Broken discipline tracking systems let teachers flee troubled pasts

A central Florida teacher’s credentials were suspended after she was charged with battery for allegedly shoving and yelling at a 6-year-old student.

In Texas, a middle school math teacher lost his job and teaching license after he was caught on camera allegedly trying to meet a teenage boy in a sting set up by NBC’s nationally aired TV program To Catch a Predator.

All three of those teachers found their way back to the front of public school classrooms, simply by crossing state lines. They’re far from alone.

An investigation by the USA TODAY NETWORK found fundamental defects in the teacher screening systems used to ensure the safety of children in the nation's more than 13,000 school districts.

The patchwork system of laws and regulations — combined with inconsistent execution and flawed information sharing between states and school districts — fails to keep teachers with histories of serious misconduct out of classrooms and away from schoolchildren.

 

 

Exonerated prisoners 'existing one day at a time'

Lewis Jim Fogle was twice cursed.

Or that his incarceration is the fourth longest among the 337 people nationally who have been exonerated by DNA evidence since 1989.Had he been exonerated in Texas, he would stand to receive wrongful conviction compensation of $2.72 million and an annuity of equal value.

Had he been exonerated in Alabama, his compensation would be at least $1.7 million.

But he was exonerated in Pennsylvania.

His compensation here: Zero.

So, Jim, as he is known, not only had the nightmarish misfortune of being wrongfully convicted in Indiana County in 1982 in the murder of a 15-year-old girl, but he also was exonerated in one of 20 states that provide no compensation for those wrongfully convicted.

Never mind that the 34 years of imprisonment the Indiana, Pa., man wrongfully served— more than half his 64 years — is the longest among the 54 people who have been exonerated in Pennsylvania.

 

 

Catholic Leaders Say Zika Doesn’t Change Ban on Contraception

As the Zika virus spreads in Latin America, Catholic leaders are warning He urged couples to practice chastity or use “natural family planning,” a method in which women monitor their menstrual cycles and abstain from sex when they are fertile.women against using contraceptives or having abortions,

even as health officials in some countries are advising women not to get pregnant because of the risk of birth defects.

The challenge posed by Zika for the Roman Catholic Church comes as Pope Francis is making his first trip to Mexico, where the virus appears to be spreading.

After a period of saying little, bishops in Latin America are beginning to speak up and reassert the church’s opposition to birth control and abortion — positions that in Latin America are unpopular and often disregarded, even among Catholics. “Contraceptives are not a solution,” said Bishop Leonardo Ulrich Steiner,

the secretary general of the National Council of Bishops of Brazil, and an auxiliary bishop of Brasília,

in an interview.

“There is not a single change in the church’s position.”

He urged couples to practice chastity or use “natural family planning,” a method in which women monitor their menstrual cycles and abstain from sex when they are fertile.

Egypt's highest court has annulled a 15-year jail sentence for a policeman The 33-year-old mother was a leading member of the Socialist Popular Alliance Party and was among about 40 activists who had gathered to lay wreaths in Tahrir Square to commemorate those who died during the 2011 uprising. accused of shooting dead a protester.

A retrial has been ordered over the death of Shaimaa el-Sabbagh in January last year.

Images of the frail figure dying on a Cairo street after being hit by birdshot sparked outrage in Egypt and around the world.

Ms Sabbagh was with activists marching to Tahrir Square to mark the revolution that toppled President Hosni Mubarak.

Why was one death singled out?

The al-Yawm al-Sabi news website said the court had accepted an appeal filed by officer Yassin Hatim against his prison sentence and ordered a retrial.

Some Egyptians condemned the decision on social media, with the prominent 6 April protest group saying "Justice is a right" (in Arabic).

The 33-year-old mother was a leading member of the Socialist Popular Alliance Party and was among about 40 activists who had gathered to lay wreaths in Tahrir Square to commemorate those who died during the 2011 uprising.

Photographs showing her after she had been shot were widely shared on social media and hundreds of people attended her funeral in Alexandria.

One of the girls has been asked to explain to the class how she solved a math problem, but she has gotten confused.

She begins to count:

“One… two…” Then she pauses and looks at the teacher. The teacher takes the girl’s paper and rips it in half. “Go to the calm-down chair and sit,” she orders the girl, her voice rising sharply.

“There’s nothing that infuriates me more than when you don’t do what’s on your paper,” she says, as the girl retreats.

The teacher in the video, Charlotte Dial, works at a Success Academy charter school in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn.

She has been considered so effective that the network promoted her last year to being a model teacher, who helps train her colleagues.

After sending the girl out of the circle and having another child demonstrate how to solve the problem, Ms. Dial again chastises her, saying, “You’re confusing everybody.”

