    A FORMER police chief said the controversial "Purge law" will put people's lives at risk and doesn't want it used as a social experiment for bail reform. The Illinois law includes a state-wide end to cash bail starting January 1, 2023 and a provision that prevents cops from searching for missing offenders until 48 hours after they're in violation. 3Former Riverside, Illinois Police Chief Tom Wietzel said he doesn't want his state to be a social experiment for ending cash bailCredit: Supplied 3llinois' SAFE-T Act has been nicknamed 'The Purge law' on social media after the movieCredit: Alamy Both changes are part of sweeping, justice-reform law called the SAFE-T Act (Safety, Accountability, Fairness and Equity-Today), which social media has referred to as "The Purge law." One hundred of Illinois' 102 county prosecutors opposed the bill, and police were never consulted before it passed, former Riverside Police Chief Tom Wietzel told The U.S. Sun. "We told them this wasn't a good idea," said Wietzel, who retired in May 2021 after nearly four decades in law enforcement that included surviving a shotgun blast...

    Scientists inadvertently bred a horde of unusually aggressive hamsters after a gene editing experiment to 'reduce aggression' went wrong. Researchers at Georgia State University produced new rodents without hormone vasopressin in an effort to raise 'social communication' between the rodents. Yet the chemical change turned the Syrian hamsters wild, prompting fights inside cages. The ultra-vicious hamsters were pictured pinning, biting and chasing each other. The scientists shared images of the genetically modified hamsters going at it in their cages Hamsters are typically social animals with low levels of aggression and an ease of cooperation Lead researcher Professor Elliott Albers said: 'We anticipated [...] we would reduce both aggression and social communication — but the opposite happened.' They key hormone Avpr1a was thought to regulate friendship and bonding, with its removal expected to increase harmony between the animals. Instead, the lab experiment recorded 'high levels of aggression towards other same-sex individuals'. Professor Albers said: 'We were really surprised at the results.' It was thought that vasopressin affects the social behaviours of hamsters including aggression and communication. CRISPR is a gene editing technique in which scientists...
    Fox News' Tucker Carlson found himself at the center of a social experiment gone terribly wrong. The result of his blunder led to widespread mocking on Twitter. On Monday, May 9, Carlson attempted to a “mob” of demonstrators protesting abortion rights but his viewers may have gotten more than even he bargained for. Per HuffPost: Carlson told his audience, "he was about to broadcast 'live pictures' of a protest outside the home of Supreme Court Associate Justice Samuel Alito, author of a leaked draft opinion that, if issued, would overturn Roe v. Wade. Carlson noted that this was 'what it looks like when you write an opinion the mob doesn’t like.'” Instead of capturing a so-called "mob" on camera, one woman became the focal point. At one point during the brief segment, she actually gave Carlson the middle finger. While it remains unclear if the woman knew she was being featured on Fox News, Twitter users did not pass up the opportunity to slam Carlson. One user wrote, "I think Tucker has more brains in his arse, than you...
    Houston saw a sharp spike in violent crime during 2021, enduring a nearly 20% spike in murders as the crime surge across the nation continues.  Rania Mankarious, CEO of Crime Stoppers of Houston, and Adrian Medina, whose mother was allegedly killed by a repeat criminal suspect out on bond last year, joined "Fox & Friends First" to discuss how bail changes have affected Texas' biggest city.  TEXAS' LARGEST COUNTY SEES MORE THAN 150 KILLED BY SUSPECTS OUT ON BONDS, VICTIMS GROUP SAYS "What we're seeing is an assault against the community for the sake of a negligent social experiment," Mankarious told Kevin Corke.  "We've got to start to bring balance back, bring risk assessments back into courtrooms, have judges that care about public safety and not a gender political ideology."

