    Seventeen members of the University of Virginia’s faculty wrote an op-ed in the school’s student newspaper Tuesday slamming its editorial board for attempting to pressure the administration into banning former Vice President Mike Pence from speaking on Grounds. The Cavalier Daily‘s editorial board recently penned a piece claiming Pence was “dangerous” and threatened student safety. “We as an Editorial Board found ourselves questioning what should be protected under the premise of ‘diversity of thought’ and more importantly, what values we choose to accept on Grounds,” they wrote. “For us, the answer is simple. Hateful rhetoric is violent — and this is impermissible.” [Emphasis added]. But some faculty still believe “free speech is a fundamental … value” at Thomas Jefferson’s University. “We are not interested in either defending or attacking Pence and whatever he might say,” the professors, spanning nine different departments, wrote. “We are more concerned that The Cavalier Daily believes that his speech constitutes ‘violence” that ‘threatens the well-being and safety of students on Grounds.'” “This speech-is-violence argument is not only wrong — no calls for violence will be issued...
    Faculty members at the University of Virginia slammed its student newspaper on Tuesday for failing to understand the principles of free speech after it called for former Vice President Mike Pence not to be allowed to speak on campus. Pence is scheduled to appear next Tuesday. But the editorial board  of The Cavalier Daily triggered a furore by last month calling for his invitation to be rescinded on the grounds that 'hateful rhetoric is violent.'  Now, members of faculty have weighed in by saying it was simply wrong to say that a speech could threaten the wellbeing of students. 'This speech-is-violence argument is not only wrong — no calls for violence will be issued April 12 — but also contradicts the letter and the spirit of the First Amendment, which generally creates space for a wide range of views to be expressed so long as the relevant speech does not incite violence,' said the letter signed by 17 senior members of staff. 'It is also a disservice to those who are the victims of actual physical violence — whether those...
    Apparently not. According to White House press secretary Jen Psaki, it was because of what Biden saw on TV — just like everybody else. A reporter pressed Psaki about the president's seemingly premature decision to label Putin "war criminal," which is a significant designation. "The Russian actions in Ukraine are under close scrutiny for potential war crimes, but today President Biden directly labeled Putin today a 'war criminal.' Has something changed in the administration's assessment?" the reporter asked. "What brought this new remark from the president?" Psaki replied, "The president's remarks speak for themselves. He was speaking from his heart and speaking from what he's seen on television — which is barbaric actions by a brutal dictator."

    Two right-wing Republicans who were part of the Trump Administration have recently been speaking out against former President Donald Trump: William Barr and John Bolton. But conservative Daily Beast opinion columnist Matt Lewis isn’t impressed. In his March 4 column, the Never Trump journalist argues that they should have spoken out a lot sooner. “Better late than never?” Lewis writes. “Donald Trump’s former attorney general, Bill Barr, and former national security adviser, John Bolton, are back in the news this week, saying things that — to paraphrase Adam Sander in ‘The Wedding Singer’ — could have been brought to our attention yesterday!” Lewis continues, “By ‘yesterday,’ I mean any time when it might have mattered more. Like during an impeachment, like during an election — you know, a time when hearing the truth from someone with inside knowledge and credibility might have made a difference. Instead, both waited until they were hawking books to spill the Administration’s tea.” During his months as U.S. attorney general under Trump, Barr — who had previously held that position in the early 1990s under...

    A Democratic representative has blasted members of his own party for using the term 'Latinx' to describe people of Latin American descent. Ruben Gallego, a representative from Arizona, tweeted his dismay with the term on Monday, after a poll was released showing just 2 percent of Latinos recognize the term 'Latinx' while 40 percent feel offended by it. 'To be clear, my office is not allowed to use "Latinx" in official communications,' wrote Gallego, who is of Columbian and Mexican descent. 'When Latino politicos use the term, it is largely to appease white rich progressives who think that is the term we use,' he continued. 'It is a vicious circle of confirmation bias.'  The term was coined by left-wing academics and activists as a gender-neutral term to include non-binary people in the Spanish-speaking community. It has since spread among the general public, but has become controversial among the Spanish speaking community, who argue it does not follow the rules of the language. 'Look y'all,' Gallego wrote in a subsequent tweet. 'Hispanic, Latin American are gender neutral. So we already have...
    Middlesex Head of School, David Beare (pictured) notes that the school has 'utmost respect' for Hannah-Jones and apologized that they 'did not reach out in a more formal way to express our appreciation for her professional achievements and contributions to the field and discuss the situation with her' The head of a $70,000-a-year Ivy League feeder school in New England is taking a leave of absence after facing backlash over a decision to cancel a diversity symposium speech by 1619 project creator and New York Times journalist Nikole Hannah-Jones.  The news comes after David Beare, the head of Middlesex School in Concord, Massachusetts, last week disinvited Hannah-Jones from speaking on campus due to the 'noise' her presence would create.

Remini left Scientology in 2013.  She told Daily Blast Live on Tuesday that Prepon, 41, could have used her platform to help others who are struggling to leave.  Remini told the outlet she "reached out" to Prepon but that "not everybody who has a voice uses it."

    Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, D., continued to defend her controversial decision to only speak with non-White reporters earlier this year, calling the number of the journalists of color covering her "unacceptable" and declaring she'd do it again because of the conversation it spurred.

