NEW TRUMP IS THE OLD TRUMP!
He said he plans to build a border wall…
Mexico would pay for it 100%!
Will they pay for the wall?
There is this…
POLLING. BLOOD. BATH?
People hate Colin Keapernick.
Freeman talked to seven executives of unclear seniority, one of whom believed Kaepernick was as loathed among the league as Rae Carruth, the former Carolina Panthers player who conspired to murder his pregnant girlfriend. The ones quoted shared the same line of thought:
“I don’t want him anywhere near my team,” one front office executive said. “He’s a traitor.”
“He has no respect for our country,” one team executive said. “F—k that guy.”
Another said that if an owner asked him to sign Kaepernick, he would consider resigning, rather than do it.
“In my career, I have never seen a guy so hated by front office guys as Kaepernick,” one general manager said.
That team executive who claimed they’d quit over a request to sign Kaepernick shockingly didn’t go public, so no one can ever call their bluff. Maybe it’s bullshit and that executive doesn’t actually have any power to sign players, or maybe this executive does have the power to sign players but doesn’t want to jeopardize the future possibility of signing Kaepernick or players who agree with him. It’s an abuse of anonymity either way.
The author from Deadspin, a liberal social justice warrior blog, is mad these guys didn’t go on the record so this loser could demand they be fired for having an opinion.
If these executives stand behind their stated beliefs, why wouldn’t they put their names to it? Maybe they just don’t have the courage of their convictions. In the NFL, you can commit career suicide by speaking your mind, with the death blows delivered by cowards who never have to show their faces.
Sad guy is sad.
Let’s let a bunch of people guilty of gun crimes out of prison for some reason…
Don Siegelman is still hilariously in jail…
Speaking of sorry Governors, Bentley is still whining about his impeachment…
A University of Iowa professor is asking the athletics department to make the university’s mascot, Herky the Hawk, display friendlier facial expressions, arguing that his angry grimace is traumatizing students.
“I believe incoming students should be met with welcoming, nurturing, calm, accepting and happy messages,”Resmiye Oral, a clinical professor of pediatrics, wrote Tuesday in an email to athletic department officials, obtained by the Iowa City Press-Citizen.
“And our campus community is doing a great job in that regard when it comes to words. However, Herky’s angry, to say the least, faces conveying an invitation to aggressivity and even violence are not compatible with the verbal messages that we try to convey to and instill in our students and campus community,” she argued.
Ms. Oral told the Press-Citizen that she has been concerned for some time about Herky the Hawk’s lack of emotional diversity. Her email to the athletics department was included in a message she sent Tuesday morning to her fellow members of the UI Faculty Senate.
“As we strive to tackle depression, suicide, violence, and behavioral challenges and help our students succeed, I plead with you to allow Herky to be like one of us, sometimes sad, sometimes happy, sometimes angry, sometimes concentrated,” Ms. Oral wrote.
Lack of “emotional diversity”…
One Auburn University engineering professor has brought the national debate over trigger warnings into the classroom by posting a sarcastic warning near the top of the syllabus for one of his Fall 2016 courses.
Prof. Peter Schwartz’s tongue-in-cheek take on trigger warnings – which have become ubiquitous on many campuses across the country – warns students that the course will subject them to such horrors as physics, work and quizzes.
It’s an attempt at humor from a man who on Monday told AL.com that he finds trigger warnings “silly” and he would never issue a serious trigger warning.TRIGGER WARNING: physics, trigonometry, sine, cosine, tangent, vector, force, work, energy, stress, quiz, grade
“I think trigger warnings are a joke to begin with and I wanted to see what one might look like in an engineering course. Looks kind of silly, doesn’t it? That (sic) because it is,” he said via email. Auburn did not respond to requests for comment Tuesday.
