Nbc4 arent you worried about upsetting parents @alittlecoconuttart

NBC4: “Aren’t you worried about upsetting parents and young women?”

Justin Miller, OSU senior: “No not at all, like I said our motives were not to insult or look down on anyone, not to be sexist. Our motive is just to have fun, it is college.”

Alex Sheets, roommate, also a senior: “People have been saying we are misoginis[sic], we are sexist, we are degrading towards women. My dad he is a good Christian man, I am a good Christian man, but we just do this for fun. We are not trying to cause any havic[sic] or stir up any trouble, we are just trying to have some fun.”

“I only break out the red pen on special occasions. So when I saw Marco Rubio’s recent op-ed on Net Neutrality, you know I couldn’t resist. It is intentionally misleading, poorly researched, and littered with errors.”–Rep. Mark Takano (D-CA)

Urgent dont let congress take away abortion @alittlecoconuttart

URGENT: Don’t Let Congress Take Away Abortion Coverage

The latest threat to women’s access to safe and legal abortion is one step closer to becoming law. We have to stop it, and stop it now.

The House of Representatives is voting today on the so-called “No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act” — a bill that would make it nearly impossible for women to access insurance coverage that includes abortion.

Tell the House of Representatives to stay out of women’s private medical decisions and vote NO on this dangerous bill.

First insulin pump this photo is one of the @alittlecoconuttart

“First Insulin Pump: This photo is one of the first prototypes of an insulin pump in the late ‘60s. It consisted of a large backpack and tubing inserted much like an IV. Home blood testing units were also made available during this period.”

“Fleeing the Fire”

Driven to the brink by fires and scorching temperatures during the 9/11 attacks, people near the top of the World Trade Center’s north tower hang from windows as high as 1,300 feet (400 meters) above the streets of New York City.

Such images were extremely controversial ten years ago but have since become more accepted—if no less disturbing, Chanin said.

“I think one of the things that’s happened is that we recognize one way to represent the depravity at the core of the motivation for the attacks is by showing the people who were caught above the impact and the choices that they were confronted with at the ends of their lives. I think that’s become an essential part of the story.”

In a split decision and over a vigorous dissent @alittlecoconuttart

“In a split decision, and over a vigorous dissent authored by Justice Ginsburg, the Court held that privately owned for-profit businesses are entitled to exemptions from the Contraceptive Mandate of the Affordable Care Act if their owners claim a religious basis for opposing contraception. As a result, employers with religious objections can deny employees access to insurance covering prescription contraception without co-pay. The Supreme Court based its decision on the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA), which provides that a law that burdens a person’s religious beliefs must be justified by a compelling government interest. Today the Court made clear it does not view Americans’ access to medically necessary health care as a compelling government interest, and announced loud and clear that the religious preferences of employers take preference over the health needs of workers.” (Supreme Court: Your Boss’s Religion Trumps Your Health” [Fidalgo 2014])

Article excerpt whats in a t shirt turns out @alittlecoconuttart

[Article excerpt]

What’s in a T-shirt? Turns out, quite a lot.

Using little more than the shirts on their backs, award-winning Canadian band A Tribe Called Red just sent a bold message: Native Americans aren’t here for your entertainment.

The shirt is part of the continuing controversy over the use of Native American imagery for the logos of professional sports teams like the Washington Redskins. Simultaneously sarcastic and witty, the shirt — a play on Chief Wahoo and the Cleveland Indians logo —  draws attention to franchise names and mascots that demean Native Americans while simultaneously lampooning the creators and perhaps the most vocal supporters of such team mascots: Caucasians.

Sadly, the backlash to the band’s creative statement has already begun, as music festivals across Canadahave reportedly been flooded by emails calling for A Tribe Called Red’s removal from the lineup. In an ironic twist, many of these critics claim that the t-shirt is “racist” against white people. 

Let’s be very clear. Contrary to popular belief, there is no such thing as “reverse” racism.

Rochester radio hosts mock transgender people in @alittlecoconuttart


The city of Rochester, New York announced this week that it would be adding transgender health benefits for employees and their families in the city medical plan.

The Democrat & Chronicle reported: “Under the new coverage, effective Jan. 1, city employees will be eligible to receive services related to gender reassignment surgery, such as medical and psychological counseling, hormone therapy and cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries.”

That news caught the eye of 98.9 ‘Breakfast Buzz'morning radio hosts Kimberly and Beck who took the opportunity to unleash a torrent of mockery upon trans people during a sarcastic 12-minute segment in which they cackled about genitalia and insulted a caller who dialed in to tell them how offensive they were.

Some of the choice quotes (although you really must listen to the audio, AFTER THE JUMP…)

“Transgender or gender nonconforming. What the hell does that mean? Like you’re not a woman or a man??

"The dude can look like a lady and the city is going to pay for it!” (cue “Dude Looks Like a Lady” music)

“Does that mean then if women want a boob job they’ll pay for a boob job because that’s only right.”

“The services that will be paid for under the new coverage - gender reassignment surgery, PSYCHOLOGICAL COUNSELING, because you’re probably a NUTJOB to begin with!”

“It’s a slippery slope. Then if some woman can go to a doctor and it’d be proven that she’s got mental issues because her rack’s not big enough then you know what? she deserves a boob job, Right Kimberly? Or she deserves liposuction.”

“Right, IF YOU CAN PROVE YOU’RE A NUT, I guess.”

Kimberly and Beck then go on to discuss female trans athletes, including one at a local school, and how they should definitely not be able to play sports…

“When he steps up to the plate, doesn’t he have two bats?”

Finally, a woman calls in to tell them “it’s incredibly disrespectful towards transgender people. Please don’t spread any misinformation especially when you’re joking about it.”

One of the hosts replies: “Thank you, SIR” as the others laugh.

My brother was going through some of his old school papers today and came across this gem.

Don’t mess with the bull, young man, you’ll get the horns. (Or chain, as it were.)

Though it appeared to messier to be fuzzy and @alittlecoconuttart

Though it appeared to Messier to be fuzzy and round and without stars, Messier 5 (M5) is now known to be a globular star cluster, 100,000 stars or more, bound by gravity and packed into a region around 165 light-years in diameter.” (Nasa releases spectacular image of ancient star cluster: A beautiful image showing a sparkling jumble of stars has been released from the Hubble Space Telescope” [Siebert 2014])

Article excerpt heres the real story behind @alittlecoconuttart

[Article excerpt]

“Here’s the Real Story Behind That ‘Marijuana-Changes-Your-Brain’ Study” (McCutcheon 2014)

Research is full of nuance, and nuance sometimes gets lost in the conversation. The collective freakout over this study had to do with its findings: Certain regions of the brain of people who smoke marijuana are structurally different than people who don’t. That got interpreted, at least in headlines and ledes, as marijuana changes your brain.

“The conclusions were modest in the paper — we never say marijuana causes these changes,” Gilman said, who’s a neuroscientist with a Ph.D. from Brown University. “The media may have given that impression in headlines, but the study doesn’t show causation.”

It was a classic A and B study. Take group one and see how they’re different from group two. That’s it.
