Los Angeles Democratic Mayor Eric Garcetti and other city leaders recently broke ground on a permanent supportive housing complex that will use stacked shipping containers to house formerly homeless people.
. . .
The audit determined that more than 1,000 units of housing approved through the measure could exceed $600,000 apiece, partly due to“the high level of soft costs,” which “indicates that developers are spending large amounts on non-construction activities such as fees, consultants, and financing costs.”

There are several thousand nearly complete viral genomes integrated into the human genome, most now inert or missing a crucial gene. These account for 1.3% of the entire genome. That may not sound like much, but 'proper' genes account for only 3%. If you think being descended from apes is bad for your self-esteem, then get used to the idea that you are also descended from viruses.

Oberlin College Students Erect Memorial to Palestinian Islamic Jihad Terrorists

... does not accord with casualty tolls shared by international observers and the involved parties, including those in the Gaza Strip, which largely acknowledge that a majority of fatalities were members of Palestinian Islamic Jihad, an Iranian-backed terrorist organization that is blacklisted by the United States, European Union, and others.

I didn't intend to imply that I agreed with the tweet (I didn't read it), just wanted to share the video. I don't know about banning masks and "criminalizing" Antifa, but governments have a responsibility to protect their citizens. Antifa, especially in Portland, is blocking streets, intimidating people, and assaulting them.
Citizen fights back.

An NPR reporter used "Latinx" as if it's in the dictionary and not a totally made-up word to satisfy the P.C. police.
If you can't say Latino, maybe use Latin.

How is that pronounced out loud? Does it sound like "lynx" or like "DirectX"?

The latter. Latin-ex. I had wondered myself until yesterday, only having seen this aberration in written form.

And what exactly is the meaning of Latinx vs Latino? And why can't you say Latino? Is that now the "L" word or something? Jeez, I can't keep up with all of the PC nonsense. :P

Oh, that's easy. "Latino" is obviously sexist.
