  • Daronda Elaine Williams with the Concerned Citizens of Prescott group spoke about the donation during the presser.

    "He's invested a half million dollars into leaving the door open so lawmakers can water down our educational standards," Williams continued. "He doesn't have kids in our schools. He doesn't live in our community."

    The Associated Press: Arkansas Supreme Court upholds 2021 voting restrictions that state judge found unconstitutional

    apnews.com Arkansas Supreme Court upholds 2021 voting restrictions that state judge found unconstitutional

    The Arkansas Supreme Court has upheld four voting restrictions passed by Republican lawmakers in 2021 that were struck down by a state judge as unconstitutional.

    The measures upheld include a change to the state’s voter ID law that removes the option for someone to sign an affidavit affirming their identity if they don’t present a photo identification at the polls.

    The other measures prevent anyone other than voters from being within 100 feet of a polling place, require an absentee voter’s signature on a ballot to match the signature on their voter registration application, and move up the deadline for voters to return absentee ballots in person.

    Business Insider: Private school vouchers: One state is a 'cautionary tale' for the cash

    www.businessinsider.com Arizona is a cautionary tale for school vouchers as a wave of states are giving parents cash to send their kids to private school

    A new Brookings report found Arizona's universal education savings accounts are primarily going to wealthy families. It's a red flag for other states.

    Arizona is a cautionary tale for school vouchers as a wave of states are giving parents cash to send their kids to private school

    The prominence of school vouchers continues to surge across the country — but they might not benefit the families who need them the most.

    Over the past few years, states like Ohio and Arkansas have expanded their school voucher programs to allow most or all parents to receive funding to send their kids to private schools. More than 20 states now have some kind of voucher program with more in consideration. Arizona was the first state to create a universal voucher program in 2022 — and experts have said it's the state to watch when analyzing the impact of vouchers for all.

    The modern school voucher movement started to grow in the 1990s under the idea that the government would give parents a certain amount of money to put toward private school tuition. The programs were means-tested, meaning recipients had to meet a certain poverty limit to receive assistance, with the idea that kids with fewer resources would be able to earn a better education at private schools.

    However, gradually, more states began to raise the poverty limit, making nearly any parent eligible to receive the funding — and in some states, it led to the cash going to the wealthiest families. Arizona is "a cautionary tale" regarding the expansion of vouchers, Josh Cowen, professor of education policy at Michigan State University, told Business Insider.

    If you're selected for jury duty (US), should you give up your anonymous social media accounts?

    I have old Facebook and Twitter accounts, maybe some others. I'm old so there's a MySpace account out there. But I've mostly been using reddit the last decade or so, and have migrated to Lemmy. Now, Lemmy is the only social media i use. Recent news got me thinking about this question.

    ABC4.com: Students walk out of Utah middle school to protest 'furries'

    “A lot of the information that’s been put out there is completely incorrect and inaccurate,” Nebo School District Public Information Officer Seth Sorensen told ABC4.com.

    While Sorensen said there have been issues with harassment or students making others feel uncomfortable or unsafe, he said most of the claims online are false.

    “The administration at the school addressed that with the entire student body and they sent out a couple of emails,” Sorensen said. “Some of those emails were misinterpreted, and parents took to online formats to voice some of their concerns and questions.”

    Sorensen said students are not dressing up as cats and dogs, and because there is a dress code in place, he doesn’t think videos that have been shared online are from Nebo schools. Sorensen emphasized that the main goals of the district are open communication and student safety.

    “Today, we had some students and parents choose to exercise their right to assemble, and do a little protest for what they perceived was something that was happening in the school,” Sorensen said. “It actually is not something that’s been occurring.”

    He said the reports of students dressing as animals are “a little bit inaccurate,” saying students wearing headbands with ears are similar to students wearing bows and sports jerseys. Sorensen said dressing up is “just what students of this age do.”

    “Interestingly enough, they really didn’t address us with anything they wanted changed,” Sorensen said of the protesters.

    ABC News: Exclusive: NAACP joins lawsuit against Arkansas LEARNS Act in attempt to fight anti-DEI efforts

    abcnews.go.com Exclusive: NAACP joins lawsuit against Arkansas LEARNS Act in attempt to fight anti-DEI efforts

    The NAACP and the Lawyers Committee on Civil Rights have filed a lawsuit as part of an attempt to fight back against what they describe as a wave of anti-DEI legislation.

    Exclusive: NAACP joins lawsuit against Arkansas LEARNS Act in attempt to fight anti-DEI efforts

    This latest effort is a part of the NAACP's attempt to fight what they describe as a wave of anti-diversity, equity and inclusion legislation across the country.

    The lawsuit argues that the Advanced Placement African American Studies classes taught in Arkansas' public schools have received inequitable treatment and have been marginalized and underfunded when compared to other advanced placement courses. The suit claims that the alleged inequities have both deprived students the opportunity to learn about African American history and contributions, and have maintained a level of systemic inequality.

    "We refuse to go back. The NAACP will continue to use every tool at our disposal to ensure that our constitutional rights are protected, and our culture respected. This is what standing for community looks like," NAACP President Derrick Johnson told ABC News.

    Johnson added, "From Arkansas to Alabama, the desecration of diversity, equity and inclusion poses an imminent threat to the future of our nation."

    I am a worthy human being

    I just took the description from Stuart Smalley's Wikipedia page.

    draw Stuart Smalley looking at himself in a mirror. Stuart participates in many (sometimes fictional) programs, not limited to Overeaters Anonymous, Children of Alcoholic Parents Anonymous, and Children of Rageaholic Parents Anonymous. He is an effeminate man with a perfectly coiffed bleached-blond hairdo, who regularly wears a yellow button-down shirt with a powder blue cardigan. It is frequently hinted that Stuart might be gay, but his sexual orientation is never clearly stated. All his romantic partners have names which could be male or female, like Dale, Chris, or Merle. His father gripes, "You'd drink too if you had Liberace for a son." Within the context of the show, Stuart is quick to point out that he is not a licensed therapist but relies instead upon the credibility of his own experiences as a non-professional. His guests are very often celebrities; however, Smalley is seemingly unaware of his guests' fame as he never uses their full names so as to "protect (their) anonymity." Other guests who appeared are his family members.

    Yo Bing,

    i want a realistic image of the following description of the universe. the universe exists on the surface of a sphere. the entirety of the sphere is pure emptiness except for the surface. at the beginning of a cycle to singularity the entire universe exists on one single point in that sphere. "the big bang" propelled all matter in the universe and sent it around the surface of the sphere where it all will eventually find singularity again on the other side. i want to see one of these universes with countless more in the background.
