Supreme Court declines to take on net neutrality challenges, in blow to telecom industry

Supreme Court declines to take on net neutrality challenges, in blow to telecom industry | 05 Nov 2018 | In a setback for industry groups, the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday announced that it would not take up challenges to Obama-era "net neutrality" regulations that barred internet service providers from giving certain customers preferential treatment.

It's NOT Okay to Be White in Canada's Universities

It's NOT Okay to Be White in Canada's Universities | 04 Nov 2018 | I am the student who put up the 'It's Okay To Be White' flyers at the University of Manitoba. This Is My Statement - The flyers were intended to convey one thing and one thing only: IT'S OKAY TO BE WHITE. They were posted in protest of racially discriminatory ideology that is taught at the University of Manitoba that targets white individuals. The absurd over-reaction, including by Harjit Sajjan, the Minister of National Defence, to a statement indicating it is "Okay" (i.e. acceptable) to be genetically European (white) is proof that many people do in fact believe it is not acceptable for an individual to be white. Simply stating that it is acceptable for an individual to have certain DNA has sparked outrage, accusations of "racism", "white supremacy", and "hatred", and has even been condemned as "offensive" and a "scare tactic".

Munro-Leighton sent an anonymous letter to Senator Kamala Harris on September 19, describing with graphic detail how Kavanaugh and a friend had supposedly raped her several times in the backseat of a car, but did not mention when or where.

(and what he had to say) --By Michael Rectenwald, NYU 01 Nov 2018

I thought he made some great points as he poked fun at the identity politics of the left, which was one of my bugbears as well.
