    In addition to requesting the a change of venue for the trial, attorneys for the parents of accused school shooter Ethan Crumbley have submitted a list of topics they say the jury shouldn’t hear about. James Crumbley, Jennifer Crumbley. (Oakland County Sheriff’s Office via AP, File) Oakland County Sheriffs Office via AP In a motion filed May 23 in Oakland County Circuit Court, attorneys Shannon Smith and Mariell Lehman said a change of venue is necessary because of the number of county residents affected by the Oxford High School shooting and because of “pervasive negative coverage of the cases.” James and Jennifer Crumbley each face four counts of involuntary manslaughter, accused of negligence that resulted in their 15-year-old son having access to the 9mm handgun believed to have been used in the November 2021 shooting that left four dead and several others wounded in Oxford, Michigan. Ethan Crumbley is charged with 24 felonies including murder and terrorism causing death. Smith and Lehman said the Crumbley parents are “receiving far worse treatment in the court of public opinion than the actual shooter.”...
    The horrific impacts of fast fashion on the environment are no secret. By producing apparel and garments, massive amounts of greenhouse gas emissions enter the atmosphere, water sources are depleted, and carcinogenic chemicals, dyes, salts, and heavy metals are dumped into waterways. Shein, one of the largest online shopping companies in the world is releasing 700 to 1,000 new products a day. Estimates suggest the company is producing a whopping 35,000 to 100,000 articles of clothing every single day. On top of that, consumers throw away about 60% of the clothes that they buy within the same year, said care2.  Source: DW Planet A/Youtube The volume of textiles in US landfills has nearly doubled over the past two decades, and Shein is contributing tremendous waste, says Wired. The fashion industry produces 20 percent of global wastewater and 10 percent of global carbon emissions. Shein’s business model depends on a degree of relentless consumption and waste. Sign this petition to demand that Shein take responsibility and prioritize sustainability!

    DAVIS (CBS13) — UC Davis students have voted and they want to change the school’s mascot from a horse to a cow. But it’s not a done deal – at least, not yet. READ MORE: Key Lawmaker Warns At UFO Hearing: 'Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Are A Potential National Security Threat'Gunrock, the current mascot, has been around for nearly a century. But the group of undergrads behind the Cow4Mascot campaign say a cow will create more school spirit. “Because with the pandemic, there was a lot of school spirit that I think UC Davis lost because almost half the campus – half the student body – was never on campus. And I think our motivation here was creating something interesting, creating a talking point, something we can all get behind,” said Mick Hashimoto, the Cow4Mascot campaign organizer.

    A New Jersey high school will remove President Woodrow Wilson from its name over complaints it perpetuates racism.  The Camden School District voted on the decision 18 months ago, but due to COVID-19 priorities, the process to pick a new name had been postponed until now. High contenders to have the school named after them include former President Barack Obama, late civil rights activist and Representative John Lewis, and a superintendent who recently passed away.  Initially, a 100-members committee composed of parents and school officials had been chosen to complete the task, but the district informed that the process will start anew with a 10-person committee, NJ.com reported. Woodrow, a Nobel Peace Prize winner, once governor of New Jersey and the 28th president of the United States, led the country into war to 'make the world safe for democracy.'  However, upon reexamination of his legacy after 2020's summer of racial unrest, he has been heavily criticized for promoting the Klu Klux Klan and Confederacy sentiments, and racially re-segregating the federal civil service.  The school has borne his name since its establishment, 90...

    Virginia’s T.C. Williams High School, made famous by the feature film Remember the Titans starring Denzel Washington, is dumping its 56-year-old name over ties to racism. When the school opened in 1965, it was named after former school superintendent Thomas Chambliss Williams, a strict segregationist during the 1930s. The school has long criticized its namesake, and on its website, the school system says that Williams and his history “could not have been more inconsistent with the vibrant, diverse and inclusive place we know today.” The site adds that Williams “did everything possible to slow down the process of integration in Alexandria.” And the district has debated changing the name for some time. The school came to national attention when the school integrated in the 1970s and went on to have a winning football team that helped to unite the community. The history of the school became the topic of a hit film in the year 2000. In November, a unanimous vote was held, giving the district the go-ahead to change the school’s name, kicking off a campaign to pick a...

The district sent out a statement on Tuesday, acknowledging the messages it has received and conversations on social media about changing the name.

'I wanted to let you know that the Hey Reb! statue in front of the Tam Alumni Center was taken down this evening,' read Meana's statement.