She then proclaims herself “very upset and very disappointed.”

Spain's Playground For The Wealthy Becomes Corruption Scandal Epicenter

Spain's royals don't keep their yachts at the Royal Yacht Club anymore. "The royals used to be here all the time, but now it's all about austerity. They don't want to flaunt their yachts paid for by big businessmen."The posh nautical club on the Mediterranean island of Mallorca still hosts a King's Cup sailing regatta each year.

But the Spanish royal family are no longer regulars.

"Take a walk down the dock, and you'll see lots of empty slips where super-yachts used to be," says Alejandro Montojo, eating a sandwich on the deck of a boat for lease by the charter company where he works.

"The royals used to be here all the time, but now it's all about austerity. They don't want to flaunt their yachts paid for by big businessmen."

One such royal yacht, the 136-foot Fortuna — a gift from Mallorcan businessmen to the former king, Juan Carlos — was sold three years ago

at the height of the economic crisis.

Tourism exploded on Mallorca, part of Spain's Balearic Island archipelago, after Juan Carlos began vacationing there as king decades ago.

It quickly became a playground for Europe's rich and famous — like a Spanish Monaco.

Its capital city, Palma, has two royal palaces towering over Mediterranean shores.

But what went on in those palaces is now the subject of Spain's most-watched corruption trial.

President Mamnoon Hussain told students that it was a Western tradition and conflicted with Muslim culture. His remarks came after a district in north-western Pakistan banned Valentine's Day celebrations.

Young and arrogant, unwilling to heed the advise of those who may express the value of his skills that could provide him with a great future life, all because he is immature.

Today, rather than looking forward to next year's NFL season, Johnny is awaiting to be charged with assault on his girlfriend that purportedly says that he damaged her ear drum with a blow to the head.

Instead of planning how to enjoy a new multi million dollar contract, Johnny is looking at being released from the Cleveland Browns and possibly, heading to jail.

Japan puts military on alert to shoot down North Korean rocket

Japan brings a totally different perspective to this issue

“Today the defence minister issued an order” to destroy such a missile if it “is confirmed that it will fall on Japanese territory”, Japan’s defence ministry said in a statement. Nakatani had issued the order, citing the “possibility that North Korea will launch a missile it calls a ‘satellite’ within coming days”, the statement added. Nakatani told reporters: “We want to take all possible measures to be ready to deal with any eventuality.” Japan’s prime minister, Shinzo Abe, called the possible launch a “serious provocation”, adding that he would work with the US and South Korea to demand that Pyongyang abandon the planned launch.Japan's response to North Korea's Rocket Launch isn't the same type of response that

America, Europe, or China

will take.

The fact that Japan, for the first time in 70 years.., recently..., voted to act against agression as a nation..., in itself...

adds a different perspective for

North Korea to consider.

Japan

has opted to get involved and one can only wonder how Japan's response to North Korea's lauch of a rocket, will look.

Japan putting its military on alert...

isn't the normal response, and perhaps we all have to actually consider what it means when a nation put its military on the alert.

Syria civil war: Donors pledge billions in vital aid

Syria's Al Assad... not being held accountable

Billions of dollars have been pledged for people affected by the Syrian war, on the first day of a donor conference.The World has taken in millions of Syrians whom have ran for their lives and no one has charged Assad.

The World has been feeding millions of Syrians whom are starving on other nation's lands and no one has

charged Assad.

The World is attempting to provide humanitarian aid to Syrians in the nation of Syria because Assad has not...

and no one has

charged Assad.

The World has seen the results of chemical weapons used on Syrian citizens in Syria and no one has

charge Assad.

So....

Why continue to bandage all the wounds caused by Assad and not actually remove Assad, in order to stop the wounds from happening?

By not removing and charging Assad... he is free to continue without any degree of accountability.

Water crisis spurs calls to change Michigan open-records law

400 Years of the practice of creating laws that protect elected officials

The 274 pages cover 2014 and 2015, including an 18-month period during which the city switched its water source to the Flint River while under state financial management until it reconnected to Detroit's system because of lead contamination blamed on state regulatory failures. Snyder withheld the emails of everyone else in the 70-person executive office along with his own emails from his first three years in office.The reason why the laws protect elected officials is because with each instance of an elected official acts of corruption that have gone to trial, laws are created by the remaining elected officials, that would protect those remaining individuals for prosecution.

Tax Paying Citizens

own every record of every action performed by any elected official and to deny the citizens access to the that information is a breach of contract when the individual is sworn into office.

Records released in this instance in Flint are only a partial release and the withheld emails associated with the decisions made by these representatives of the citizen of Flint belong to the Citizens of Flint.

