University looks to add diversity rating to faculty evaluations

University looks to add diversity rating to faculty evaluations | 25 Sept 2017 | (Muncie, IN) Ball State University's Faculty Council plans to allow students to rate the inclusiveness of classroom environments on end-of-semester evaluations. According to Inside Higher Ed, the council agrees that such an assessment should be included, but hasn't reached a consensus on the exact language of the question, nor whether it should be geared toward individual instructors or the university as a whole ... Some students, however, claimed the initial proposal wasn't direct enough, including Black Students Association President Da'Prielle Fuller, who said the question "should directly ask" about each professor's individual contributions to diversity on campus. [How can a professor make contributions to diversity other than by contributing to diversity of thought -- or otherwise by changing their identity to a more "diverse" one?]

North Korea's Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho told the United Nations General Assembly on Saturday that targeting the U.S. mainland with its rockets was inevitable after "Mr Evil President" Trump called Pyongyang's leader a "rocket man" on a suicide mission. Trump and Kim have traded increasingly threatening and personal insults as Pyongyang races toward its goal of developing a nuclear-tipped missile capable of reaching the United States - something Trump has vowed to prevent.

"Facing no resistance of the ISIS militants, the SDF units are advancing along the left shore of the Euphrates towards Deir ez-Zor," the statement reads. The newly released images "clearly show that US special ops are stationed at the outposts previously set up by ISIS militants." This could mean that the US military staff "feel absolutely safe" in the area which is held by the terrorists, the Ministry of Defense stated. [Now, stop calling me a 'conspiracy theorist.' This is about the hundredth article I've found detailing the *fact* that ISIS is a wholly-owned and operated CIA front in the globalists' war on Syria. --LRP]

Dam operators said it began to show signs of failing, causing flash flooding, on Friday around 2:10 p.m. ET. "Move to higher ground now," the National Weather Service urged residents in the area.

Latest Obamacare Repeal Effort Is Most Far-Reaching | 21 Sept 2017 | The bill that Senate Republican leaders have vowed to bring to a vote next week...dismantles the Medicaid expansion and the system of subsidies to help people afford insurance.

The White House and Senate leaders are now in an intensive final push to repeal the Affordable Care Act by September 30.

Samantha Power sought to unmask Americans on almost daily basis, sources say

Samantha Power sought to unmask Americans on almost daily basis, sources say | 20 Sept 2017 | Samantha Power, the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, was 'unmasking' at such a rapid pace in the final months of the Obama administration that she averaged more than one request for every working day in 2016 - and even sought information in the days leading up to President Trump's inauguration, multiple sources close to the matter told Fox News. Two sources, who were not authorized to speak on the record, said the requests to identify Americans whose names surfaced in foreign intelligence reporting, known as unmasking, exceeded 260 last year. One source indicated this occurred in the final days of the Obama White House.

'It's destroyed everything in its path': Puerto Rico in total darkness after Hurricane Maria knocks out 100% of island's power

'It's destroyed everything in its path': Puerto Rico in total darkness after Hurricane Maria knocks out 100% of the island's power while nearly two feet of rain turns roads into rivers of mud --Maria made landfall on Puerto Rico Wednesday morning as a Cat. 4 hurricane with 155 mph winds --Forecasters say it could regain strength and Maria could again become a major hurricane by Thursday | 20 Sept 2017 | Puerto Rico may be without power for months after Hurricane Maria hit the U.S. territory with powerful winds that downed trees, ripped the roofs off homes and turned roads into rivers with flash flooding. Gov. Ricardo Rosselló told CNN late Wednesday night that it may take months to restore power to the entire island. He said that as a result of the powerful Category 4 hurricane, no one on the island has power from utilities since the power grid is 'a little bit old, mishandled and weak'. More than 10,000 remained in shelters Wednesday night as the governor has imposed a curfew on the island from 6pm to 6am beginning Wednesday and ending on Saturday morning.

 

Shocking emails reveal editor of food science journal was on Monsanto's payroll at $400 per hour

Shocking emails reveal editor of food science journal was on Monsanto's payroll at $400 per hour | 20 Sept 2017 | Recently released court documents reveal what many people have long suspected: Monsanto [terrorist group and Obama's best buds] had a hand in the retraction of a groundbreaking study that left little doubt about the dangers of glyphosate in a prominent food science journal. Monsanto will do anything to protect the reputation of Roundup and its other herbicide products – which earned them $1.9 billion in gross profits in 2015 alone - and that includes silencing their detractors. It has now emerged that the Editor in Chief of the journal Food and Chemical Toxicology who oversaw the famous study's retraction was on Monsanto's payroll. This is a conflict of interest at best, and possibly something far more underhanded, and they might have gotten away with it had their lawyers succeeded in preventing their internal documents from being released in a class action lawsuit filed against the firm by cancer patients.
