The reality: students filled their containers by the end of the week. So every week, donations were delivered to make room for more items. Three days before Thanksgiving, the student body had donated about 2,500 canned goods to the Helping Hands Food Pantry, Gloucester’s Saint Mary Parish and Sacred Heart Parish, Camden.

Obama Unilaterally Rewrites Law, Imposes Transgender Policy on Nation’s Schools

First published here on May 15, 2016 Ryan T. Anderson / @ryantand / May 13, 2016 All across America, parents, teachers and local school districts have been having conversations about how best to accommodate the privacy and safety concerns of transgender students while also addressing the privacy and safety concerns of other students. Solutions were found, such as the creation of new single-occupancy restrooms and changing facilities for transgender students while retaining girls’ and boys’ rooms for biological girls and boys. But activists attacked these commonsense compromise policies as “transphobic.” And now the Obama administration has said that a 1972 law settles all of these issues: Students are to be treated the same based on their “gender identity,” regardless of their sex. Obama’s departments of Justice and Education declared that “both federal agencies treat a student’s gender identity as the student’s sex for purposes of enforcing Title IX.” >>> For... Read more →

Before You Buy An Electric Car Watch This Video

According to the National Fire Protection Agency, most electric vehicles today are powered by lithium-ion batteries. When damaged by something like saltwater, heat, or force, a chemical reaction known as thermal runaway can start inside the cells of these energy-dense batteries. In this state, the batteries heat up uncontrollably and can be prone to fires and off-gassing, resulting in explosions in confined spaces. Compounding the risk of thermal runaway is the fact that there’s no easy way of draining the energy out of damaged batteries—a separate concept known as stranded energy. This is true even after a fire has occurred and been initially extinguished. In 2018, for instance, after a fatal crash and fire involving an electric vehicle in California, the car’s batteries reignited at a junkyard six days later. source: Electric car fires = Firefighter Nightmares. #electric #nightmare #firefighter Read more →
