Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

Paige has been moved out of NICU to their intermediate room for preemies as she is off the billi lights and is taking a bottle, but just not as much formula as the doc wants, so they are still feeding her by tube to get her the CCs of formula.

She should be home maybe this weekend!

LOL OL... I could just pretend to send it and keep the $100 for myself, too. ;)

That's good news, Stephanie.

NC State Rolls Out PhD In "Social Justice Education"

The program, which will debut in fall 2019, aims to teach educators, or "scholar-activists," about social justice and how they can bring about change in the classroom setting, according to an NC State news release.

“The goal of the program is to help educators recognize and disrupt systems of oppression by helping to foster and create equitable learning environments,” Jessica DeCuir-Gunby, a professor of educational psychology and director of graduate programs for the Teacher Education and Learning Sciences Department, said in the news release.

...

Courses that are required to attain the Ph.D. in social justice education include “Social Justice in Education,” “Diversity & Equity Scholar Leader Course,” and more.

NCSU College Republicans chairman Kye Laughter told Campus Reform he views this new Ph.D. program as a way to push social justice on future students.

“I think any person pursuing a degree or a Ph.D. in social justice already has an agenda in mind and this field will only allow bias to grow not only among those in academia but for those being taught this dangerous ideology,” Laughter said.

The chairman also suggested that the program shows that the university has a double standard, contending that a Ph.D. in a conservative thought field would never be created.

“Our university should not be afraid of discussing different ideas, but I am doubtful we will see any Ph.D. programs in conservative ideologies anytime soon, as academia has been infested with liberalism,” Laughter said, while noting that the university excels in fields like agriculture, engineering, and architecture.

I am getting ads for Rose gal on the sidebar. They are pushing the ugliest hoodies I have ever seen. They had one the other day that looked like a side of beef hanging in a butcher shop.

JiB, the back hair hoodie is worse.

If the Junior Johnson Wine & Spirits Club doesn't deliver to their house you could call a local shop and pay for something for them to pick up. Like an NFA transfer. They just have to show their ID, right? It's more or less what FTD does.

After Winning Election, Democrat Ilhan Omar Now Says She ‘Supports BDS Movement’

Minnesota Democrat Ilhan Omar came out against the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement during her campaign, but after winning election, she now says she "supports the BDS movement."

Omar, a Muslim Somali-American elected last week to replace outgoing Rep. Keith Ellison (D., Minn.) in the House, fought accusations that she held anti-Israel views during her campaign. As part of that effort, she told a group of Jewish voters in the state that she opposed the economic boycott of Israel, calling it "counteractive" and "not helpful in getting that two-state solution."

But Omar's tune has changed since winning the election. In an interview published Sunday by MuslimGirl, Omar said she "supports the BDS movement."

"Ilhan believes in and supports the BDS movement, and has fought to make sure people’s right to support it isn’t criminalized," her campaign told MuslimGirl, which said Omar had been criticized for coming out against BDS. Omar's campaign also pointed MuslimGirl to her vote against an anti-BDS bill in Minnesota's state legislature and her argument that boycott movements were successful in South Africa.

The comment is seen as a complete reversal by members of the Jewish community in her district.

I'm sure iNCeST was trying to preempt the Holes by doing this but it's such a Moo U thing.