Russia is teaching Hezbollah some terrifying new tricks

Should Russia be blamed if Hezbollah uses these tricks against Israel?

This is a concerning question that is an existing possibility, and if This new endeavor is also unique in that Hezbollah is fighting primarily in another country. Hezbollah has staged terrorist attacks in other countries before, but in Syria it's operating more or less as a traditional army rather than a guerrilla and terror group.Hezbollah Fighters opt to bring specific weapons, and specific tactics, attained from Russia,

to Gaza and begin to attack Israel,

this change will possibly cause others outside of the immediate relationship between Israel and Hezbollah, to the fight as well.

The concern that requires serious consideration is;

what would happen if and when such an event begin to take place?

Israel has just decided to take homes from Palestinians, and develop more land in area considered as Palestinian land,

even as close friends of Israel, like the U.S., continued requests of Israel, to cease developments...

go ignored by Israel's Netanyahu.

Italy minister says Iran statue cover-up 'incomprehensible'

When visiting... one must follow the rules of the lands visited

It is interesting how people from one nation, when visiting another The cover-up involved the placement of several wooden panels to shield nude statues at Rome's Capitoline Museums, where Rouhani and Renzi held a joint press conference Monday. The measures made headlines across Italy and prompted some politicians to accuse the government of caving into "cultural submission."nation, would expect to be respected for ones traditions in the nation in which one visit....

WRONG...

Every Nation has its individual right to believe in what that nation of people chooses to believe, and those that visit that nation...,

must adhere to the nation's rules and regulations as a visitor.

In this instance...

Italy's choice to cover up status that are hundreds of years old,

in order to appease Iran's President Hassan Rouhani

 is a travesty to the Nation of Italy.

Woman from Italy, who chose to visit Iran, or other Muslim Nations, would have no choice but to be treated as all natural born Muslim Woman from Iran, or any other Muslim Nation,

when a woman from Italy visits these nations.

So... if President Hassan Rouhani is offended by naked status...

then he should stay in Iran.

Trump-less Debate Sets A New Standard, But With A Familiar Outcome 1/29/16

Trump, a bully that has never been disciplined correctly

 

Trump's behavior is that of a individual that has never felt the true affects of effective discipline...,
be it a belt, or the removal of a want, or being restricted to the extent that he would have done anything to not have been restricted from a thing ever again.

 

The Correction of Flawed Behavior
is the immediate corrective action that leaves an immediate impression in the heart of the individual who
Behaves Poorly.

 

The justification to attack others because he feels that he isn't being treated nice, or fair, is an example of an individual that has never learned the value of
" respect is earned and not demanded ".

 

The unwillingness to acknowledge past mistakes, or admitting that he has attacked some in a not so nice way, is an indication that Donald Trump has never been taught that ability to admit wrong doing of any kind.

 

The American Demographics Shift
have disqualified the republican party from ever winning a national election due to the republican party's disrespect for those whom the regard as
unqualified to be part of their
American Equal State of Being.

 

These are the Facts:

 

Both existing Political Parties are completely aware of the future, as it associates to the future demographics structure that place the white americans
on the list of "minorities" in the next 40 years, and that minority ratio will continue to grow wider, on the side of the non whites for the entirety of this
American Future.

 

Today... Donald Trump is a Spoiled Brat Adult

Now it's simply a matter of when, not if, Griffin is cut free. But with passer Kirk Cousins yet to be re-signed, Redskins general manager Scot McCloughan said last month that Washington might wait until the new league year launches on March 9 to cut RGIII loose.

"The thing that's good about where we are right now is, we have until March 9," McCloughan said, per The Washington Post.

I Must Be

A Good Me

" First "

 

In this one and only known life time,

we must be able to stand

as a completely independent individual

before we can claim

respect for our

individual person.

 

Often times,

in this one life time,

we find ourselves in need

of help from others,

to include immediate family members,

friends, state governments

and even the government

that represent our nation.

 

During those times of need,

we are at our most

vulnerable state of being,

meaning,

we feel a sense of incompleteness,

we feel a sense of dishonor

for having to ask for help,

or actually need help

from anyone at all.

 

Often times,

in this one life time,

we find ourselves having to

help a family member

or a friend,

who are in a crisis of some sort,

and it’s during those times

when we actually help others,

that we wonder,

“how did that friend

or family member,

allow themselves to be in

a position of need?”.

 

During those times

of supporting others,

we carry an additional burden

on our already weakening shoulders,

and in some cases,

the additional burden becomes

too much,

and we strike out

at those that we love so much,

even if it’s our own children

that becomes the added burden

that breaks the back

of our capabilities,

leading to the out lashing

of anger.