              moreby Logan Dubil   MeAnna Durham’s tabling stunt went viral Oct. 26 when the Michigan State University student set up a display on campus providing free masks to classmates, but charging White students $10 for the protective equipment. The sign read: “Free masks and gloves for MINORITIES ONLY!! $10 PER ITEM for White People!!” Durham told The Morning Watch, a student-run newspaper at the university, that her display, which was taken down within 24 hours, was for her Experimental Design class and met with the professor’s approval. “So the point of this project is to demonstrate how minorities and disabled persons have been negatively impacted by the pandemic versus other groups. I wanted to reverse the privilege and show how it feels to be discriminated against based off skin or disability,” Durham tweeted that day. Campus Reform spoke with students at the public university about Durham charging White students money for the masks. Matthew Bauerle, a graduate student, said he was confused about what the project was trying to prove. “An explicit goal was to get people to say ‘what if it...
    Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) warns the U.S. military’s focus is misappropriated under Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin during an appearance on FNC’s “The Ingraham Angle.” Hawley’s remarks about the country’s military preparedness come as the U.K. Royal Marines made quick work of U.S. troops during a training exercise. “Well, they are probably wondering why it is the people like General Milley and Secretary Austin spend so much time recommending books on white rage, on Critical Race Theory and are not more focused on warfighting,” he said. “Here’s my view, Laura. We’ve got the best soldiers, airmen, marines in the entire world. Our soldiers are amazing warfighters. Let them fight. Train the tight. Let them do what they do best and stop using the military as a giant social experiment, which is what the left seems to want.” The Missouri Republican warned the threat from China was not being taken seriously as the military brass were focused on “left-wing pursuits.” “I have to say that General Milley has been pretty darn casual...
    Republican Sen. Josh Hawley on Thursday accused the Pentagon of preparing U.S. armed forces for culture wars rather than real wars after their humiliating 'defeat' against British Royal Marines in a training exercise. U.S. forces had to ask for a 'reset' halfway through the five-day mock battle in the Mojave Desert as they took heavy simulated losses. It comes with the Pentagon already under intense scrutiny, following the hurried withdrawal from Afghanistan and Taliban takeover.  And this week the US Navy fired a nuclear submarine's commanding Officer, executive Officer and chief of the boat for after their vessel collided with an 'uncharted seamount' in the South China Sea.  Hawley said competitors such as China would be baffled by the U.S. approach. 'They're probably wondering why it is that people like General Milley and Secretary Austin spend so much time recommending books on white rage, on critical race theory and are not more focused on warfighting,' he told the 'Ingraham Angle' on Fox News. Sen. Josh Hawley (l) accused the Pentagon and Gen. Mark Milley (r) of pushing a woke agenda that left...
    A longtime consulting architect at UC Santa Barbara has quit in protest over a massive proposed dormitory he slammed as a “social and psychological experiment.” The $1.5-billion project, dubbed Munger Hall, is the brainchild of billionaire Berkshire Hathaway Vice Chairman Charlie Munger, who donated $200 million toward the plan in 2016. The dorm could house more than 4,500 students, a huge relief on a campus that ran so short of housing this fall it temporarily put up students in hotels. But the plusses are not enough to merit the support of Dennis McFadden, a Los Angeles architect and a member of UC Santa Barbara’s design review committee for more than a decade. “In the nearly fifteen years I served as a consulting architect to the DRC, no project was brought before the committee that is larger, more transformational and potentially more destructive to the campus as a place than Munger Hall,” McFadden wrote in an Oct. 24 letter to the committee co-chairs. The 11-story, 1.68-million-square-foot building would include rooms occupied by up to eight students, many in interior spaces....

    Twitter is exploring an option that allows you to vote against replies to tweets, so that only the most interesting reactions appear above. But an interesting tool on paper can lead to insufficient procedures. In the future, Twitter may categorize responses under a different post chronologically. The American company has actually conducted a test, which arranges the answers based on their success. This reputation will be limited by the number of unfavorable votes received. We seem to have more in the list of answers because we have less. The existence of the experiment was discovered by Michael Donohue on Twitter on October 12, when he woke up and shared a screen shot. Down the arrow we see a new small icon in a circle, as well as a window explaining the approach of the social network. It has been mentioned that the test cannot be viewed by the count of receiving unfavorable votes or made public elsewhere.

