Chicago Teachers Union Plans To Walk Off Job Over Re-opening Schools…

Via Twitchy:

We’ve done quite a few posts on the Chicago Teachers Union. All the way back in December, the union tweeted that “the push to reopen schools is rooted in sexism, racism and misogyny.” Union members in January refused to go back to the classrooms Monday until the buildings were safe. A couple of weeks later, the union voted to teach from home Monday rather than return to school.

And in a really bizarre twist, teachers a couple of days later posted a video of interpretive dances to “express their desire to feel safe” upon returning to classrooms.

Have they been moved to the front of the line for vaccinations? We’re not sure, but we’d put money on it.

Liberals Have Finally Figured Out It’s Safer To Be Outside In The Sun Than Locked Indoors…

I’ve only been saying this for a year…

Via MSN:

The photos of Clearwater Beach, Fla., went viral last spring: people crowded on the sand, seemingly unconcerned about the deadly new contagion coursing across the world. Local officials, accused of fueling a public health crisis, quickly shut 35 miles of county beaches and left them closed for weeks.

What a difference a year makes. The beaches were even busier this year, but officials say there were no talks of closure. There was also far less outcry.

And with good reason, according to many scientists and public health experts, who say that the outdoor spaces now warming under spring sun should be viewed as havens in the battle against a stubborn virus and restriction-induced fatigue. For more than a year, the vast majority of documented coronavirus clusters have been linked to indoor or indoor-outdoor settings — households, meatpacking plants, nursing homes and restaurants. Near-absent are examples of transmission at beaches and other open spaces where breezes disperse airborne particles, distancing is easier, and humidity and sunlight render the coronavirus less viable.

Russia Calls America An Adversary, Warns Us Away From Crimea…

Via Reuters:

MOSCOW, April 13 (Reuters) – Russia on Tuesday called the United States an adversary and told U.S. warships to stay well away from Crimea “for their own good”, calling their deployment in the Black Sea a provocation designed to test Russian nerves.

Moscow annexed Crimea from Ukraine in 2014 and two U.S. warships are due to arrive in the Black Sea this week amid an escalation in fighting in eastern Ukraine, where government forces have battled Russian-backed separatists in a conflict Kyiv says has killed 14,000 people.

“The United States is our adversary and does everything it can to undermine Russia’s position on the world stage,” Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov was cited as saying by Russian news agencies.

“We do not see any other elements in their approach. Those are our conclusions,” the agencies quoted him as saying.

NH’s Female Gov Pays Off Ex-Spokesman For Sexual Harassment…

Via Yahoo:

Apr. 13—SANTA FE — Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham’s gubernatorial campaign has paid at least $62,500 as part of a settlement with a former staff member who had accused her of sexual mistreatment during a staff meeting, according to documents filed Monday.

The payments went to a law firm representing James Hallinan, a spokesman for Lujan Grisham during her 2018 general election campaign.

The five monthly payments of $12,500 are outlined in a campaign finance report filed late Monday by Lujan Grisham’s campaign with the Secretary of State’s Office. They are listed as legal expenses, with one payment a month from November through March.

It wasn’t clear Monday how many payments might also be made in future months as part of the settlement agreement.

The incident, which reportedly took place before an official event in Rochester in 2015, was recounted to the New York Times Magazine by a Cuomo aide who spoke at the time with Biden, then the nation’s vice president.

Elon Musk’s Brainchips Will Be Implanted In Humans This Year…

Tell Liberals it cures COVID, they’ll believe anything.

Via The-Sun:

The implants built by California-based Neuralink will one day allow those with physical disabilities to control a computer with their thoughts.

The company released a video last week of a brain-chipped monkey apparently playing video games with its mind.

Similar technology could make its way to human test subjects by the end of the year if the start-up meets a previous prediction from Musk.

The billionaire Tesla boss tweeted in February: “Neuralink is working super hard to ensure implant safety & is in close communication with the FDA.

“If things go well, we might be able to do initial human trials later this year.”