    More On: artificial intelligence Amazon to extend pause on police use of facial recognition US banks deploy AI to monitor customers, workers amid tech backlash Man found in Hudson River identified as cryptocurrency mathematician Microsoft reportedly in talks to buy AI firm Nuance for about $16B LOS ANGELES, May 19 – Bad lip-syncing in dubbing and subtitles can put off audiences and hurt box office takings of foreign films. AI may be about to change all that. Start-up Flawless AI, co-founded by film director Scott Mann, has a tool that it says can accurately recreate lip sync in dubbing without altering the performance of the actors. The tool studies how actors move their mouths and swaps the movements out according to the dubbed words in different languages, making it seem like Tom Hanks can speak Japanese or Jack Nicholson is fluent in French. Mann was inspired to come up with the tool when he saw how dubbing affected the narrative cohesion of his 2015 film “Heist,” starring Robert De Niro. “I hate dubbing as it stands,” he told Reuters. “You have to change so...

Angie Yen, who was born in Taiwan but raised in Australia, was shocked to realise her accent suddenly changed as she sang in the shower eight days after the surgery. Scientist Karl Kruszelnicki said the condition - Foreign Accent Syndrome, which has been recorded about 100 times in history - was likely caused by a brain disorder.

The other side to it, too, is when they, in fact, move out of Georgia, the people who need the help the most, people who are making hourly wages, sometimes get hurt the most.

Ted Cruz, R-Texas, told "Hannity" Tuesday.  "They hate Donald J. Trump and they are engaging in an act that I think is petty retribution and that is vindictive and a waste of time," Cruz told host Sean Hannity, adding, "and so I think it’s time to move on." Cruz told "Hannity" he heard the 46th president call for unity in his inaugural address, but Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., must not have gotten the message. "Unfortunately, congressional Democrats weren't listening to a word he said," Cruz said of Biden. "And the very first step that they took is to charge down the road of a partisan and divisive and angry impeachment trial." VideoTurning to the impeachment itself, Cruz argued the House's action "doesn't meet the constitutional standard. "They didn't pretend to follow due process, they didn't have hearings, they didn't pretend to look at any facts or any evidence," he said. "This was an exercise in political rage. It was their id speaking ... look, these...

    President Trump on Saturday will tell supporters in Pennsylvania that they have the chance to “save the American dream” by reelecting him to office on Tuesday -- while warning of “corrupt forces” who are seeking to replace him with Democratic nominee Joe Biden. “This is the state where the story of American Independence began – it is the state where the American Constitution was signed – and three days from now this is the state that will save the American Dream,” he will say, according to prepared remarks. ELECTION DAY 3 DAYS AWAY: TRUMP, BIDEN BARNSTORM SWING STATES  The Trump campaign is billing the speech as the beginning of Trump’s closing argument for Pennsylvania -- a key swing state that could decide the election and that went for Trump in 2016. In his address, he is expected to touch on themes of self-governance, presenting the election as a choice between a “corrupt political class” or government by the people. He will accuse Biden of profiting “from the misery he unleashed on Pennsylvania workers” by supporting “disastrous” trade deals -- while...
    Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett on Tuesday defended her decision to speak before a Christian student group on numerous occasions, telling senators she was invited and thought it would be “fun to talk about the Constitution.” “I have several other colleagues who had participated in the Blackstone program lecturing. I heard great things about it from then. We had a contingent of students from Notre Dame regularly attend this program, and they were among our most engaged and smartest students, and I went and did it. The first time I did it, I really enjoyed it, the students were very, very engaged.” Barrett added: “I would go and just give a lecture on a originalism that was one hour — Blackstone is a summer-long program. So I went and gave my one-hour lecture at the beginning of it, and I really thought it was fun to talk about the Constitution to an engaged group of students. It was fun for someone who is a law professor.” Barrett spoke five times beginning in 2011 to students participating in the...
    By JILL COLVIN, Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) — Elizabeth Neumann wrestled with the decision for weeks. She worried about the backlash, the impact it would have on her career, potential threats to her family. But the former Department of Homeland Security official, who had resigned in April, reached a breaking point after President Donald Trump deployed Homeland Security agents to Portland, exacerbating tensions there. She decided it was worth the risk to speak out against Trump, whom she had come to view as a threat to the country. “Enough is enough," said Neumann, the former assistant secretary of counterterrorism and threat prevention. “People need to understand how dangerous a moment we are in.” There are plenty of others weighing the same decision. With just weeks left before the Nov. 3 election, now is the moment of truth for current and former Trump administration officials debating whether they, too, should step forward and join the chorus of Republican voices trying to persuade on-the-fence voters to help deny Trump a second term. “It’s now or never," said Miles Taylor, former chief of...

    Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden only condemned the ongoing violence in Kenosha, Wis. and cities across the country this week because he "sees this as a political liability," White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows charged on "The Daily Briefing" Friday. "After 90 days [of] Portland rioting, and ... month after month things have gone on, he's remained largely silent," Meadows told host John Roberts. "In fact, if anything, he's condoned it and said that there should be more of it. The problem that we have is, it's his running mate and people associated with his running mate that actually were bailing people out that got arrested for the rioting that happened in the first place. So, it's typical Joe Biden hypocrisy." MINNESOTA GROUP THAT SAW MONEY SURGE, SOME FROM BIDEN STAFFERS, BAILED OUT ALLEGED VIOLENT CRIMINALS: REPORT In an interview with MSNBC Thursday, Biden claimed Trump is "rooting for more violence" and "pouring gasoline on the fire," calling the violence and riots in largely Democratic-run cities a hallmark of "Donald Trump's America."
