Organizers cancel 82nd Avenue of Roses Parade, after protesters threaten to shut it down

A threatening email has derailed one of the Portland Rose Festival’s signature events, and spurred new debate about the ongoing political protests in Portland.

Organizers of the 82 nd Avenue of Roses Parade announced Tuesday that the event will be canceled, for fear that the east Portland parade could be disrupted by “the type of riots which happen in downtown Portland.”

Originally scheduled this Saturday, April 29, the parade is meant to highlight the local community and businesses along Southeast 82 nd Avenue, aiming to turn around the negative perception many people have of the area. It started in 2007 and has since become a popular event on the Rose Festival calendar.

Georgia bans funding to ‘sanctuary’ campuses under new law

The measure is expected to have no immediate impact since no colleges in Georgia have embraced so-called “sanctuary” policies. Students at several metro Atlanta universities did call for changes following President Donald Trump’s election.

Trump issued a series of immigration measures in January and has attempted to withhold federal funding from “sanctuary cities.” A judge blocked the funding order this week.

Republican Rep. Earl Ehrhart sponsored the Georgia proposal, saying he wanted to ensure no schools adopt such a policy. Advocacy groups say the law sends an anti-immigrant message.

Lawmakers in Alabama, Indiana and Pennsylvania have introduced similar bills.

University of Wisconsin students who disrupt speeches and demonstrations could be expelled and campuses would have to remain neutral on public issues under a bill Republican legislators are pushing this week.

The bill comes as free speech issues have grown more contentious on college campuses across the country. Conservatives are worried that right-wing speakers aren’t given equal treatment as liberal campus presenters and some students have complained about free expression fanning racial tensions.

Bethlehem, Not Berkeley, Is the Birthplace of Free Speech

It seems that hardly a day goes by when the call for “safe spaces” and “speech codes” is not headline news. Every week there are too many stories to count of colleges and universities showing themselves to be more bastions of ideological fascism than bulwarks of intellectual liberty; where students and faculty alike seem to be more passionate about restricting debate than they are about defending the freedom to disagree.

Fox News Is Now Being Sued For Racial Discrimination And Harassment

Fox News anchor and reporter Kelly Wright has joined 12 other current and former employees in a lawsuit against the cable news network, claiming they endured repeated racial discrimination and harassment for years while senior executives deliberately ignored it.

The suit comes as the embattled network scrambles to repair its image after the firing of top-rated host Bill O’Reilly last week over sexual harassment claims, and last summer’s ousting of former chief Roger Ailes, who was also accused of sexually harassing women. Both men have vehemently denied the allegations.

Freedom Caucus endorses Obamacare repeal compromise

President Donald Trump inched closer to his elusive goal of transforming the health care system Wednesday as hard-line House conservatives — once the chief opponents of the GOP plan — embraced a new proposal to replace Obamacare.

Senior House Republican sources said they still didn’t have the votes for passage Wednesday evening. But GOP leaders felt bullish enough about their progress that they began considering a vote as early as this week. Nothing is scheduled. However, Republicans on Wednesday — through an obscure House rule for another piece of legislation — gave themselves same-day authority to fast-track any bill at the last minute, through Saturday.

The majority of murders in the U.S. occur in only a small percentage of counties across the country.

The Crime Prevention Research Center (CPRC) said in a new report that there is a “geographical concentration” of murders, with 68 percent of killings occurring in just 5 percent of the nation’s counties.
