Forget Cheat ‘Sheet’ — Student Outwits Professor With Enormous 'Cheat Poster'

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 09:01:23 -0400

(image) When Professor Reb Beatty of Maryland’s Anne Arundel Community College arrived at his accounting class to administer a test last week, he hardly could have imagined that he’d be the one getting outsmarted. In a Sept. 20 Facebook post that’s since gone viral, Beatty explained that he’d told his students that they were allowed to bring in a “3x5” cheat sheet to use during the test. Beatty, however, failed to specify the unit of measurement he was referring to.

Far-right returns to German parliament for first time in 60 years as Angela Merkel wins 4th term

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 15:03:03 -0400

The far-Right returned to the German parliament for the first time in almost 60 years on Sunday night as Angela Merkel won a record-equalling fourth term in power. The success of the far-Right Alternative for Germany (AfD), which became the third largest party, tempered a remarkable political comeback by Mrs Merkel after the controversy over her handling of the migrant crisis. Her Christian Democratic Union (CDU) remained the largest party in parliament, and the only party capable of forming a government, although analysts said it could take until Christmas to forge a coalition. “Of course we hoped for a better result,” Mrs Merkel told supporters in Berlin. “But we have a mandate to form a government. And no government can be formed against us.” But she acknowledged that dramatic gains for the AfD were the “biggest challenge” facing her government, and vowed to win voters back from the party which campaigned on a nationalist anti-immigrant platform. “This is a great  night. We did it. We are in parliament,” Alexander Gauland, the AfD’s chancellor candidate said. “We will change this country,” he vowed. Supporters of the the German right-wing populist party 'Alternative for Germany' (AfD), react Credit: EPA/THORSTEN WAGNER “We will hunt Merkel, and reclaim our country and our people.” But Germany’s system of coalition government will limit the impact of the AfD as mainstream parties unite against it. Mrs Merkel’s former coalition partner, the Social Democratic Party (SPD) suffered the worst electoral defeat in its history and immediately announced it would go into opposition. Initial exit polls gave the CDU 32.5 per cent of the vote together with its Bavarian sister party, the Christian Social Union (CSU) — down from 41.5 per cent four years ago. AfD top candidates Alexander Gauland and Alice Weidel celebrate with their supporters Credit: AP Photo/Martin Meissner The SPD were second with 20 per cent, followed by the AfD with 13.5 per cent — expected to translate to around 88 seats in parliament. “We lost the election,” Martin Schulz, the SPD leader who was talked of as Germany’s next chancellor as recently as six months ago, told supporters. But he said he wanted to stay on as party leader and vowed to take the fight to the AfD. “We are the bulwark of democracy,” he said. AfD hopes of becoming the official opposition party appeared to be dashed when the SPD announced it would not seek a renewal of the current “Grand Coalition” with Mrs Merkel.  German Social Democrat (SPD) and chancellor candidate Martin Schulz speaks Credit: Maja Hitij/Getty Images “This is a rejection of the Grand Coalition,” Thomas Oppermann, the party’s parliamentary leader said. The rise of the AfD and the fall in the CDU’s share of the vote were widely seen as a backlash over Mrs Merkel’s controversial 2015 decision to open Germany’s borders to asylum-seekers. But less than a year after many had written Mrs Merkel’s chances off and her political obituaries were being written, a result which allows her to remain chancellor will also be seen as a comeback.

Alabama Senate primary: A proxy battle between Trump and Bannon for heart of Republican party

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 13:27:00 -0400

(image) In recent days, what would otherwise have been a straightforward – albeit colourful – contest between two candidates vying to fill the seat vacated by former Jeff Sessions, has turned into an increasingly bitter proxy war between Mr Trump and some of his formerly closest aides, who fear his anti-establishment instincts are being diluted by mainstream Republicans. Last week, at a rally for the “insurgent” candidate Judge Roy Moore, a 70-year-old religious conservative who sought to have a statue of the Ten Commandments installed in his courthouse and who lost his job as Alabama’s top judge after telling his colleagues to ignore a Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage, former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin said voters needed to fight for their ideas.

