If you've read any of my scoops, you know how I feel on this topic. I am so happy for equal love for all in our state. No matter how you feel on this topic, it is an important date in our state's history.
Project Censored specializes in covering the top stories which were subjected to media censorship either by being ignored or downplayed by the mainstream media each year. Project Censored is a research team composed of more than 200 university faculty, students, and community experts who annually review between 700 and 1,000 news story submissions for coverage, content, reliability of sources, and national significance.
At first when I read this I thought that they were talking about censoring innapropriate language. After fully reading this article, I found that the censoring is coming from the news reporters. They are not giving us the full stories, which obviously we don't all have time for that and it is not any different from what they usually do. I think that it's interesting that they are giving us the full stories now.
I don't believe that we need to get into any more war conflicts. If we has suspicions that they are going to harm their people, there are better ways of going at it than sending in our militia. This may seem as if we want to start a war with them, and if they do indeed have chemicals that are deadly, we don't want them more upset with us than they probably already are (I'm not sure if they like us in the first place, but my guess is that they are not allies)
This is so cute! If my fish did this I would just suspect that he was dead and not make him this nifty little life jacket. I think it's very sweet that the fish's owner loved him so much that he took time and spent some money to help save his fish.
These percentages make me nervous. I feel as though I am prepared for the work load in college, but if college professors only believe 26% of students are prepared and high school teachers think 89% are ready that means that even though some of my teachers may think I am on the right path to do well in college, I may not be. Hopefully taking college level classes will help me be a part of the 26% that are "well" or "very well" prepared for college.
Lindsey Graham Calls For Boston Bombing Suspect To Be Held As 'Enemy Combatant'
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) suggested on Friday that the Obama administration should toss the court system and...
The Boston bombings were a terrible event in our country's history, even though it only happened not even a week ago. I don't believe that they should just not use the Constitution and the court systems. Everyone, and I do mean everyone, should be allowed to have a fair trial. Even though we all know that this man should go to jail for a long time if not forever, he still deserves to be tried fairly.
LITTLE ROCK — Two proposed constitutional amendments already endorsed once by the legislative Joint Committee on Constitutional Amendments were rejected Monday after their sponsors proposed changes...
Since, I put too many celebrity scoops on here I figured that I should put more actual news stuff on here. I had no clue that giving gifts was such a big deal. Maybe "gifts" is a term for something else that I'm not understanding or aware of, but either way, I had no clue that it was going on so much.
By Lucia Peters and Krutika Mallikarjuna | Apr 14, 2013 | Betty Confidential, Buzz Feed, Wikipedia Think you know everything there is to know about Silver Linings Playbook star Jennifer Lawrence? Think again!
Jennifer Lawrence is my favorite actress hands down. She's funny, gorgeous, and who couldn't love her fall at the Oscars? I love that she doesn't change who she is just because she made it big in Hollywood. She is super inspiring and this article made me admire her even more.
A REFERENDUM should be held to provide for same sex marriage in the Constitution according to a resounding and historic vote passed by the Constitutional Convention.
Being able to love whoever you choose is something I back strongly. Though I am straight, I believe that is nothing wrong with being gay, and that people should be able to openly profess their love without being judged for it. I feel as though people should be allowed to be themselves without being shunned for who they love, what they worship, or what they look like. Eveyone deserves the right to love, and everyone deserves the right to be themselves.
The Supreme Court ruled unanimously on Monday that farmers could not use Monsanto’s patented genetically altered soybeans to create new seeds without paying the company a fee. (RT @PeterLembert: Remember Tomorrow: Supreme Court Supports Monsanto.
This story is all over my suggested things to scoop. I was surprised to see how important this matter is considering the only time I have ever heard of it was in class.
This is so crazy! I couldn't imagine being a parent and having your child that you believe to be gone forever to come home to you. I was really interested when we watched this video in class; I just wish there was more information on where they were kept captive, the conditions, etc.
The thing with this is that not all Americans are Christians and not all Christians are straight. Though Christianity is a major religion in the US, I believe that it is important to acknowledge the other religions as well. Times have changed and laws have changed (i.e. Prohibition) there is no reason that the Supreme Court could not pass the same-sex marriage law now.
Though I do not have a Twitter, I find this very interesting. I think that if teachers did end up using this the kids who do have a twitter would get more involved in the assignment, but I'm not sure what they'd do with the kids like me would do during this lesson. Overall, I think this is a really cool and unique idea that could probably done with other social networking sites aswell.
Your tax-free days of online shopping are numbered. If S743, also known as the Marketplace Fairness Act, becomes law, the millions of Americans who have been able to avoid sales tax online will have to start paying it. Given the broad support shown by today's US Senate vote, some version of it is likely to come to fruition.
Does this go for Minnesota too even though we don't have sales tax on clothing here? I don't really know how I feel about this. I am not one of those people who buys everything they own online, but I do do it occasionally. One of my friends buys all of her things online and this is going to make her super sad.
Salon Senator Lindsey Graham Says Suspend the Constitution For Boston Marathon ...
Once again someone wants to suspend the Constitution. If they do it this one time, then they will they to suspend it more often. Why not just give this man a trial and put him in jail. Make him pay in jail for the lives he's ruined, but after he has been tried.
A Portland couple recount being blocks away from the bombings at the Boston Marathon finish line.
This is so scary! I was just sitting at a friend's house and this story popped up on the tv. I couldn't imagine being in that scenario. I hope that they figure everything out, and that they do not find any more killed.
I think it's interesting who Forbes believes to be the "brightest" stars under 30. Some of my favorite actors on on the list. Mostly, I looked up Logan Lerman and this popped up. But after reading it and looking over the list, I was surprised to read of the people on their list. The biggest surprise was seeing Nev from "Catfish" on there. I love his show, but didn't see him as one of the brightest stars in Hollywood. But yeah, Logan Lerman(:
I absolutely love tumblr, so I think that it's interesting that there is a new tumblr for businesses. I never knew that businesses used tumblr to advertise their goods, which obviously they haven't read these tips yet. I love reblogging images on tumblr, and if I were able to buy things on there too, I would become even more obsessed.
The Senate is weighing the first major legislation aimed at curbing gun violence since the Newtown shootings, but despite months of negotiations the fate of that bill remains unclear. So instead of waiting for a vote, we are turning to you for help.