 

In order to ensure

that we do not become a burden

on another person’s shoulders,

I must realize that

it is I who is responsible

for my existing status in life.

 

It is I

who must take responsibility

and ownership

of my flawed decisions,

I must take ownership

of my flawed behavior,

and it is

I who must do all the things necessary

to prevent from becoming

a burden on another person’s shoulders.

 

I must be

a good individual first,

and I do so

by focusing on what will ensure

that I am capable of taking care of

all of my individual needs,

to include being capable of

paying for my own living environment,

being able to pay

all of my bills

associated with my living environment,

being capable of paying

for the transportation that I need

to get me to all the places

that I must go each day,

and finally,

I must be capable of feeding myself

without the need of support

by anyone or

any entity.

 

I must be a good me first…,

before I can even consider

helping out a family member,

or helping out a friend,

because it’s my responsibility

to be a good me first,

and by being a good me first,

I won’t find myself becoming

a person in need of support

from any family member or friend,

who, themselves,

are struggling with being

their own strong individual.

 

After I have done all the things

in life necessary to ensure that

I am a good me,

from a educational perspective,

from a work experience perspective,

from a law abiding citizen perspective,

from a person possessing good character,

I will then be in a better status of life

to be able to help out others

without the possibility of becoming

a person in need.

 

If I am a good me,

and you are a good you,

then the two of us together,

become a force that can lead by example

for others to

mimic.

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the secretive leader of the Islamic State group, called for an uprising in Saudi Arabia and pledged to attack Israel, in an audio recording released Saturday and attributed to him.

IS leader urges uprising in Saudi, attacks in Israel: recording 12/27/15

 

Israel should be aware of the possible quagmire that could happen

 

Thus far....
Israel has not suffered from the affects of the Arab Spring that have removed all semblance of controls in
 Egypt, Syria and Libya.

 

Thus far....
Israel has not suffered from the affects of the Islamic State's reign of terror on almost every corner of the earth.

 

One simply has to wonder how is it that the Jewish Nation
has not become a focus of the Islamic Radicals,
specifically..., due to the close to 50 year squabble,
between Israel and the Palestinian people that have often
appeared to be a conflict that can be equated to a fight between
David and Goliath with Israel being the Goliath
in terms of the differences between the military might
and capabilities between these two constantly squabbling peoples.

 

Nonetheless...,
it appears that the history of peace for Israel may be coming to an end based on the announcements made by
Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah,
and you can read those comments displayed to the
left and to the right.

 

The question that immediately comes to mind is
"what would the attacks on Israel look like by the radical muslims" who have found a way to terrorize every corner of this earth
accept the small corner that Israeli's occupy?

Former Obama intel official: Hillary Clinton should drop out

A Valid Perspective from one who understands Security Clearance

"If it were me, I would have been out the door and probably in jail," said Flynn, who decried what he said was a "lack of accountability, frankly, in a person who should have been much more responsible in her actions as the secretary of state of the United States of America."Former Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, point is a valid point and the same point that all who have served in any position that is associated with a Security Clearance, a point that I have been making for years...

"anyone who is granted a Secret/Top Secret Clearance,

is directed, not to just protect these sensitive documents, but also, the individual is required to, when neccessary,

identify Secret/Top Secret Documents and handle those documents as required...

even if those documents, did not come into your possession,

not marked Secret/Top Secret.

Those who fail to treat this level of documents properly will be subjected to investigations leading to jail time, if the proper handling of such documents are not adhered too.

Hillary only defense is that the documents were not ladled "secret/top secret" when they were sent to her

is not an acceptable excuse when one considers the actual job responsibilities that Hillary served as the SoS.

At a minimum, Hillary failed to properly handle

U.S. Sensitive documents, which in itself...

provides enough understanding to conclude that,

a person in the seat of SoS for 4 years could not recognize sensitive documents, cannot lead this nation, based on the inability to recognize simple classified documents.

The failure in this instance, falls directly at the doors of those who are charged with securing U.S. Security because they have failed to act based on their own guidelines as it associates to the proper investigations of security breaches.

French PM Manuel Valls and US Secretary of State John Kerry said civilians were dying in Russian air strikes.

Russian PM Dmitry Medvedev said there was "no evidence of our bombing civilians, even though everyone is accusing us of this".

One observers' group says at least 1,015 civilians have been killed in Russian air strikes.

The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said late last month that close to a quarter of those killed were under the age of 18.

Minister Dmitry Medvedev says the strained relationship between his country and the West could be described as

"a new Cold War."

Speaking Saturday at the Munich Security Conference in Germany, Medvedev said he sometimes found himself wondering whether this was 2016 or 1962.