    EL PASO, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) — A 30-year-old Texas mother has been arrested and charged after she performed a ‘social experiment’, successfully sneaking into a middle school dressed as her teenaged daughter. Casey Garcia says she recorded and posted video of herself sneaking into the school to test campus security. Garcia, who according to jail records is 4 feet, 11 inches tall and weighs 105 pounds, dyed her hair and used skin tanner before making her way onto the Garcia Enriquez Middle School campus in San Elizario, about 20 miles southeast of El Paso. The mother said she provided her daughter’s ID number, was asked if she had signed in and was allowed into the building. Video posted on social media shows Garcia — who was wearing a face mask — entering the school, greeting people in the hallways, and going to different classes. She made it through all of the morning and most of the afternoon before being noticed by a teacher and turning herself in to the principal. In a video she recorded moments before her arrest, Garcia has her...
     A Texas woman has been arrested after posting video of herself posing as her 13-year-old daughter and sneaking into the child’s school. She said she did it to highlight security gaps amid mass shootings. Casey Garcia, 30, was booked into the El Paso County Jail on Friday, records show. A YouTube account in her name carries a video in which Garcia–wearing glasses, a yellow Marvel hoodie, and face mask–described herself entering her daughter’s school. “Do I look like a seventh grader?” she said. “No? Cool. Awesome.” Garcia stands 4’11” and weighs 105 pounds, according to online jail records viewed by Law&Crime. Video showed her saying hello to an adult. Superimposed text described him as the principal. “Oh my goodness, I am going to get so caught,” she said. “I am actually really scared now.” Footage showed her receiving directions. Eventually, she showed up to class and sat down. Later, she said she was in gym class. The coach asked her who she was, she said. She gave her daughter’s name, she said. He believed her. Later, she can be...

    Getting kids back into classrooms is essential for their healthy development and well-being, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics. A D.C. neuroscientist explains that it has to do with school being the predominant way kids socialize, and the stressful impacts of social isolation. “In children, when their brain is under stress, or a child is under stress, their brain doesn’t develop properly,” said Joshua Corbin, a professor of pediatrics at Children’s National Hospital. “There’s actually a physiological response with social isolation as a major stressor — the connections in the brain are just not forming properly,” he said. Corbin is a principal investigator at the Center for Neuroscience Research at Children’s National Hospital and has a Ph.D. in neuroscience. The nature and duration of the isolation that kids are experiencing are like none other in modern times. “Even during periods of war, which is obviously a major stressor, in many places schools remain open and children are seeing other children in various contexts,” Corbin said. “It’s not that children are in solitary confinement; that’s not the case, of course....
    AMSTERDAM -- A large group of people gathered Saturday at an arena in Amsterdam to dance, invited by the government as part of a social experiment.The dance was one in a series of experiments conducted by Fieldlab, an initiative set up by the government and the entertainment industry.All 1,300 people at the event were split into five groups with different rules. Some had to wear face masks, while others were encouraged to shout and cheer as much as possible. Everyone was equipped with sensors to monitor how much contact they had with others."I am in a state of great excitement," said DJ Lady Bee who performed at the dance, "It feels almost like normal."The Netherlands is known internationally for its electronic dance music festivals, with industry group Event Maker saying it's an $8 billion industry.

