I saw this and it made my blood boil, but there was no way that I could resist sharing this. We are at a point in time on this earth where there is quiet a few people that thinks it’s cool, or acceptable, to terrorize and/or hurt the weakest members of society. I’m talking about our Elders, women, or children.
You know the funny thing is that actually, there is no animal on this earth that just inflicts pain on another creature just to terrorize , in fact all I know of only hunt and kill just for food. So if I would have put that H1 up there, I would have said “Lower Than A Gutless Sewer Rat”.
How can anyone think it is funny to Bully someone until they consider suicide???? Well I want you to know that I don’t turn my head away, and from what I can see from this other good man named Robert, who just happens to be from Australia, and he’s the writer of this post that I shared, I don’t much think he likes it too much for people to hurt women, children, or our elders.
I think you get my meaning, so at this time I’m proud to introduce Mr. ROBERT SHERRIFF, who really is from Australia, and is an Actor, Poet, Author, Singer, and Historian.
Planned Parenthood Exposed for Alleged Horrible Treatment of Pregnant
This goes without saying, but Planned Parenthood is a deeply polarizing organization.
“The evidence suggests,” concludes a 2018 study published in the Open Journal of Preventive Medicine, “that [Planned Parenthood] has had a long-term inflationary effect on the incidence and prevalence of abortion in the U.S.”
Many conservatives and Christians feel that the “women’s health” organization cares about anything but that, and there’s certainly ample evidence to back that up.
Planned Parenthood aborts more than 300,000 babies a year, and abortion is an increasing part of the organization’s work.
Now we can add “raging hypocrites” to the ugly words associated with the group, according to a new New York Times report.
The Times reports that Planned Parenthood “has been accused of sidelining, ousting or otherwise handicapping pregnant employees, according to interviews with more than a dozen current and former employees.”
An organization that paints itself as a champion for pregnant women across the world is treating its own pregnant employees terribly? That is truly hypocrisy at its worst.
Some of the stories that The Times reported on are truly horrific, made all the worse by Planned Parenthood’s portrayal of itself as a champion of women’s reproductive rights.
Take, for instance, Planned Parenthood medical assistant Ta’Lisa Hairston. One of her job functions is to tell pregnant women various ways in which to stay healthy, such as taking rest breaks, staying hydrated and eating regular meals.
Imagine Hairston’s dismay when she couldn’t even follow her own advice when she got pregnant.
It’s not that she didn’t want to follow her own advice. She couldn’t because of her superiors at Planned Parenthood.
Hairston told her human resources department that her high blood pressure was threatening her pregnancy. She was even able to obtain nurse’s notes recommending she take frequent breaks, for her health and that of her unborn child.
Planned Parenthood officials turned up their noses at Hairston’s predicament. She told The Times that she rarely had time to rest or take lunch breaks.
“I had to hold back tears talking to pregnant women, telling them to take care of their pregnancies when I couldn’t take care of mine,” Hairston said. “It made me jealous.”
Hairston was hardly the only case of Planned Parenthood ignoring a pregnant employee’s needs. Interviews and legal documents procured by The Times revealed other instances of managers ignoring doctor-recommended rest breaks.
Managers are also alleged to have taken pregnancy into consideration when hiring.
More subtly, Planned Parenthood was also accused of fostering an environment where pregnant employees were afraid to speak up out of fear of seeming like they were abandoning their coworkers.
Upper management was also accused of viewing the accommodation of pregnant employees as “expensive and inconvenient.”
Unreal. Planned Parenthood is a lot of things, depending on who you ask. But based on these Times reports, even the most ardent supporters will struggle to defend the organization against hypocrisy.
Maryland high school football players
accused of sexually assaulting
teammates with broom
DAMASCAS, MD – Four 15-year-old Maryland high school football players charged as adults with rape for sexually assaulting four teammates with a broom during a hazing incident have been released on bond.
The Damascus High School athletes, whom NBC News is not identifying, were each charged with one count of first-degree rape, three counts of attempted rape and one count of conspiracy to commit rape, Montgomery County State’s Attorney John McCarthy said.
Each of the students was released Tuesday on $20,000 bond, according to court records. They are not allowed on the premises of Damascus High School, and they are not allowed to contact one another, McCarthy said.
A fifth teammate is accused of participating in at least one of the attacks and being charged as a juvenile but is also identified as one of four victims, charging documents show.
One of the alleged victims told police that the suspects held him down, pulled his pants down and poked his buttocks with a broomstick before “the broomstick was inserted into his anus a few inches,” prosecutors said.
Two of the victims said they were violently attacked, but were able to fight off the assailants before they “got the broom,” prosecutors said.
Another victim said a broomstick, which he described as a wooden handle with a “cut on the tip of it” said he was “stabbed” on the buttocks with the broomstick. When that victim tried to fight the attack, the suspects told him it was “tradition,” he told police.
When interviewed by investigators, one of the suspects said the broom “started from generations ago,” according to prosecutors, who said freshmen were the ones targeted.
Montgomery County State’s Attorney John McCarthy said citing tradition is not a defense.
“I’m offended by the term hazing. It’s not hazing, these are crimes, and I would caution anyone to refer to this as hazing. These boys were victims of criminal acts,” McCarthy said. “They were not victims of hazing, they were victims of first-degree rapes.”
The alleged rapes and attempted rapes happened on Oct. 31, according to the court documents. Damascus High School’s principal reported the possible assaults to police on Nov. 1.
Montgomery County Public School District Superintendent Jack Smith said in a statement that the district is cooperating with police and providing support for Damascus High School students.
