Today I present a very special treat. Conservative groups in Alabama uphold a ban on yoga in school citing fears of the practice spreading Hinduism.

Legislation that would have allowed yoga to be taught in Alabama public schools died in committee Wednesday, stalling a years-long battle by one state legislator to bring the practice back.

Bill AL HB246 was put forth by Alabama State Rep. Jeremy Gray, who wrote that bringing yoga back to school would be voluntary. It sought to overturn a ban on the practice in Alabama schools in place since 1993.

Can someone please explain Mr Seehofer how the Internet works and why his idea is stupid and dangerous? Such incompetence and cognitive dissonance is no longer funny, and he should resign immediately.

Absolutely insane!

Hours-long waits, problems with new voting machines and a lack of available ballots plagued voters in majority minority counties in Georgia on Tuesday — conditions the secretary of state called “unacceptable” and vowed to investigate.

Democrats and election watchers said voting issues in a state that has been plagued for years by similar problems, along with allegations of racial bias, didn’t bode well for the November presidential election, when Georgia could be in play.

“This seems to be happening throughout Atlanta and perhaps throughout the county. People have been in line since before 7:00 am this morning,” Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, a Democrat, tweeted shortly after polls were supposed to open — and in some cases still hadn’t.

So, basically the color of your skin defines if you’re allowed to vote. Un-fucking-believable!

The demand to reform police departments is causing some local governments to look at new regulations and laws.

So, you’re telling me that was not already the case? What the fuck is going on there!?

US President Donald Trump has been lambasted by the medical community after suggesting research into whether coronavirus might be treated by injecting disinfectant into the body.

He also appeared to propose irradiating patients’ bodies with UV light, an idea dismissed by a doctor at the briefing.

Any similarities are purely coincidental. Anyway, I think this looks quite familiar and “Bao Hu San” translates into protective umbrella, so they are actually Shanghai Ruilan Protective Umbrella Biotech Limited.

Avast, the multibillion-dollar Czech security company, doesn’t just make money from protecting its 400 million users’ information. It also profits in part because of sales of users’ Web browsing habits and has been doing so since at least 2013.

That’s led to some labelling its tools “spyware,” the very thing Avast is supposed to be protecting users from. Both Mozilla and Opera were concerned enough to remove some Avast tools from their add-on stores earlier this month, though the anti-virus provider says it’s working with Mozilla to get its products back online.

But recently appointed chief executive Ondrej Vlcek tells Forbes there’s no privacy scandal here. All that user information that it sells cannot be traced back to individual users, he asserts.

I love the last sentence of this quote. That’s like, the surveillance cameras don’t monitor you. They are just monitoring the streets.

Now guess what! On German keyboards the layout of the third and the forth row start with “asdf…” and “yxcv…”. The first row starts with “1234…”. The dash is just to reach “high” security validation. Even without the dash the password would be a valid one.
