The email sent on September 14, encourages cadets to apply to the program, which states: 'If you are a cisgender woman, a transgender woman, non-binary, agender, bigender, two-spirit, demigender, genderfluid, genderqueer, or another form of gender minority, this program is for you. 'If you are a cisgender man, this program isn’t for you...but we encourage you to check out our spinoff programs, the Patti Grace Smith Fellowship and the Matthew Isakowitz Fellowship Program.' A concerned Air Force cadet shared the email because, he told Fox News, 'It's a little worrying that we have more briefs about D&I than briefs about foreign adversaries, emerging technologies or current events across the world.'

    Los Angeles residents are getting mixed signals about compost. At the start of this year, Senate Bill 1383 mandated that Californians toss food scraps into their green bins along with garden trimmings, lawn clippings and leaves. But L.A.'s Bureau of Sanitation, which is responsible for collecting your trash, recycling and green waste, only allows residents in its composting pilot program to do so. Westwood resident Toni Smith said she’s confused. Should she toss her food waste into the green bin? Not yet, the city says. She isn’t part of the city’s pilot program, but she wants her food waste to be put to the best possible use. So Smith has looked into electric recyclers that break down food waste into fertilizer, but she doubts she’ll buy one “given the price point and space they require in my kitchen.” She’s leaning toward using Compostable LA, a subscription-based food waste pickup service. “Hopefully, L.A. will get it together soon enough, and residents won’t have to pay for a service for more than a year or so,” Smith...

    Glanton claims that white people "enjoy the opportunities and privileges that white supremacy" provides them. The program urges employees to participate in the "21-Day Racial Equity Habit Challenge" that instructs people to "do one action to further your understanding of power, privilege, supremacy, oppression, and equity." Eddie Moore, Jr, director of the Privilege Institute and the National White Privilege Conference, is credited with creating the "21-Day Racial Equity Habit Challenge." Moore recommends reading articles such as: "The Case for Reparations," The Weaponization of Whiteness in Schools," and "White Privilege: Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack." The challenge suggests websites such as the Antiracism Center, the Transgender Training Institute, and National Center for Transgender Equality. An AT&T spokesperson called the report "misleading," and told the New York Post that City Journal's report is "filled with misinformation and inaccuracies, including the ridiculous claim that we require employees to participate in 'race reeducation' exercises.'" "This is blatantly untrue," the rep said. "We simply provide employees with resources they can use on a voluntary basis to facilitate conversations that are important to them, our customers...
    White employees of AT&T have been told to read an article saying that they are racist, are told to confess to their 'white privilege' and acknowledge 'systemic racism,' and must engage with set texts or else they will be penalized in their performance reviews.  John Stankey, who took over as CEO of AT&T in July 2020, has encouraged his staff to make use of an anti-racism education program entitled Listen Understand Act AT&T, in the aftermath of the George Floyd murder, introduced an internal program called Listen Understand Act. John Stankey, the CEO of AT&T, wrote to the company's 230,000 employees in an April 2021 email, obtained by journalist Christopher Rufo and published on his website. Stankey, who took over as CEO in July 2020, urged his workers to make the most of the resources provided by AT&T's anti-racism portal.  'As individuals, we can make a difference by doing our part to advance racial equity and justice for all,' he wrote.  'If you are looking for tools to better educate and inform yourself on racial equality, resources are available at Listen....

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The effort to create more pollinator gardens across the state is getting additional funding to get more people interested and involved. The Lawns to Legumes program offers up to $300 to cover the cost of planting a pollinator habitat in your yard. It’s one way to be friendly to a population in decline. READ MORE: How Meteorologists Help Battle Blazes Like The Greenwood Fire “They are fun to watch grow and the bees love them, especially the native plants,” said Kerry McIndoo. For the past 10 years, McIndoo has been the keeper of bees. “The more pollinating plants we have in the urban area the better,” McIndoo said. He knows how important these native plants are to the survival of our pollinating friends so he is in favor of any effort to increase the amount of gardens that support them. “Individual residents really can play an important role for pollinators,” said Dan Shaw. Shaw says the grants are one way to get people interested in creating a pollinator habitat in their yard. Up to a $300 dollar...

    Microsoft continues to enhance its gaming strategy in the cloud. The Redmond giant has just announced that Xbox Gaming Cloud (xCloud) is now available on Windows 10. At the moment, yes, it is still in beta phase. In this first stage, Microsoft’s cloud gaming service can be enjoyed from the Windows 10 Xbox app for Insider Program members in the 22 countries in which the service operates.

