MAY GOD BLESS THIS AIRLINE CAPTAIN. My lead flight attendant came to me and said, "We have an H.R. on this flight.
" (H.R. stands for human remains.) "Are they military? " I asked. 'Yes', she said. Blind Man Goes for a Spin in Google's New Driverless Car - Rebecca J. Rosen - Technology. In celebration of 200,000 miles driven without an actual human driver, Google has provided us a glimpse of just how powerful this technology will be for people who are blind.
A video produced by the company shows Steve Mahan drive from his house to a local Taco Bell. Mahan is 95 percent blind, or as he puts it "well past legally blind. " Kids Arrested and Jailed After Cafeteria Food Fight. This is a surreal story that I watched on my local news last night.
A food fight in a downriver Detroit area public prison school cafeteria, in Monroe, led to the suspension and arrest of four kids, and criminal charges. Plus, the students face potential expulsion from the school (the best thing that can happen to them). You have to watch the video. Watch the four high school boys being paraded through the courtroom in shackles, handcuffs, and striped jail suits. School officials released a statement claiming that this was not just mere horseplay because of the “potential injury to innocent students.”
It's madness to tell a five-year-old boy who likes tutus that he has a 'gender identity disorder' Zachary Avery's whim should not be indulged (Photo: Caters) You would expect at least the Sun, the most irreverent newspaper in Britain, to have a dig at the idea of Gender Identity Disorder and the fashion for allowing boys as young as five to live as girls (and vice versa).
But no. Yesterday's paper not only treated with great sympathy the Essex-based parents who have allowed their five-year-old son Zach to live as a girl; it also published a helpline number for a transgender group called Mermaids, so that "if you are a parent whose child has gender identity issues, you can get information and advice". When even the Sun refuses to raise one of its trademark smirks in response to a story about a five-year-old boy living as a girl, you know this is a thoroughly PC-ed, increasingly uncritical nation.

Russia and NASA plan to COLONISE the Moon. High performance access to file storage Russian, American and European space agencies are in talks to create a human colony on the Moon, according to Russian news source Rianovosti.
Artist's impression of the Moon station from Nasa's Global Exploration Roadmap Russia wants to build either a space base on the surface of the Moon itself or a space station that closely orbits the heavenly body – and has planned talks with NASA and the European Space Agency about creating the manned base. It has been 40 years since humans visited the Moon and Russia cosmo-bosses want to go further this time. "We don’t want the man to just step on the Moon,” agency chief Vladimir Popovkin said in an interview with Vesti FM radio station. Russian space officials are already working on a "prospective manned transportation system" to the Moon, Popovkin said. The Moon plans form part of the Global Exploration Roadmap [PDF], an international plan for the human exploration of space. Believing in Tim Tebow - ESPN.

The ruling elite has created social institutions that have subdued young Americans and broken their spirit of resistance.Bruce E.
LevineAlterNet Traditionally, young people have energized democratic movements. So it is a major coup for the ruling elite to have created societal institutions that have subdued young Americans and broken their spirit of resistance to domination. Young Americans—even more so than older Americans—appear to have acquiesced to the idea that the corporatocracy can completely screw them and that they are helpless to do anything about it. A 2010 Gallup poll asked Americans “Do you think the Social Security system will be able to pay you a benefit when you retire?” How exactly has American society subdued young Americans? 1. Today in the United States, two-thirds of graduating seniors at four-year colleges have student-loan debt, including over 62 percent of public university graduates. 2.

Posted by Billy Bones 1080 days ago. TSA agents grope high school students at prom security checkpoint. (NaturalNews) It seems like it was just last week that I warned NaturalNews readers about how the TSA was expanding to become the new Nazi Secret Police of America.
Actually, it was just last week ( And now, over the weekend, the TSA confirmed exactly what I was warning about: They have expanded their security checkpoint pat-down searches to high school prom night, which now involves TSA perverts feeling up high school girls in their formal dresses. Recently the TSA threatened to set up a security checkpoint at the Sante Fe High School and conducted illegal searches on high school prom students there. The agency ultimately backed down and didn't go through with the checkpoint plan at that high school, but one month earlier at Capital High School, two students were sexually molested by the TSA and filed a lawsuit over the incident ( Obamacare is a Public Requiem by Supreme Decree. Add to this discretionary allocation, the revolting practice of exceptions. The issuance of waivers from the law to political favorites or "too big to fail" conglomerates, is blatantly a violation of equal protection.
Yet, in the hologram construct that passes for lawful government, the whims of class warfare, becomes the standard for this abhorrent Obama administration. The favoritism of the corporate/state economy at the expense of main street free enterprise is as vivid as it has even been. LETTER BY A FLORIDA TEACHER. This is a subject close to my heart. Do you know that we have adult students at the school where I teach who are NOT U.S. citizens and who get the PELL Grant, which is a federal grant (no payback required) plus other federal grants to go to school? One student from the Dominican Republic told me that she didn’t want me to find a job for her after she finished my program, because she was getting housing from our housing department and she was getting a PELL Grant which paid for her total tuition and books, plus money leftover.
She was looking into WAIT which gives students a CREDIT CARD for gas to come to school, and into CARIBE which is a special program (check it out – I did) for immigrants and it pays for child care and all sorts of needs while they go to school or training. The one student I just mentioned told me she was not going to be a U.S.
