Britain: John Lewis 2017 Christmas Ad Features White Woman with Black Man and Mulatto Sprog

I won’t be running the John Lewis ad this year as part of my annual celebration of Christmas. Moz the Monster isn’t enough to make up for a despicable propaganda campaign urging white women to mate with black scum.

I guess when the woman in the video is found dead, they can blame Moz the Monster.

I’ll run the 2016 ad featuring Buster the Boxer instead:

Innovative High Tech School Backed by Mark Zuckerberg is Shutting Down

MAX VENTILLA. FOUNDER OF ALTSCHOOLS.

Silicon Valley was supposed to disrupt education, but economics is getting in the way. “Personalized learning” hasn’t been able to turn a profit, even with multimillion dollar susidies from celebrity CEOs.

The promise was huge. That well-known racial gap in learning was going to be bridged through individual lesson plans and progress reports.

How foolish!

Bloomberg

Max Ventilla sold investors on a promise to build modern, technology-infused schools that would revolutionize education. The former Google executive convinced Mark Zuckerberg and prominent venture capitalists to commit $175 million to his startup, AltSchool. The company built at least nine grade schools in California and New York, some equipped with ceiling-mounted video cameras, an abundance of computers, custom apps, robots and 3D printers.

But five years after opening, the for-profit venture has yet to solve a basic business equation. Despite charging about $30,000 for tuition, AltSchool’s losses are piling up as it spends at a pace of about $40 million per year. The San Francisco company is now scaling back its ambitions for opening elementary schools around the U.S. and will instead close at least one location. In an interview, Ventilla said it’s all part of the plan. The startup is shifting its focus to selling technology to other schools, a business which has struggled to date but that he said has a more promising future.

Venture investors spent $2.35 billion on education-technology startups globally last year, according to research firm CB Insights. But companies haven’t come up with a formula students will embrace or that can be deployed efficiently and profitably. The hype around online education has largely dissipated as dropout rates skyrocketed. Coursera Inc., backed by more than $200 million, cut staff last week and shook up the executive ranks, technology website Recode reported.

AltSchool’s pitch to investors was somewhat old-school. Ventilla wanted to build physical classrooms with first-rate teachers and complement them with “personalized” learning technology, so educators can tailor lessons for each child. At Google, Ventilla was in charge of an effort linking a user’s search history, emails, Maps usage and YouTube viewing habits into a single profile. He envisioned a similar approach to elementary schools.

With ample financial backing, including a $40 million round in May, AltSchool leased space in some of the country’s most expensive neighborhoods, hired experienced educators and recruited coders to build software for tracking classwork, evaluating students, ordering supplies, requesting IT support and communicating with parents. Ventilla had plans to expand in cities around the nation and license the technology. “We’ve literally built an operating system for a 21st century school system,” he said in 2015.

Inside the company, there was a struggle between the logistical demands of opening and operating schools, and the challenges of building technology that could be sold to educators across the U.S., said a former employee, who asked not to be identified because the discussions were private. Both initiatives are expensive. The software side won, and the company began shrinking the team in charge of school operations last year by cutting employees and not filling jobs after people leave. School sites in San Francisco were also consolidated, and plans for a Chicago location were called off.

Although the company touts the magic of its technology, two parents said their children benefited more from the extensive attention of talented teachers and small class sizes. There are multiple instructors per class, and the school places a premium on interdisciplinary projects, like building a model house that can withstand different weather—a task that incorporates current events, science, engineering and budgeting.

New Yorker’s in depth look at Altschools from a year and a half ago described the program when optimism was still high. An enterprising reporter went into the classroom to observe and found that tech in the classroom is a mixed bag of benefits and drawbacks.

The silver bullet that’s going to turn every kid into a genius remains elusive.

British Father Talks About Murdered Mudshark Daughter’s Toxic Relationship with Sikh Boyfriend

The Sun

A YOUNG woman has arrived home to a nightmare scene.

Her flatmate, 24-year-old Alice Ruggles, is lying in a pool of blood. Her throat has been slit from ear to ear.

The friend, Maxine McGill, dials 999 and sobs down the line: “Oh my God, she’s dead, she’s dead.”