Of course, a good internet connection becomes an essential requirement for this type of experience in the cloud. Microsoft recommends some 15 Mbps to run the Xbox Cloud Gaming (xCloud) service on Standard Quality, that is, at 720p. If a...
    If you want to feel like an astronaut, and live to the extreme like them, you may be interested in this NASA program. Surely when you were little you dreamed of being an astronaut, stepping on the Moon, going to the Red Planet and even visiting one of the moons of Jupiter or Saturn, but when you got older all these dreams have been shattered, until today. NASA has reported a few hours ago who are looking for men and women for a new plan to send humans to Mars, by 2037. The US Space Agency is looking for “highly motivated people” to participate in the simulation of the surface of Mars for a year in Texas, having to live in a prefabricated module in 3D printing of 157.9 m² called Mars Dune Alpha, and that it is not exactly a hotel. This program will consist of three simulations, the first from 2022, and each will involve up to four crew members where they will have to spend 365 days completely isolated from civilization in this environment that simulates the...

    The Los Angeles Unified School District is preparing to fully reopen campuses for in-person classes on Aug. 16. For parents who do not want to send their child back to campus, an online option is available through the district’s independent study program. Students will be automatically enrolled for in-person class at their school unless they register for independent study by Friday, Aug. 6. Online schooling in LAUSD this school year will be different from the remote learning that began when campuses shut down in March 2020 amid the COVID-19 pandemic. What’s offered for 2020-21 is an online, independent study program run by the district and called the City of Angels school. Students in this program will not be learning from teachers or be online with classmates from only their neighborhood campus. Instead they’ll receive instruction from City of Angels teachers with children throughout their community. The online program is available for transitional kindergarten through 12th grade. As of last week, LAUSD officials said fewer than 1% of students are signed up for online independent study. More...

    Actor Javier Gutiérrez, who is currently starring in the fourth season of fiction I am alive, gave an interview to HuffPost with which he has unleashed the controversial over his opinion on reality TV spots. When asked why he would remove from the small screen, the interpreter has been blunt: “I am bothered by the roughness, the rudeness of television and that it has a lot. Invading private life, right? Well the reality shows It seems to me that they should disappear from the television networks“. In addition, that of Champions I speak of Big Brother, the reality show par excellence: “It causes me to blush, dread, stupor … that there are programs like GH that they reach this country at the twenty-fifth edition, I don’t know which edition it will be in, and that they continue to break audience records and that we continue raising the category of interesting people to types or tipas, without trade or benefit, and that they are icons of young people. That seems very dangerous to me. “ The actor’s blunt statements have...
    What did Congress just pass? The U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday approved a $1.9 trillion COVID relief bill. The measure, called the “American Rescue Plan,” has been the top priority of President Joe Biden since he took office seven weeks ago. It was passed by Democratic majorities in the Senate and the House, with no votes from Republicans. Opponents said the measure is too expensive, will add to the federal deficit and might discourage people from working. Supporters said the historic COVID-19 pandemic and economic struggles, particularly of middle and low-income households who suffered job losses, call for major assistance from the federal government. Biden is expected to sign the bill into law on Friday. I heard everyone gets $1,400. Is that true? It depends on how much you earn. The bill provides a direct payment of $1,400 for a single taxpayer, or $2,800 for a married couple who files jointly, and an additional $1,400 per dependent. So a family of four would receive $5,600. But not everyone gets the money. Married couples with adjusted gross incomes up to...
    New York (CNN Business)More help is coming soon for the millions of Americans struggling to afford high-speed internet at home, which has become essential for school, work and many other areas of life during the pandemic. Congress' December Covid-19 relief bill included $3.2 billion to help low-income Americans pay for broadband service, as the country continues its push toward recovery from the health and economic crisis. Last week, the Federal Communications Commission officially established the Emergency Broadband Benefit program, which will make use of those funds.The program will provide discounts of up to $50 a month, or $75 on Tribal lands, for broadband service for low-income households. It also includes a one-time discount of up to $100 for a laptop, desktop computer or tablet purchased from certain providers, which are yet to be named but are likely to include major wireless network operators, among others. In an April Pew Research survey of American parents with children attending school remotely, 36% of low-income respondents said it was somewhat likely their children wouldn't be able to finish schoolwork because they lacked an...

The Biden administration on Monday announced changes for the pandemic aid program focused on helping small and minority owned firms as well as sole proprietors. For two weeks, starting Wednesday, the Small Business Administration will only accept applications for PPP loans from firms with fewer than 20 employees.

    By MATTHEW KORFHAGE, The Virginian-Pilot VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) — In any 11-course meal, there should perhaps be a little mystery. At Commune restaurant in January, this came courtesy of our server, 16-year-old Carson Poulos. “Does anyone know why bread and butter pickles are called bread and butter pickles?” he called out to the room, apropos of nothing in particular — the dish in front of us at the time was a fried oyster plate of admirable complexity, layered with locally foraged chickweed greens you might recognize from every lawn you’ve ever stepped on. Poulos waited, eyebrows cocked above his mask, with the confidence of someone who had all the answers. He didn’t. He didn’t even have a guess. He was just hoping maybe someone could tell him about the pickles. This wasn’t, as it turns out, an unreasonable expectation. After all, our server was also a student. Since December, Commune’s locations in Norfolk and Virginia Beach have been hosting a series of private dinners that amount to an experiment within an experiment. On the one hand, the Commune X...
