By Michael Zennie UPDATED: 02:49 GMT, 22 February 2012 Two teenage girls were forced to drop out of their high school in Gainesville, Florida, when they began getting death threats after they posted a 15-minute racist rant about 'black people.' In the disturbing video, the girls cheerily complain about the African-American students in their classes and drag out a litany traditional racist stereotypes.
Unfortunately, the workers who cook, prepare, and serve our food suffer from poverty wages, a lack of basic benefits like paid sick days, and often have little or no chance to move up to better positions. When the people who serve us food can’t afford to pay the rent or take a day off when they’re sick, our dining experience suffers. The 2nd annual 2013 ROC National Diners’ Guide provides information on the wage, benefits, and promotion practices of the 150 most popular restaurants in America in 9 major cities across the country, from Los Angeles to Washington, D.C. to New York City. The Guide also lists responsible restaurants where you can eat knowing that your server can afford to pay the rent and your cook isn’t working while sick.
Here it is again, the intersection of Presidents Day and Black History Month. Eight of our early presidents, beginning with George Washington, owned slaves during their tenure in the nation's highest office. The two I am most familiar with, given my career at the historic sites of Monticello and Montpelier, and as the author of the recently published A Slave in the White House (Palgrave Macmillan, $28.00) are Thomas Jefferson and James Madison. Jefferson and Madison owned over a hundred enslaved people at their Virginia plantations and took several slaves with them to the White House. Running the domestic side of the executive mansion was a private undertaking then, and the third and fourth president each assembled a household staff, headed by a French steward, of about ten: white and free black workers, slaves hired in the capital, as well as slaves from their plantation.
One of the most common ailments that people face during allergy season and in the cold winter months is a sinus infection. Inflammation of the sinuses and nasal passages are typically the result of a sinus infection. Medicinal treatment options are available; however, there are a number of effective home remedies for a sinus infection as well. More people have become interested in natural home remedies for sinus infection because it allows them to avoid unnecessary over the counter or prescription medications. The most common symptoms of a sinus infection include sinus headaches in the temple area or around the eyes, nasal congestion, sore throat, watery eyes, and fever. If you have any of these symptoms, it may be beneficial to consider some home remedies for sinus infection* before taking medications.

Think of each investment that you own as a thread in a tapestry. Each component of a portfolio should be there for a reason--and not because you think it's a candidate for the world's best investment. Some people collect investments like kids used to collect baseball cards. Before they know it, these collectors have a smorgasbord of unrelated investments with no cohesive strategy at work. Worse, those investments often are concentrated in similar types of assets (like large company stocks).
