'Blunt discrimination' by police and 'crisis levels' of racism: A senior U.N. official reflects on America - LA Times
In direct response to that protest, Open Carry Texas carried clocks in favor of Campus Carry. They say students shouldn’t waste their time protesting instead they should focus on getting to class on time.
So you can privately carry a gun at UT. If you disagree with that, you can openly carry a sex toy ("adult" seems a bit redundant). If you disagree with the disagreement, you can openly carry a clock, urging students to get to class on time. I'd try to come up with what's next but I'm terrible at this sort of wordplay.
The college student caught biting a victim's face after stabbing and beating the man and his wife to death in a random attack may have ingested "caustic" chemicals from the couple's garage, Martin County Sheriff Snyder said.
He made a poor decision.
By packing his Carolina Reaper with capsaicinoids, Currie inadvertently concocted a very, very hot pepper. “When you bite into it, the initial taste is sweet. You go, wow, that wasn’t so bad. And then immediately, that vast amount of capsaicin takes over, and it’s kind of like eating molten lava. That’s the best way to put it,” Currie says.
No, it's not the Brazilian diver pepper.
According to reports in Brazilian media, 20-year-old Ingrid Oliveira and 17-year-old Giovanna Pedroso have ended their diving partnership after Oliveira booted the teen out of the room they were sharing at the Olympic Village in Rio so she could enjoy a “marathon sex session” with Brazilian canoeist Pedro Gonçalves.

It's just so . . . tragic.
As politics has become more polarized, the electoral map has changed very little from election to election. But because Trump is such an unusual candidate, it seemed possible there would be states in play this year that usually aren’t. Trump himself said he would compete in deep-blue states like California, New York, Oregon and Washington. So far, however, the 2016 map looks a lot like the 2012 map. Some reliably red and blue states are a tad more competitive this year, relative to the country overall, than in recent elections, but Trump has not reshaped the political landscape. And with Clinton leading Trump nationally by about 7 percentage points, the typically uncompetitive states that seem most likely to flip are red, not blue.
I bet this will go down in history as a moment when the Stupid Party was unaccountably, really, really stupid.
Back in July, Democratic presidential nominee and former
Secretary of State Hillary Clintonsaid, "there is absolutely no connection between anything that I did as secretary of state and the Clinton Foundation.”
On Monday of this week, ABC’s Liz Kreutzer reminded people of that statement, as a new batch of emails reveal that there was a connection, and it was cash. As the emails, recovered by the public-interest law firm
Judicial Watch, demonstrate, people who made donations to the Clinton Foundation got preferential treatment, and access, at the State Department when Hillary was Secretary of State:

"The more a female is bullied by a particular male, the more that male gets to mate her. Sad but true," says Wrangham. "And we know it leads to him having more babies with her."
Clearly chimps need to be introduced to campus gender equality committees.