She has discovered Alice lying on the bathroom floor in the home they share in Gateshead, Tyne and Wear.

As the call comes in, officers turn on their body cameras and start filming. Emergency services arrive and perform CPR on Alice, but she is pronounced dead shortly after.

During the call Maxine identified a suspect, Lance Corporal Trimaan ‘Harry’ Dhillon whom she calls an “absolute psychopath.”

Back in the major incident room at the police station, an officer plays the detective chief inspector a recording of a phone call Alice made to police 11 days before her murder.

She can be heard saying: “I split up with my boyfriend about three months ago. Since then, I know that he’s hacked into my Facebook and also my phone. And then tonight I had a knock on my door and there was no one there. It happened again two or three times.

“He’s left some flowers and chocolates on the outside windowsill.

“I’m concerned. My friends have been telling me to call the police. I’ve been putting it off but I just feel a bit shaken up tonight.”

Asked her ex’s name by the officer she replies: “Harry Dhillon.”

At 3.24am on Thurs day morning, their suspect is brought into Forth Banks Police Station in Newcastle.

The rest of the story at The Sun describes how quick police work was able to gather sufficient evidence to arrest and ultimately convict Dhillon, who is identified as having a Sikh background.

mirror.co.uk features Alice’s father, Professor Clive Ruggles, condemning police for not doing something to PREVENT Alice’s murder.

It may be presumptuous of me for saying this but I assume her father did nothing to prevent her murder either.

What I’m talking about is a warning to Alice throughout her childhood to stay away from nonwhite males.

HER FATHER. PROFESSOR CLIVE RUGGLES.

Speaking about his daughter’s death, Professor Ruggles said: “I think procedures let her down. There were many things that happened when she eventually contacted the police.

“The first thing that let her down was her being unaware of how much danger she was in in the early stages. By the time she really did ring the police there were hundreds of messages, he was bombarding her on the phone. He was controlling and obsessive.

“The event that really pushed her into being persuaded to call the police was there was a knock on her window. She was in a ground floor flat at midnight and when she opened the windows he was there outside and placed some chocolates an flowers on the window sill and was backing off.

“How could that have done anything but scare her to death?”

Alice’s family has set up The Alice Ruggles Trust to raise awareness of stalking and campaign for improved legal measures to stop it.

Professor Ruggles said: “We have to raise awareness. People don’t often realise they’re being stalked or how serious it is. Stalking is a word we use in a jokey way, it’s serious. We’ve got to help people raise awareness and let them know there is help out there.

“We’ve also got to work with the police and CPS to improve procedures. We don’t want to blame anyone but we want to see procedures changing.”

White dads must also have the guts to warn their daughters to avoid sand groids.

Dhillon has been sentenced to 22 years for the murder.

Beautiful Family Fights to Keep Alive Toddler Who Went 80 Minutes without Heartbeat in Drowning Incident

THE MATHERN FAMILY CHILDREN BEFORE BABY ADAM’S TRAGIC ACCIDENT.

Warning: This story may make you cry and draw you closer to God.

This is my feel good story of the day.

NOLA

On June 5, every parent’s nightmare became a reality for Lafitte natives Ricky and Shannon Matherne. Their 14-month-old son Adam, slipped out of their home unnoticed as the family was getting ready to leave for their daughter’s softball game. They found him lifeless in the family pool three minutes later.

CPR was performed until EMS arrived and transported him to the local hospital where he was revived. He went 80 minutes without issuing a heartbeat on his own. It was after being baptized in the emergency room that Adam’s heart once again began to beat, his parents said.

This was a child the couple never imagined having. Here is the backstory.

Ricky and Shannon grew up together in Lafitte and were high school sweethearts. In fact, his mother attended her mother’s baby shower when she was expecting Shannon, and he was best friends with her brother Jay.

“Shannon stopped being ‘Jay’s little sister’ around 1991. I graduated from Fisher in 1992 and attended LSU the following fall. Shannon graduated in 1994 and joined me there,” Ricky said.

The two were married in Lafitte in December of 1995 and already knew they wanted a family.

