    • you gotta be kidding...

      The College Board, which oversees the SAT standardized exam used by most U.S. colleges during the admissions process, plans to introduce an “adversity score” for every student taking the test, The Wall Street Journal reports. The new number will be calculated based on 15 factors ranging from local poverty levels and crime rates to the student’s family background. The students will not be shown this score, but it will be included in the results sent by the SAT examiners to the schools a student applies to.

      trump to sweden: i will personally vouch for A$AP Rockey's bail.

      sweden to trump: we don't have bail.
      Outstanding, I watched the video, Rockey did everything he could to avoid confrontation. The kid appears to be a Muslim young male with language issues, his friends did not help as he was repeatedly asked to walk away - instead he was a stalker. Don't mind me, I was just paying attention to the news.
      Be wise enough to walk away from the nonsense around you! :thumbup:

    • Jeffrey Epstein, the millionaire financier and accused sex trafficker, is dead by apparent suicide, according to three officials familiar with the matter.

      The officials told NBC News that Epstein was found at 7:30 a.m. ET at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York, a federal jail in Manhattan, and that he apparently hanged himself.

      gotta ask the obvious...erotic asphyxiation?

      It was reported that he was supposed to be checked on approximately every 3 hrs and that the last scheduled time was 5am. EMT was called at 6:30am to assist a prisoner in "distress". He was transferred to the hospital and pronounced at 7:30am.

      I'm glad you said apparent because many people are finding this to be VERY suspicious.

      Considering the track record of the crowd he ran with that didn't want more publicity on this, I would take the over on foul play.

      When this guy was arrested my wife and I both said he'd never stand trial, someone on the Blacklist would kill him before he could rat on people in power, would be interesting to know who all he had dirt on.