Planet X, or Nibiru, refers to a mythological planet in our solar system that will supposedly crash into Earth and wipe out the human race, however it has been consistently dismissed by Nasa and other experts as an internet hoax. Despite absolutely no scientific evidence to back up the suggestions of a rogue planet getting rapidly closer to Earth, myths about Planet X continue to be perpetuated online. End of the world (23 Sept 2017) Of course, this isn't the first time time harbingers of doom have predicted the end of time; Nasa also had to deny the existence of Nibiru in 2012. Throughout history there have been similar claims, but thankfully none of them so far have been proved correct.  How did conspiracy theories about Planet X start? Online chatter about Nibiru began back in 1995 when Wisconsin native Nancy Lieder created the alien-conspiracy website ZetaTalk. Ms Lieder claims to be a conduit for aliens from the Zeta Reticuli star system, 39.17 light years from Earth, who have warned her about the Nibiru catastrophe. The conspiracy theory hasn’t gone away, with so-called Christian numerologist David Meade claiming Planet X is heading in our direction. Meade believes October could see the start The Rapture and a seven-year tribulation period of widescale natural disasters. Why September 23? It has been claimed an unusual celestial arrangement mirroring signs from the Bible’s Book of Revelation, September 23, will signal the start of the end of the world.   However, the EarthSky blog notes there will be “nothing unique” about the sun, moon and planets on the date. “In the past 1,000 years, this same event has happened at least four times already, in 1827, 1483, 1293, and 1056,” explains astronomer Christopher M. Graney. Haven’t we been here before?

The Millerites were his followers and Millerism became a national movement, however when Jesus didn’t arrive, October 22, 1844, became known as the Great Disappointment. 1997 Twenty years ago, 29 members of Heaven’s Gate, a UFO religious millenarian group, committed suicide with the aim of boarding a UFO they believed was hiding behind the Hale-Bopp comet before the supposed end of the world. 2003 Planet X was also supposedly discovered by the ancient Sumerian people and was meant to hit Earth in 2003, but never arrived. “This catastrophe was initially predicted for May 2003, but when n[...]

India at UN calls Pakistan 'export factory for terror'

Sat, 23 Sep 2017 12:39:15 -0400

(image) India's foreign minister took a swipe at Pakistan Saturday, telling the United Nations that its neighbor had given the world "terrorists" while India was producing top-notch doctors and engineers. "Why is it today India is a recognized IT superpower in the world, and Pakistan is recognized only as the pre-eminent export factory for terror?" Sushma Swaraj told the General Assembly. Swaraj offered a response to an address earlier in the week by Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi who at the UN podium accused India of "massive and indiscriminate force" in Kashmir.

LeBron James destroys Trump with the perfect, understated insult

Sat, 23 Sep 2017 12:19:26 -0400

(image) There are so many things to call President Donald Trump.  On Saturday morning, LeBron James found the perfect one. The NBA star called Trump "U bum" over the president's rescinded invitation for Steph Curry to visit the White House, which came only after Curry stated that he didn't want to go anyway.  SEE ALSO: NFL players slam Donald Trump for rant against protests U bum @StephenCurry30 already said he ain't going! So therefore ain't no invite. Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up! — LeBron James (@KingJames) September 23, 2017 It's so simple, yet so perfect. Who needs to curse out the president when "U bum" gets it across so well?  U bum  https://t.co/PU1WuB9lqs — christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) September 23, 2017 at least the Trump era brought the until-now-criminally-underused insult of "bum" back — Erin Gloria Ryan (@morninggloria) September 23, 2017 I don't think I would ever recover from being called a bum by LeBron James — Tom Gara (@tomgara) September 23, 2017 Good morning to everybody but #UBum — Ashley C. Ford (@iSmashFizzle) September 23, 2017 everything is bad but if “bum” comes back into vogue as an insult that’s at least one tiny victory — Steve Kandell (@SteveKandell) September 23, 2017 gifted hands https://t.co/fMpLODRzpE — Rembert Browne (@rembert) September 23, 2017 Part of what's so beautiful is the proximity of the "bum" to the "therefore," it's like getting insulted by a flawless equation — Mallory Ortberg (@evilmallelis) September 23, 2017 Today was the day LeBron James truly became President. — Chris Hayes (@chrislhayes) September 23, 2017 Everyone loved James' insult so much that it got more than 130,000 retweets in less than an hour.  #UBum  WATCH: Lara Croft is back and more badass than ever