“We tried for some time before Rickey III was conceived,” Ricky said, but despite warning about complications, Grace was on her way not long after, and finally Avery, a happy surprise, was born 14 and half months later. At that point, the Mathernes decided their family was complete.

Until Katrina, the couple maintained a home in Lafitte despite their work as certified professional landmen, which took them all over the country. After Katrina, they moved to Slidell, and then to Pennsylvania in 2009 where their family grew again.

“When Avery turned 10, I began to panic about how quickly they were growing up and I knew I wanted to have another baby,” Ricky said.

He jokingly brought the idea up to his wife, and was surprised when she gave it serious consideration.

The two ultimately decided to leave it in God’s hands, and only a month later they were expecting their youngest daughter, Lea.

“She was such a joy,” Ricky said, and while they worried about her not having a sibling close to her own age, they decided that would be it for them.

Fate had other plans however, and nine months after a tumultuous weekend away in New York where nothing went as planned, they welcomed Adam John into their family.

MOM SHANNON AND HER BOY ADAM AFTER HE “DROWNED.”

ADAM BEFORE THE ACCIDENT.

“Adam brought out the best in us all. His personality is infectious. He is the most lovable, happy, and adventurous baby. Watching the relationship develop between AJ and Lea has been one of the most beautiful things I have ever witnessed and it moves me every time I think about it. Our lives weren’t perfect, but our family was,” Ricky said.

He particularly cherishes the daily routine with AJ.

“I would come home from work, and after dinner it was his bath time – his favorite part of the day. I would tickle his belly with my beard while he shrieked with laughter. As soon as I stopped he would uncover his belly and wait until I did it again,” Ricky said.

June 5 threatened to take Adam’s laughter away for good.

AJ’s accident has left their family devastated, but with hope as well. After being rushed to the hospital in Altoona, AJ was flown to Children’s Hospital in Pittsburgh for five weeks, and then went The Children’s Home to begin rehabilitation for the brain injury caused by oxygen deficit.

Eventually the family came full circle, bringing AJ home to Louisiana and Dr. Paul Harch in Marrero, who specializes in hyperbaric oxygen treatments. The treatments are not covered by insurance, but they are accomplishing what the Mathernes were told would never happen.

“On June 5th, our son (clinically) died in my wife’s arms and was dead for 80 minutes before a dedicated team of doctors and God’s mercy brought him back to us,” Ricky said, “We were asked to consider his quality of life. We were told that AJ can’t see, hear, swallow, or recognize us, and that he would never breathe on his own or move meaningfully.”

DAD RICKEY TENDS TO ADAM.

The Mathernes felt differently — literally.

“That was the day he first squeezed our fingers and we choose to give him the time to heal,” he said. “Since then, AJ’s life has been a series of small miracles. He continues to make small steps forward and is currently breathing on his own, focusing with his eyes, moving his body, responding to voices and other stimuli, and most heartwarming, smiling from time to time.”

The fight continues.

Family members set up a GoFundMe account and have held several fundraisers to help Ricky and Shannon pay for the expensive treatments. They call their efforts “Adam’s Hope,” and their motto is ‘With every breath, we hope.” Another event is planned for Sept. 30 at the Jules Nunez Seafood Pavilion at the foot of the bridge in Lafitte. There will be music, food and beer, raffles, prizes, a silent auction, and games.

Ricky said the response has been overwhelming for them and that AJ would never be where he is now without it. They are hopeful that they may be able to purchase a hyperbaric chamber, so that AJ’s progress can continue in their own home.

So far, AJ has completed 15 of 40 planned treatments.

Hope reigns.

“He is our baby. He gets agitated, angry, sad, but he calms when we hold him. We believe that he can experience love and joys and thus lead a meaningful life,” Ricky said. “We will pursue any treatments available that can improve his quality of life.”

White Boy Mows White House Lawn as Trump Beams Approval of Young Entrepreneur

A white boy mowing the White House lawn? But I was told that it takes Mexicans to do yard work because whites are too lazy.

ABC News

President Trump surprised an 11-year-old from Falls Church, Virginia, who had the honor of mowing the Rose Garden lawn today after writing a letter to the president.