    This subway attack video was apparently staged.  A viral video of a diminutive person dressed in a “Chucky” costume and attacking a maskless straphanger has been revealed to be a planned prank. “Get off f—k off of me — what are doing you?” yells a woman as “Chucky” — the character from horror franchise “Child’s Play” — grabs at her while other train riders watch on. One man eventually dragging Chucky a foot or so across the floor before walking away.  “Somebody help her,” a train passenger screams, but no one else appears to try. Self-described actor, comedian and influencer Miguel told the Daily Dot that the incident was not, in fact, a bizarre and random assault by a maniacal impersonator but a “social experiment,” and the video was taken by Brooklyn-based filmmaker Rodrigo Valencia. Sara, the maskless “Chucky” victim, describes herself as an actress and comedian and was also in on the prank.  The purpose of the stunt was to see if New Yorkers would rise to the occasion and assist a woman being menaced by “Chucky,” Miguel...

    Bradley Cortright January 17, 2021 5 Comments Former Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson hopes President Donald Trump’s presidency will be a cautionary tale for voters going forward. During an interview with CNN’s Fareed Zakaria, Johnson expressed his belief that “history will not view the Trump presidency and those who supported it kindly.” He said that he is holding out hope that the Senate will vote to convict Trump on the charge of “incitement of insurrection.” However, he said that if the Senate does not vote to convict Trump and ban him from holding office, it will be up to the American people to decide — based on what he sees as the failure of the Trump presidency — to reject a potential future presidential bid. “Four years ago, we engaged in a very dangerous experiment by electing someone who was utterly unqualified for office, who had no moral or legal compass and frankly had impulses toward fascism and autocracy,” he said. He continued, “My hope is that as time passes Americans will realize this was a failed experiment and we should...
    WASHINGTON (AP) — While most of the kids in Washington’s public schools are dealing with computer screens and Zoom rooms, a dozen students work diligently at their desks at Meridian Charter School, many separated by tall, three-sided partitions that were originally set up as protection against COVID-19. Head of School Matt McCrea said administrators later realized the enclosures wouldn’t do much to prevent the spread of the virus. Now the cardboard is optional, but more than half of the students still use them as personalized organizers — taping up calendars, decorations and schedules. “It’s all a learning experience and it’s all playing out in real time,” McCrea said. While the mainstream public school system in the nation’s capital was forced to start the year with total distance learning for all its approximately 52,000 students, about a dozen charter schools have essentially chosen to become medical-educational experiments, offering in-person instruction for select groups of students. Smaller and more nimble than the monolithic D.C. Public Schools system, the charters have been able to adapt and modify on the fly, trading information and...

    With the Covid pandemic shattering the parameters of working life, increasing numbers of city dwellers are dreaming of decamping to the countryside. Their desire for a fresh start, however, poses particular dilemmas. How easy will it be for those entrenched in office culture to earn a living out in the sticks? How much affordable housing is available in rural areas? And with so many seeking an escape to the country, how will society adapt? Topical questions, then — but by no means unique to 2020. Indeed, they were being asked long before coronavirus wreaked havoc on our world — by the Daily Mail, more than a century ago. Back in 1907, this newspaper launched a 'social experiment' to discover how feasible it was for those living in cities and towns to start a new, happier, life in the countryside. The brainchild of Daily Mail proprietor Alfred Harmsworth, 1st Viscount Northcliffe, the paper advertised an opportunity for one reader to live and work on a farm. Applicants had to be based in urban areas — the less experience of country life...
    The subject was the Nazi regime. Yet, a classroom full of students at the old Cubberley High School in Palo Alto in 1967 were having a hard time understanding how the German populace could have possibly accepted and endorsed the horrific actions of Adolf Hitler and the Nazis leading up to and during World War II. So, their history teacher Ron Jones decided to teach these students a lesson about the appeal of fascism. And the resulting social experiment — known as “The Third Wave” — would go very, very wrong. “I should never have carried out the experiment and put my class in such incredible danger,” says Jones, reflecting back on the events of more than a half century ago. “I crossed the invisible line and enjoyed my power, just like Stalin, Hitler, or Trump today.” Related Articles Why San Jose replaced all the shady trees on Post Street downtown New season by SF’s ACT: Even Scrooge has to face the coronavirus pandemic Sunnyvale community briefs for the week of Aug. 7 ...
