Breitbart tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos spoke tolerantly about pedophilia…

“When I was 14…I was a predator.”

…in video clips that emerged on social media Sunday evening, ahead of his speech at this week’s Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).

CPAC reportedly announced over the weekend that the alt-right provocateur would be this year’s keynote speaker at the conference. However, organizer Matt Schlapp reportedly said that Yiannopoulos will not be the keynote speaker, but instead, will be one among 75 other speakers that include respected members of the GOP, such as Vice President Mike Pence and White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus.

Following this, the controversial video of Milo emerged where he is seen defending pedophilia in the past. The video is from a 2016 episode of “The Drunken Peasants” podcast.

In the video, Milo was asked: “The whole consent thing for me. It’s not this black and white thing that people try to paint it. Are there some 13-year-olds out there capable of giving informed consent to have sex with an adult, probably…”

No raise for adjunct instructor — February 19, 2017

No raise for adjunct instructor

In Career Questions and Answers by Marie G. McIntyre, Tribune News Service  (TNS), the above title caught my eye.  Why did I find this article interesting?  First read this article and then wait for a day for the continuation of my experience in this field.

Q. Ten years ago, I became an adjunct instructor at a local university. At that time, the going rate for adjuncts was $2,500 per semester for each class taught. Amazingly, our pay hasn’t increased one penny since. An older instructor says he received the same amount 20 years ago.

Whenever someone asks about increasing pay for adjunct faculty, management replies that they need to control costs. Yet somehow administrators and professors seem to get raises on a regular basis. From what I hear, this also happens at other universities. Any thoughts about how to fix this?

Will this story be one day a song by yours truly.

TAMPA — At first, the Port Tampa Bay workers thought the man bobbing in McKay Bay on Friday afternoon was a swimmer. He wore a bathing suit and had the slender body of a devoted athlete.
