PATRIOTIC HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS SUSPENDED

PATRIOTIC HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS SUSPENDED

SUSPENDED FOR 9/11 TRIBUTE WITH FLAGS

PRIOR TO FOOTBALL GAME ON “PATRIOT NIGHT”

Two high school football players in Ohio – one the son of a cop and the other the son of a firefighter ,

Carried first responder flags onto the field before their game Sept. 11,

to honor the fallen heroes who died in attacks 19 years ago – then were briefly suspended.

As the players took the field on a game advertised as “Patriot Night,”

they brought a “Thin Blue Line” and a “Thin Red Line” flag with them,

leading another teammate who carried an American flag.

But their request for permission to carry the flags was denied by district officials,

according to the head of the Little Miami Local Schools Board of Education.

And by Monday they found themselves suspended from the team, the Cincinnati-based WKRC-TV reported.

Brady Williams, a police officer’s son who plays cornerback for Little Miami High School,

Told the outlet he brought the flag to honor the people killed in the Sept. 11 attacks.

He and his teammate, Jarad Bentley, denied the move was politically motivated. Bentley carried the “Thin Red Line” flag.

The board of education and district administrators eventually agreed – overturning the athletic director’s suspension on Tuesday.

PATRIOTIC HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS SUSPENDED

“The results show that there were no political motivations behind this display of support for first responders on 9/11,”

Board of Education President Bobbie Grice said in a statement. “But there were stances of insubordination.”

Grice said the boys are allowed to return to practice and that any potential punishment,

For failing to follow instructions would come from their coaches, not district administrators.

It reversed a decision handed down Monday afternoon by athletics director Gregory Power, as WKRC reported.

“We can’t have students who decide to do something anyway after they’ve been told that they shouldn’t be doing it,” he told the outlet.

He said he had concerns that the flags were political in nature and could set a precedent,

Allowing other flags that had the potential to stir up political controversy.

The district also wanted to avoid further displays after reinstating the boys.

“As the season continues, the only two flags that will come through the Little Miami football tunnel,

Are the flag of the United States of America and the Little Miami spirit flag,” Grice said.

But the players said the dust-up was worth it.

“My dad is a firefighter, and if it had been him killed on 9/11, I would have wanted someone to do it for him,” Bentley told WKRC.

“I don’t care what my consequences are,” Williams added. “As long as my message gets across, I’ll be happy.”

DAWG SAYS: THE SCHOOL DID NOT WANT ANYTHING POITICAL IN NATURE BUT IT APPEARS THAT’S WHAT THEIR RULING WAS.

AND THEY WERE ACTING PTRIOTIC ON PATRIOT NIGHT.

REMEMBER THE ONLY PEOPLE THAT CAN VIOLATE YOUR FIRST AMMENDMANT RIGHTS IS THE GOVERNMENT OR ANYONE WORKING FOR THE GOVERNMENT.

SCHOOLS FIT IN THAT CATEGORY. THEY ARE CONSTANTLY ACTING AS INDOCTRINATON CENTERS.

KAMALA TALKS ABOUT A HARRIS ADMINISTRATION

KAMALA TALKS ABOUT A HARRIS ADMINISTRATION

Kamala Harris accidentally touts plan under a ‘Harris administration’

During round table event

Kamala Harris, Joe Biden‘s running mate in the 2020 election, raised eyebrows on Monday evening,

After she accidentally touted economic plans under a “Harris administration.”

Speaking during a virtual roundtable with small business owners in Arizona,

Harris vowed that they will have an ally in the White House with the campaign’s “Build Back Better” initiative.

However, the California senator appeared to briefly suggest that she was at the top of the Democratic ticket.

“A Harris administration, together with Joe Biden as the president of the United States,” she said. She quickly clarified,

“The Biden-Harris administration will provide access to $100 billion in low-interest loans and investments from minority business owners.”

KAMALA TALKS ABOUT A HARRIS ADMINISTRATION

Many on social media questioned whether Harris’ misstatement was a “Freudian slip”,

As critics of the Biden candidacy insist that former VP is a placeholder for the liberal senator.

“Joe better hire a food taster,” Richochet Editor-in-Chief Jon Gabriel quipped.

“Uh oh, Kamala. You weren’t supposed to say that part out loud!!” Daily Caller’s Greg Price exclaimed.

The Trump campaign quickly seized on Harris’ gaffe with the Trump War Room tweeting that Biden’s running mate “lets the truth slip.”

SILICONE VALLEY CUTS WAGES TO REMOTE WORKERS

VMware Cuts Pay for Remote Workers Fleeing Silicon Valley
Twitter among the tech companies localizing wages after moves

Facebook, ServiceNow may alter pay if workers leave Bay Area

VMware Inc. employees who take up the company’s offer to become permanent remote workers will get a pay cut,

If they move from Silicon Valley, one of the nation’s most costly areas to live, to a less-expensive city.

The software maker has joined technology companies such as Facebook Inc. and Twitter Inc.

In letting some of its office staff choose to permanently work from home in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

But employees who worked at VMware’s Palo Alto, California, headquarters and go to Denver, for example,

Must accept an 18% salary reduction, people familiar with the matter said.

Leaving Silicon Valley for Los Angeles or San Diego means relinquishing 8% of their annual pay,

Said the people, who asked not to be identified discussing internal policies.

Facebook and Twitter are among the other technology companies that have put in place or are considering similar pay policies.

A Twitter spokesman said the company has a “competitive” approach to localizing compensation,

While Facebook has publicly said it may cut employees’ salaries depending on where they choose to move.

VMware’s senior vice president of human resources, Rich Lang, said……


FACE MASK RECOGNITION HAS ARRIVED

FACE MASK RECOGNITION HAS ARRIVED

Face-mask recognition has arrived—for better or worse

Public shaming over not wearing a face mask started almost as soon as the COVID-19 pandemic itself.

In February, some provinces and municipalities in China made it mandatory to wear masks when in public.

News reports soon followed of residents and police chastising the non-compliant, a trend that’s now seen globally.

When Akash Takyar heard those early stories trickle out of China,

He was shocked at how things were being handled, and he wondered if his software company,

LeewayHertz could offer a more peaceful way.

Takyar recognized how important it is to wear a mask to slow the spread of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.

But rather than leave members of the public to monitor each other,

He wanted to develop a computer program that could look at images and detect whether people are wearing masks.

FACE MASK RECOGNITION HAS ARRIVED NEW TECHNOLOGY

His San Francisco-based company is one of many now pioneering mask recognition as a way to get people to comply for the public good.

So far, masks have been confounding traditional facial recognition software,

But these new machine learning tools could conceivably be used in private or public spaces to measure compliance and ostensibly take that out of the hands of individuals.

To date, 34 states and the District of Columbia have mask mandates for public spaces, both outdoors and indoors. But compliance……
