Continue reading the main story The business taps into a formidable coalition of private groups and officials promoting nontraditional forms of public education. The growth of for-profit online schools, one of the more overtly commercial segments of the school choice movement, is rooted in the theory that corporate efficiencies combined with the Internet can revolutionize public education, offering high quality at reduced cost. Instead, a portrait emerges of a company that tries to squeeze profits from public school dollars by raising enrollment, increasing teacher workload and lowering standards. Current and former staff members of K12 Inc. Online schools typically are characterized by high rates of withdrawal. Teachers have had to take on more and more students, relaxing rigor and achievement along the way, according to interviews. Complaints about low pay and high class loads — with some high school teachers managing more than students — have prompted a unionization battle at Agora, which has offices in Wayne, Pa. Some teachers at K12 schools said they felt pressured to pass students who did little work. Teachers have also questioned why some students who did no class work were allowed to remain on school rosters, potentially allowing the company to continue receiving public money for them.

Controversy cultivated online before Milo Yiannopoulos tour starts in Australia
Milo Yiannopoulos speaks during a news conference in New York. AP “Milo Yiannopoulos is coming to Australia in early December but anti-free speech extremists want to stop him from entering the country,” Latham posted on Facebook.

Related Articles Controversial ‘alt-right’ commentator headed to Perth Rebel Media, which hosts Latham’s web-only Mark Latham’s Outsiders website, has been at the centre of a number of scandals linked to the alt-right overseas, including the coverage of the Charlottesville, Virginia protest that left three dead, as well as the MacronLeaks which sought to sway the French elections.

I hadn’t — until the other day. I know this isn’t exactly a pressing matter, but, hey, we are approaching the Christmas season. In the bulletin of a Catholic church I attend, there was a section titled “Christmas Ornaments and their Meanings,” with this about the candy cane: The white symbolizes the purity of Christ. Red stripes remind us of the blood shed by Christ on the cross for us so that we may have eternal life.
The candy cane is formed into a ‘J’ to represent the precious name of Jesus. It also represents the staff of the Good Shepherd. Its hard consistency represents the Solid Rock, the foundation of the church and the firmness of the promises of Christ. So I decided to do a “Google” search on the subject. After typing in the proverbial few key words, a link to a page on the “Urban Legends Reference Pages” site, snopes.
Here’s a snippet of what snopes.

This has changed over the past few decades because of the dramatic advances in digital imaging technologies and computer power. One of the best examples of this was the computer artistry of Ray Downing, whose digital re-creation of Jesus based on the Shroud was documented in “The Real Face of Jesus” program that appeared on the History Channel. In the past few years, digital artists around the world have been able to render their own interpretations of how Jesus may have appeared based on the Shroud and these show up from time to time on the internet.
However, throughout all those years, not one artist has attempted to create an interpretation of what Mary, Mother of Jesus looked like based on the Shroud image. Until now, that is. In July of my good friends Bill and Belenna Lauto directed me to the website of digital artist Dean Packwood in Taupo, New Zealand and shared his beautiful, photorealistic rendition of Mary, Mother of Jesus with me.
Miranti, however, noted that female users existed.
Controversy[ edit ] Anthropologist Helen Fisher in What happens in the dating world can reflect larger currents within popular culture. For example, when the book The Rules appeared, it touched off media controversy about how men and women should relate to each other, with different positions taken by New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd  and British writer Kira Cochrane of The Guardian. Sara McCorquodale suggests that women meeting strangers on dates meet initially in busy public places, share details of upcoming dates with friends or family so they know where they’ll be and who they’ll be with, avoid revealing one’s surname or address, and conducting searches on them on the Internet prior to the date.
Don’t leave drinks unattended; have an exit plan if things go badly; and ask a friend to call you on your cell phone an hour into the date to ask how it’s going. If you explain beautifully, a woman does not look to see whether you are handsome or not — but listens more, so you can win her heart. That is why I advise our boys to read stories and watch movies more and to learn more beautiful phrases to tell girls.
