With the Congress regrouping and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) trying to gain a toehold in the political landscape of Himachal Pradesh just months before the year-end assembly elections, the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) seems to be banking on “Modi magic” to thwart a bid to oust it from power. The party is planning a huge programme to mark eight years of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government at the Centre. The event is being planned on the historic Ridge at Shimla and among those expected to attend include Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his senior party colleagues. Senior BJP leaders said that apart from chief minister Jai Ram Thakur having met the Prime Minister in this regard, the PM himself was keen because he too began his political journey from Himachal Pradesh as he was in charge of BJP affairs of the hill state for a long time and there would have been no better way to mark the eight years of the party’s government at the Centre. Though the exact date of … [Read more...] about Himachal BJP Banks on ‘Modi Magic’ to Cast A Spell on Voters, Ward Off Rivals ahead of Year-end Polls
It has largely been described as the Miami Heat’s meaningless season finale, often along the lines of “The Miami Heat won six consecutive games to secure the No. 1 playoff seed in the Eastern Conference before losing their meaningless regular-season finale.” It turns out, a month after the fact, the 125-111 April 10 loss to the Orlando Magic at the Amway Center wasn’t so meaningless, after all. Instead, it potentially could stand between the Heat and homecourt advantage in the NBA Finals. With the Heat holding out virtually their entire primary rotation that evening in Orlando, and with the Golden State Warriors later that night defeating the New Orleans Pelicans, the Heat and Warriors closed the regular season with identical 53-29 records. Because Golden State swept the two-game season series, that would mean homecourt advantage for the Warriors in a potential NBA Finals against the Heat. Even though the Heat entered the playoffs as a No. 1 seed. And even though the … [Read more...] about With NBA down to final four, Heat ‘meaningless’ season-ending loss in Orlando could loom large

A popular educator’s blog encouraged teachers to discuss a shooting that took place in Buffalo, New York, with students and blamed the shooting in part on Kyle Rittenhouse, according to a blog post. Co-founder of “Teaching While White” Jenna Chandler-Ward , a white woman, authored a blog post blaming “white silence,” Kyle Rittenhouse, parental rights in education bills, and banning pornographic books for an alleged racially-motivated shooting in Buffalo that took the lives of 10 individuals. The post is titled, “ Responding to Buffalo: Ending White Silence in the Face of Racial Violence .” “[The shooter] was not ‘mentally ill’ or a ‘lone wolf.’ Innumerable white adults either implicitly or explicitly encouraged and supported his thinking and decisions — even his actions,” Chandler-Ward wrote. “When Kyle Rittenhouse, the 18-year-old who shot and killed two people during the unrest last year in Kenosha, Wisconsin, was lauded as a hero by many, and the majority of white adults … [Read more...] about ‘Teaching While White’ Blog Tells Educators Kyle Rittenhouse Is To Blame For Buffalo Shooting
The assault rifle used to kill 10 at a Tops Friendly Market in Buffalo on Saturday is the same model that was used to kill 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary school in Connecticut a decade ago and that was used to kill 10 in sniper attacks in the Washington, D.C., area in 2002. And so we begin the insane cycle again; mass murder followed by calls for a renewed assault weapons ban followed by ineffectual compromise followed by the sale of weapons of war used to perpetrate more domestic carnage. “This is my Bushmaster XM-15,” Payton Gendron , the 18-year-old suspect in the Buffalo massacre apparently wrote below a photo of the gun in a pre-attack manifesto. “That’s right, I used the dread military grade assault rifle as my main firearm for this attack.” The killer in Buffalo further echoed the Sandy Hook horror by writing in his manifesto of taping together two magazines for fast reloading. Taped magazines from the school shooting scene were crucial … [Read more...] about How Many More Mass Murderers Will Use This Assault Rifle?