The president clapped in approval as he walked toward Frank “FX” Giaccio, who was hard at work cutting the grass. Trump gave Frank a high-five and a pat on the back.

“Future of the country right there, we’re lucky,” Trump said.

Trump then asked Frank what he wants to be when he grows up. Frank’s answer: a U.S. Navy SEAL.

“This is Frank, he’s going to be very famous, he’s going to be a Navy SEAL one day, he’s going to do great things for the country,” Trump said, introducing the young boy to reporters. The president then invited Frank, along with his father, into the Oval Office.

Frank, who considers himself a young entrepreneur, told ABC News he’s a “huge fan” of Trump and that “both mowing the lawn and meeting the president” were the highlights of his day.

Frank also got to meet Vice President Mike Pence and was shown the White House press briefing room.

It was “actually really cool” to be in the Oval Office, Frank told ABC News, adding that he expected the president’s office to be a lot smaller.

It was Frank’s idea to write a letter to the White House earlier this year, asking for the honor to mow the White House lawn and “show the nation what young people like me are ready for.” His dad helped with the final touches and suggested Frank mow the lawn for free when Frank originally wanted to charge the president his “regular price” of $8, Frank said.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders shared Frank’s letter at an August press briefing and announced that the president had accepted his offer. On Wednesday, Sanders confirmed Frank would work with the groundskeeping crew to cut the grass on the Rose Garden lawn.

Three cheers for Frank, his Dad, and the Trump White House.

Canada: Public board​ orders Christian school​ to stop reading ‘offensive’ Bible passages

CORNERSTONE CHRISTIAN ACADEMY.

Homosexuals and Satanists now rule over Christians in Canada. Christian schools cannot legally teach about sin anymore.

Is anyone in Canada willing to go to jail for Christ?

Excerpt from Lifesite News

CAMROSE, Alberta, June 14, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – A Canadian Christian school has been ordered by a public school board that it partners with to refrain from reading or studying “any scripture that could be considered offensive to particular individuals.” Included are passages from the New Testament that speak against fornication, adultery, idolatry, and witchcraft.

Cornerstone Christian Academy (CCA) in Kingman, Alberta, has been ordered by the Battle River School Division (BRSD) to refrain from reading or studying portions of the Bible that the board says might contravene Alberta’s human rights legislation.

The Christian school was incorporated in 1986 as a ministry of Cornerstone Evangelical Baptist Church. It belongs to the Association of Christian Schools International​ while also partnering with the BRSD. According to its website, parents in Camrose and nearby towns send their children to the Christian school because it integrates Bible study into the approved provincial curriculum. Formerly a private school, it joined the school division in 2009. It serves about 180 students.

In its vision statement, the school states that “students will have a good working knowledge of the Bible as a foundation to their education.”

“Cornerstone Christian Academy offers a program that integrates faith, life, and learning. At its foundation is the Christian Bible, the belief that God is central to our humanity, that Jesus Christ is our personal Saviour and Lord, and God’s Holy Spirit is present and at work in the world today,” the school states.

The public school board trustees will meet this Thursday, June 15 to discuss the Bible verses they found to be offending in the school’s parent-student handbook. Some of the Bible passages formerly in the handbook included warnings against lifestyle choices that Christians consider sinful. Two passages were:

Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies.

While the school has already agreed to drop the “offending” passages from the handbook, the school board has taken their demands up a notch. The board is now telling the school that it must remove the passages from anywhere in the school too.

The school board’s Diane Hutchinson said trustees think these verses might contravene Alberta’s human rights legislation.

Even if you’re not much of a believer in the Bible, are you a defender of freedom of speech. The left says that “hate speech” (the Bible) must not be tolerated.

JACKBOOTS. QUEER TYRANNY.

How long until Leviathan mandates that parents raise their children as “gender fluid?” How long until “Be Gay for a Day” is required of all children?

Canada is sickening. The United States isn’t much better.l

Remember When America Looked Like This?

Almost every family had children and all the children had bikes. And there was usually a dog lurking around somewhere, ready to go running off on a big romp with the kids.

I surmise this picture was taken on the Fourth of July because of the red, white, and blue decorations on the bike wheels.
