Makeup is literally art, don’t care what no one says.
Dad made his son a hand with a 3D printer for $10 instead of paying tens of thousands for a prosthetic.
How cool is this
Accessible healthcare….the way it should be….but they won’t let this get too far. I bet prosthetics companies find a way to clamp down on this quick fast and in a hurry. Sad but true
Suppose my auto-repair man devised questions for an intelligence test. Or suppose a carpenter did, or a farmer, or, indeed, almost anyone but an academician. By every one of those tests, I’d prove myself a moron, and I’d be a moron, too. In a world where I could not use my academic training and my verbal talents but had to do something intricate or hard, working with my hands, I would do poorly. My intelligence, then, is not absolute but is a function of the society I live in and of the fact that a small subsection of that society has managed to foist itself on the rest as an arbiter of such matters.
Hempstead Independent School District (ISD) in Texas has confirmed that a middle school principal has been placed on leave after Latin@ students said that she forbade the entire school from speaking Spanish.
A group of students told KHOU that Hempstead Middle School Principal Amy Lacey announced over the intercom on Nov. 12 that they were no longer to use their native language in order to “prevent disruptions.”
It was over two weeks later before the superintendent sent a letter home insisting that “neither the district or any campus has any policy prohibiting the speaking of Spanish.”
But the students said that the effect of the ban had been chilling.
“People don’t want to speak it no more, and they don’t want to get caught speaking it because they’re going to get in trouble,” sixth-grade student Kiara Lozano explained to KHOU.
Some students felt that the principal gave teachers permission to discriminate against them.
“She was like no speaking Spanish,” eighth-grader Yedhany Gallegos recalled. “I was like that’s my first language. She said, well you can get out.”
Hempstead ISD spokesperson Laurie Bettis said in a statement that Lacey had been placed on leave while the district investigated the charges.
“The district has received allegations regarding this issue and the district is investigating the matter,” Bettis wrote. “At this time, the administrator is on administrative leave with pay until the investigation is completed and appropriate action is determined. This is all we can say at this time as there is a pending investigation on this matter.”
“The district is committed to efficiently and effectively resolving this matter with as little disruption to our students and their learning environment as possible.”
Well I don’t see anything wrong w/ this… English is a universal language. No matter where you go, you’ll find someone that speaks English.
I don’t care what foreign language you’re speaking, if everyone doesn’t understand it, be quiet. Think about the people around you who are uncomfortable and don’t understand you.
I absolutely hate! when I go into an establishment and the employees don’t speak English.
1) Students should be able to speak whatever language they want to each other because like, so many reasons (freedom of speech, and who cares, and being bilingual is like a USEFUL LIFE SKILL).
2) English isn’t universal because do you even know what that word means?
3) It’s a school. Where people might want to conceivably learn things like, I don’t know, FOREIGN LANGUAGES? (Not that this is what this is about, but xenophobia and racism are so counterproductive to the attitude that schools should be fostering, seriously.)
4) “Think about the people around you who are uncomfortable and don’t understand you.” If you’re uncomfortable because someone who isn’t talking to you and probably doesn’t want you listening in to their conversation is speaking a foreign language, the fact that they’re speaking Spanish doesn’t sound like the problem there. (Spoiler: you are the problem.)
5) 90% of the good food in the world comes from establishments where at least some of the employees don’t speak English and if you can’t figure out how to complete a simple retail transaction with someone who doesn’t speak a ton of English I feel sorry for you because you’re missing out on so much good stuff in the world.
5) Please for the love of god never travel anywhere.
Don’t see people screaming after white students speaking French/German in high schools across America.
