Overbooking is a common practice of airlines in which the company will deliberately assign more passengers to a plane than can actually fly on it, based on the assumption that some passengers will cancel flights. This ensures that planes are nearly always full and thus maximizes profits for the airlines. But perhaps this practice needs to end, because of the following incident:
I have friends who have deluded themselves into assuming dogmatically that any teenager who has sex with an adult and even has a baby with him or her is automatically a victim of sexual abuse. I have never believed this (I think if force was not used, it should not be called rape and age is irrelevant). Now I find a story that seems to prove how right my position is.
Man Who Fathered Former High School Teacher’s Son Allegedly Kills Them Both: Source
A former high school teacher’s former student has been accused of killing both her and their young son — born from an affair that made headlines in 2013 — a New York City police source tells PEOPLE.
An NYPD spokesperson declined to comment on the case, but the department source says Isaac Duran was charged Tuesday with two counts of murder in the deaths of former Dewitt Clinton High School teacher Felicia Barahona and her 4-year-old son, Miguel.
The 36-year-old mother and Afghanistan War veteran was found dead Monday morning in the living room of her Manhattan apartment, according to the police source, who confirms that she was strangled with an electrical cord and Miguel was drowned in the bathtub. The boy was found face-down, floating in the filled tub, the source says.
Their bodies were first discovered by the apartment building’s superintendent, who checked on Barahona after noticing a foul odor that seemed to be coming from her unit.
Duran was taken into custody later Monday, according to the source.
Under “intense questioning,” PEOPLE’s source alleges that Duran “owned up” to the killings — at one point “referencing Satan.”
Duran’s custody status was not immediately available Tuesday afternoon. It was unclear from court records if he had been before a judge yet, entered a plea to his charges or whether a bail amount had been set for him.
It was unknown Tuesday if Duran had retained an attorney who could comment on his behalf.
According to the NYPD source, Duran initially denied having any involvement in the deaths and told detectives he hadn’t been to Barahona’s apartment building since 2012, when their son was born. However, police discovered that Duran was spotted on surveillance video entering and leaving the building over several days.
According to those reports, Barahona began having sex with Duran after he turned 18, though they later split in early 2012 before Miguel was born. Barahona was fired from Dewitt Clinton High in August 2012.
Her family could not immediately be reached.
Still want to claim that young man was merely an innocent victim of abuse? No, he was the real abuser here. The teacher was wrong, but she and her child did not deserve the death penalty!
Read this story:
NEW YORK: After several complaints and repeated suspensions, the micro-blogging site Twitter has permanently ban Milo Yiannopoulos, the tech editor at conservative news site Breitbart and one of Twitter’s most offensive users.
The move came after Yiannopoulos led an online troll against ‘Ghostbusters’ star Leslie Jones who vowed to leave Twitter over her treatment, prompting a major outburst on social media, engadget.com reported on Wednesday.
“People should be able to express diverse opinions and beliefs on Twitter. But no one deserves to be subjected to targeted abuse online, and our rules prohibit inciting or engaging in the targeted abuse or harassment of others,” Twitter said in a statement.
“Over the past 48 hours in particular, we’ve seen an uptick in the number of accounts violating these policies and have taken enforcement actions against these accounts, ranging from warnings that also require the deletion of tweets violating our policies to permanent suspension,” it added.Yiannopoulos reacted to the ban, saying that the site has “confirmed itself as a safe space for Muslim terrorists and ‘Black Lives Matter’ extremists, but a no-go zone for conservatives.”
The Breitbart tech editor has been disturbing Twitter users with his trolls for the past few years. Twitter earlier removed his verified status, but allowed him to keep tweeting.
Last March, Chuck Johnson who once argued that homosexuality caused a horrendous Amtrak train crash, was permanently barred from the site.
Just to verify this guy’s claims, I checked to see if other prominent conservative media personalities are still on Twitter.
Here is Rush Limbaugh’s Twitter account:
Here is Bill O’Reilly’s Twitter account:
This is Ann Coulter’s Twitter account:
Donald Trump also has a Twitter account, and uses it often:
No, Yiannopoulos, you were not banned for being conservative, because they all are too. You were banned for being a worse racist asshole than any of them. And that is saying a LOT. So you lied and I am calling you out on it.
By now, the massive media uproar over Donald Trump’s admitting on a recorded statement that he wanted to sexually assault a married woman is blowing more wind than Hurricane Matthew on Florida and the east coast of North America.
A friend of mine just made this long and profound statement on Facebook. I think it needs to be preserved for as many people to see as possible. I left her name out of it, but her identity does not matter. NO ONE should have to endure this!
Here are some rules for men who do not want to be accused of raping a woman:
1. ALWAYS ask the women directly during a date in a private setting, “Do you want to have sex with me?” If her response is anything other than, “Yes,” drop the issue and do not bring it up again until she does.
2. Never talk about the experience of having sex with anyone other than a licensed therapist, your parents or other guardians (if you are underaged), or a clergyperson in a counseling session. PRIVATE MATTERS MUST REMAIN PRIVATE. Other men do not need to know how you “banged that hot chick last night”.
3. The claim that women claim to be raped because they regret having sex with a man long after the fact is simply self-serving bullshit. Do not repeat that claim, ever.
4. Even if you use protection or any form of birth control, PROMISE the woman that if she gets pregnant, you will either support the child or pay for an abortion, whichever she decides.
5. Do not merely be a woman’s sex partner…..be her LOVER. Be willing to share in anything she does or is involved in or ask her to share in things you enjoy. If you do not want a complete relationship with a woman, you can always masturbate by yourself.
6. Unless your partner is a porn star, you do not need to take or possess nude pics of her. And NEVER post them online!
That is all for now. If I think of more, or if you have your own suggestions for rules, this list will be added to.