“Our thoughts are with the students, staff and all who have been affected,” Smith said.
Google+ to shut down following bug that
exposed 500K profiles
Google yesterday announced that it will shut down the consumer version of Google+ following the discovery of a bug that it opted to keep secret.
In a blog post, the search giant framed the decision as one that makes sense given that very few people actively use Google+—”90 percent of Google+ user sessions are less than five seconds,” writes Ben Smith, a Google Fellow and VP of Engineering—and it doesn’t warrant the work required to keep tabs on developers.
But as the Wall Street Journal reports, the move comes after Google discovered a bug that left private user information open to developers in March, but declined to alert users for fear of regulatory scrutiny.
“A memo reviewed by the Journal prepared by Google’s legal and policy staff and shared with senior executives warned that disclosing the incident would likely trigger ‘immediate regulatory interest’ and invite comparisons to Facebook’s leak of user information to data firm Cambridge Analytica,” the Journal says.
Google CEO Sundar Pichai reportedly knew about the plan to forego notification.
In the blog post, Smith says Google discovered the bug in March as part of Project Strobe—”a root-and-branch review of third-party developer access to Google account and Android device data and of our philosophy around apps’ data access.”
The bug, according to Google, meant that third-party apps had access to “profile fields that were shared with the user, but not marked as public,” like name, email address, occupation, gender, and age. Google+ posts, messages, Google account data, phone numbers, or G Suite content were not accessible.
“We found no evidence that any developer was aware of this bug, or abusing the API, and we found no evidence that any Profile data was misused,” Smith says.
The bug, which Google patched in March, affected about 500,000 Google+ users. Was yours one of those accounts? Sorry, there’s no way to tell.
“We made Google+ with privacy in mind and therefore keep this API’s log data for only two weeks,” according to Smith. “That means we cannot confirm which users were impacted by this bug.”
According to Smith, the vulnerability didn’t rise to the level of requiring a notification. “Every year, we send millions of notifications to users about privacy and security bugs and issues. Whenever user data may have been affected, we go beyond our legal requirements and apply several criteria focused on our users in determining whether to provide notice,” he says.
It remains to be seen if regulators agree. Uber kept a 2016 data breach secret, and that just resulted in a $148 million fine.
The Google+ shutdown, meanwhile, will occur over the next 10 months, so get your fill before August 2019. If you use the service for work, though, Google+ is not going anywhere.
“Our review showed that Google+ is better suited as an enterprise product where co-workers can engage in internal discussions on a secure corporate social network,” Smith says. “Enterprise customers can set common access rules, and use central controls, for their entire organization. We’ve decided to focus on our enterprise efforts and will be launching new features purpose-built for businesses. We will share more information in the coming days.”
As part of the announcement, Google also promised to give users “more fine-grained control over what account data they choose to share with each app.” If an app wants access to a Calendar and Drive documents, for example, you can opt to share one but not the other.
Google will also “limit the apps that may seek permission to access your consumer Gmail data,” while Google Play will limit which apps that can ask for a user’s phone (including call logs) and SMS data.
Texas school shooter’s father suspects Bullying caused him to snap
When Bullying school programs began, I made the statement that these would never be successful, because they all addressed Child on Child Bullying only. In all my years experience, serious Bullying always involved at least one adult, and most times, it involved multiple adults, with at least one or more being teachers or coaches.
A 17-year-old student accused of fatally shooting 10 people at a Texas high school should be seen as a “victim” because he may have recently been bullied, causing him to lash out, his father said.
In a phone interview over the weekend with Greece’s Antenna TV, Antonios Pagourtzis said he wished he could have stopped the killing Friday at Santa Fe High School. His voice cracked as he described how he told police to let him inside the school so his son, Dimitrios Pagourtzis, could kill him instead. He said he suspects his son was under pressure, perhaps due to bullying.
“Something must have happened now, this last week,” he told the station. “Somebody probably came and hurt him, and since he was a solid boy, I don’t know what could have happened. I can’t say what happened. All I can say is what I suspect as a father.”
The suspect’s attorney, Nicholas Poehl, has said he is investigating whether his client endured any “teacher-on-student” bullying after reading reports of the teen being mistreated by football coaches. The school district issued a statement saying it investigated the accusations and “confirmed that these reports were untrue.”
The elder Pagourtzis said his son took a legally owned shotgun and handgun from his closet before leaving for school that day. The teen didn’t own firearms of his own, he said.
“My son, to me, is not a criminal, he’s a victim,” he said. “The kid didn’t own guns, I owned guns.”
Dimitrios Pagourtzis is being held in the Galveston County jail on capital murder charges. Authorities say eight students and two teachers were killed in the attack, and 13 others wounded.
Antonios Pagourtzis said his son never displayed any signs that he would be capable of such violence, explaining that he didn’t fight with others, didn’t drink alcohol and seemed to enjoy healthy pursuits such as working out.
“He pulled the trigger but he is not this person,” he said. “It is like we see in the movies when someone gets into his body and does things that are not done. It’s not possible in one day for the child to have changed so much.”
He said that after the teen had been taken into custody, he and his wife were allowed to visit him for 15-20 minutes.
“I saw the child. I didn’t see a child who is a murderer. A pure child, a child who was ashamed to look me in the face,” his father said. “He was thinking of his sisters, how his sisters will be able to get about. He said he loves me, he told his mother he loves her and he will try to be strong to help us cope.”
He said his son had told him he had acted on his own, and had spared “the kids who were the good kids so they can tell his story.”
