC News, he’s a member of a white supremacist group called the Republic of Florida, a self-described “white civil rights organization fighting for white identitarian politics” and aiming to create a “white ethnostate.” In 2017, Florida residents complained about the group’s growing presence in fear that it would lead to violence. “I really feel like they’re not any different from a terrorist group in the Middle East or anywhere else—or even just like a gang,” said Jay Godin, a Tallahassee resident, to ABC News affiliate WTXL.

Jordan Jereb, the leader of the Republic of Florida, confirmed that Cruz had participated in the group’s armed combat training, but denied that the organization had any dealings in the massacre. “He acted on his own behalf of what he just did and he’s solely responsible for what he just did,” said Jereb.

The Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks extremist groups, listed the Republic of Florida as part of its “Hatewatch” in 2015. Although there is no clear motive behind Cruz’s massacre, it’s worth noting that the group’s resurgence coincides with the rise of the Alt-Right, a notorious movement that includes white supremacists and Trump loyalists. Over the last four years, 43 people have died at the hands of white supremacists while dozens more have been injured. Trump, however, has yet to denounce the acts of violence committed by the Alt-Right. Instead, he called the white nationalists who participated in a deadly rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, back in August “very fine people.”

Packing my kid’s lunch for school is a dumb competition with myself

by

Maggie Downs

posted in Life

The scene is something out of a horror movie. An artisan, free-range horror movie.

I pull the silicone mold from the refrigerator. The homemade gummy bears pop out, minus adorable heads and faces. Instead of woodland creatures, they resemble gnawed roadkill.

I was determined to make healthy treats for my preschool son’s lunchbox — my quest to give him everything I never had — only they’ve made a massacre of my kitchen. Half the beet-kale slurry is dripping down the blender; the other half has been shaped into the stuff of gummy nightmares.

I was weaned on the culinary hits of 1980s Ohio, and my immigrant mother was proud to scoot me off to school with a brown bag of Americana. Meatloaf sandwiches, Ding Dongs, Tab. The closest I ever got to an antioxidant was a Crunchberry.

Now my mother has long passed, I have my own family, and we’ve moved on to California, where I cook some form of kale each day. It’s state law.

A basket full of leafy, green kale on a white tablecloth

 

While my mom admired both the convenience and technology of novelties like spray cheese, I make my own yogurt, pickle everything short of the furniture, and spend so long in the kitchen I’ve sprouted gray hairs just crafting the appetizer course.

I don’t know why I do this. My TV isn’t black and white, I don’t hand crank my car, but I fully embrace fermenting?

My culinary efforts seem even more futile since my food critic is a toddler, and making healthy fare appealing to him can be a stretch. (“This isn’t just quinoa — it’s Batman quinoa.”) Hence the dumb bears with gaping faces.

About a dozen of them look passable, so I arrange them into an Instagrammable heart.

Purple-ish red gummy bears arranged into a heart shape

 

Perhaps they taste good? I sample one, and I’m slapped with the flavor of mulch and mom guilt. They taste like self-loathing, coincidentally what I’m feeling as I heave the gummies into the garbage.

I’d turn to my child for lunch ideas, but he’s no help. Like most toddlers, he’s both confident and incompetent — determined to have his way, even though he concocts the worst ideas.

“What would you like for lunch?” I asked recently.

“Ice cream. But hot.”

“That’s never going to happen.” I explained the whole point of ice cream is that it’s cold. That’s how it works.

“How about cold hotcakes?” he countered.

A small muffin in a yellow tin

 

Instead I end up packing an almond butter muffin, some chia pudding, an apple, baby carrots. It’s a solid meal, albeit an underwhelming one — there’s not even a sushi roll made to look like an adorable panda — but it’ll have to do.

Anyway today’s lunchbox beats what my son ate yesterday, when I caught him hunkered down on the floor, crunching kibble with our Dachshund.

At least the dog food was organic.

What in the heck do toddlers eat?

Oh No Ma’am: Teen Suffering a Medical Condition Gets Her Wig Snatched Off at School, Family Plans to Prosecute Students Involved [Video]

16-year-old Lauren ‘Lulu’ Williams has turned her humiliation into triumph after classmates at Franklin High School in Tennessee filmed themselves ripping off her wig for a $ 5 bet.

Lauren suffers from psoriasis — a condition that causes severe scalp dryness and hair breakage and loss. She turned to wearing wigs to mask the condition.

The wig was glued and pinned to Lauren’s scalp. As the bully snatched it off, she was left with chunks of her hair missing. The torment didn’t stop there. Another student followed her into the bathroom with a camera as she tried to hide.

“She followed me in there, was laughing, videotaping me over the stall,” Lauren said.

Sadly, the incident was then shared on Snapchat with the caption ‘weave snatching’.

After regaining her composure, Lauren decided to shave her head completely in an effort to stand up against bullying and not thet them win.

“My hair was one of my biggest insecurities so I felt like he had taken my power and I wanted it back,” explained Lauren.  “When I walk around with a bald head he’ll know that he didn’t do anything but give me more power to speak out to other people.”

Her mother took to social to express her outrage and concern.

“Yesterday I received a call from my youngest daughter screaming and crying on the phone, for me to come and get her from school. 

Apparently, some boys had taken a $ 5 BET about pulling her wig off in front of everyone. Lulu has a scalp condition that causes severe dryness and hair breakage and loss, and had been so ashamed of her appearance that she had taken to wearing wigs in an effort to still feel beautiful. We all know how easy it is to feel insecure at age 16.

These kids not only tore her wig off in the middle of school, but video taped it. They followed her to the bathroom as she screamed and cried and proceeded to tape her OVER the stall as she cried and begged for her wig.

Later I had to take her to the hospital for abrasions and whiplash.

Lulu later decided to shave her hair off and not let these bullies win. She was not wanting to feel controlled by her hair any longer, and take back her control. I am only posting this with her permission but yesterday our entire family was angered and in tears about the way she was treated.

The teen suicide rate has now DOUBLED and bullying has played a HUGE Role.

If you have a teen in this situation, continue to uplift them and let them know that they are strong and beautiful and can own thier insecurities and take control rather than being controlled.

I admire the strength and beauty of my little Lulu and know that she will inspire many others even through this difficult time in her life.
#SayNoToShaming2018

Please share Lulu’s story if you have or know a teen who needs to know they are beautiful no matter what! Let’s empower other young girls to reclaim Thier Power!

Bullies will not win in 2018.”

Officials with Williamson County Schools released the following statement regarding the incident.

The Franklin High administration and the School Resource Officer immediately began investigating an incident when it was reported to them Friday afternoon. This type of behavior can never be tolerated at school. In addition to school discipline, WCS prosecutes delinquent behavior to the fullest extent of the law.

The Williams plan to prosecute the students involved to the fullest extent of the law. Check out Lauren’s mother’s post below.
