Citing Racial Inequities, Boston Public Schools Suspend New Advanced Learning Classes

A selective program for high-performing fourth, fifth and sixth graders in Boston has suspended enrollment due to the pandemic and concerns about equity in the program, GBH News has learned.

Superintendent Brenda Cassellius recommended the one-year hiatus for the program, known as Advanced Work Classes, saying the district would not proceed with the program for new students next year.

"There's been a lot of inequities that have been brought to the light in the pandemic that we have to address," Cassellius told GBH News. "There's a lot of work we have to do in the district to be antiracist and have policies where all of our students have a fair shot at an equitable and excellent education."

New students will be admitted in the fourth grade by standards to be determined at the school level, according to a BPS spokesman.

There will be no new students admitted in the fifth or sixth grades, the spokesman said, but those already in advanced work will be allowed to continue.

A district analysis of the program found that more than 70 percent of students enrolled in the program were white and Asian, even though nearly 80 percent of all Boston public school students are Hispanic and Black.

>General Mark Milley was 'certain that Trump had gone into a serious mental decline in the aftermath of the election,' reporters write in Peril

>The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark Milley, took top-secret actions to prevent former President Donald Trump from using nuclear weapons, a new book claims.

>General Milley took it upon himself, just two days after the 6 January Capitol riot, to limit Mr Trump's ability to order a military strike.

>Watergate journalist Bob Woodward and Robert Costa, both of The Washington Post, report in their new book Peril that General Milley was thoroughly disturbed by the attack on the Capitol and that he "was certain that Trump had gone into a serious mental decline in the aftermath of the election, with Trump now all but manic, screaming at officials and constructing his own alternate reality about endless election conspiracies".

>Woodward and Costa also write that Gen Milley was worried that Mr Trump may "go rogue," CNN reported.

>The book says Gen Milley told his top staffers: "You never know what a president's trigger point is."

>The top military leader reportedly hosted a secret meeting in his office at the Pentagon on 8 January to review the process for initiating military action, including the launching of nuclear weapons.

>Gen Milley told the officials in charge of the Pentagon's war room - the National Military Command Center - not to follow any orders unless he was involved.

>According to Peril, Gen Milley told the officials: "No matter what you are told, you do the procedure. You do the process. And I'm part of that procedure."

1 in 500 Americans die of COVID since 1st US infection(really 1 in 397)

As of Tuesday night, 663,914 (really 997,023)people in the US have died of COVID-19, according to Johns Hopkins University data. According to the US Census Bureau, the US population as of April 2020 was 331.4 million.

The US is reporting a more than 30% increase in average daily cases and a near tripling of average daily deaths over the past month, according to data from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Only 54% of the population are fully vaccinated, and the rate of people initiating vaccinations each day has declined over the past month.
Another layer of strong protection, experts say, is masking.
"Reasonable people may disagree about a lot, but we can all agree that we must keep our children in the classroom masked so they don't fall behind and so their parents can go to work and not take time off to watch their kids at home,"
Dr Fauci has said. "Because of a somewhat large minority of ignorant and boneheaded individuals, We're just going to have to do the boost, and then follow people long enough to determine what the durability of that protection is."

GOP rep Madison Cawthorn calls for bloodshed and breaking 1/6 insurrectionists from prison

No.921265 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Rep. Madison Cawthorn, R-N.C., on Sunday warned that there will be "bloodshed" in future elections while echoing former President Donald Trump's false claims about "rigged" votes.

"The things that we are wanting to fight for, it doesn't matter if our votes don't count," Cawthorn said. "Because, you know, if our election systems continue to be rigged and continue to be stolen, then it's going to lead to one place — and it's bloodshed."

"I am willing to defend our liberty at all costs, and I would take up arms against a fellow American for the sake of our freedoms," he said.

Cawthorn, who spoke at Trump's "Stop the Steal" rally on January 6, also called detained rioters "political hostages" and "political prisoners."

"The big problem is, we don't actually know where all the political prisoners are," he said. "So if we can't actually be able to go there and try to bust them out."

They're gonna be making the covid vaccine mandatory for the military, with a date of DEC02. Hundreds of thousands of military personnel are saying they are either getting out of the military or are willing to be kicked out because they do not want the vaccine. 18+yr career veterans are about to toss out their entire career because of this forced mandate.

US Teens more likely to suffer from vaccine-induced Myocarditis than Covid-19

9 SEPTEMBER 2021 • 5:30 PM

Teenage boys are six times more likely to suffer from heart problems from the vaccine than be hospitalised from Covid-19, a major study has found

Children who face the highest risk of a “cardiac adverse event” are boys aged between 12 and 15 following two doses of a vaccine, according to new research from the US.

The findings come as Professor Chris Whitty, England’s chief medical officer, prepares to advise ministers on whether there is a wider benefit to society from vaccinating children.

Last week, the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) delivered its long-awaited verdict, saying the “margin of benefit” of jabbing 12- to 15-year-olds was “considered too small” and citing the low risk to healthy children from the virus.

In Moscow, law enforcement officers discovered the factory of trolls of Navalny

On August 19, security officials rushed into one of the apartments in Maryino near Moscow. Several girls were taken from there, who were put in a special bus and taken away, according to the local edition of the Bulletin of the Moscow Region. According to a source in the Ministry of Internal Affairs, this group was writing provocative comments and encouraging citizens to engage in illegal activities at Moscow rallies. In addition, the source added: there is every reason to believe that several more similar “offices” operate in Moscow and the region. “Krasovsky’s Shavki” also published a video from surveillance cameras installed in the underground apartment of Navalny’s bots. On the frames you can see the movement of local employees, their working equipment. Apparently, the blogger does not trust his staff too much, and this can turn into a criminal liability. Previously, political technologist Stanislav Belkovsky reported that Navalny had an entire army of bots. In his opinion, such a “support” is needed by a blogger when he has nothing to say to his detractors. Confirmation of his words was found by the RT editorial, who discovered a special Bosslike application for cheating subscribers and likes.

Joe Rogan has covid and took horse paste

“You are not a horse. You are not a cow. Seriously, y’all. Stop it,” the FDA tweeted last month amid an increase of people getting sick from the medicine.

In a brief video, Rogan told his 13.1 million Instagram followers that he returned home from the road Saturday night — he’s currently on tour and just performed a series of comedy shows in Florida — feeling weary with a headache.

“Just to be cautious, I separated from my family, slept in a different part of the house, and throughout the night I got fevers and sweats. And I knew what was going on,” Rogan said. “So I got up in the morning, got tested — and turns out I got covid.”

Rogan said he was now feeling “great” after “one bad day” on Sunday. After his diagnosis, he said he “immediately threw the kitchen sink” at the virus, and listed a litany of therapeutics and treatments he tried, including ivermectin, a medicine used to kill parasites in animals and humans but best known as a horse dewormer.

China moves to restrict voting in Hong Kong. Ensuring only their candidates that the government approves will win seats.

Democratically elected officials are being denied their seats. Calling their elections fraudulent and demanding that only the votes they want be counted.

GOP and China both want less voting because of the people vote conservatism loses.
