Talking about implementing high speed rail in Australia for the last 40 years and still not doing it.

Implementing fiber optic cabling for wifi access in roads except keeping the copper wires directly to the houses.

There is a reason why Australia has really bad internet access.

This is the dumbest decision ever and it may be hard to top it.

I read this in a post on Gamecentral, I'll summarise it rather than quoting it word for word.

You've all heard of loot boxes who hasn't, well prepare for mystery laptops.

For an initial outlay you make a laptop purchase which will come with a minimum level of hardware. If you're lucky you may get a better processor, more memory or storage and maybe even a better screen.

However much they're charging for the laptops will be too much, loot boxes are bad enough but mystery laptops are just ridiculous that brings to mind the old saying a fool and they're money are soon parted.

If anyone wants to look at the website selling the mystery laptops it's called Woot.

that’s just gambling...

I would buy a computer only after I research about it...

That’s just for people who like to waste money for something,
be it for a good thing or bad thing. Who ever takes a part in that, I reckon doesn’t even want a laptop.

Games companies that don't include the DLC code for a games DLC in the box but instead include a code that you have to input on a website to get the DLC code for the game.

That's what happened with Deus Ex Mankind Divided, it would have been so much easier if they had included the DLC code in the box instead of making me jump through hoops to get the code, this was because of the digital books that were a bonus for pre-ordering the game plus because of the font they used I couldn't tell if one part of the code was a zero or the letter o.

The code should have been included in the box like it was with Deus Ex Human Revolution.

I saw it in one of today's papers that some school principals here in Ireland have discouraged pupils from taking part in climate change protests as part of the school climate change strike movement.

Some school principals have labelled the strikes infuriating, it seems that the schools that discouraged the kids care more about keeping their attendance figures up than more important issues.

Right up until I left school for good back in 2003 I frequently heard the teachers say that keeping the attendance figures up was more important than anything else.

Since it's rare that young people care about major issues like climate change, the school principals should be encouraging them to take part not discouraging them from taking part.

Bump

I saw it yesterday on the Irish Mirror website that a 5 year old boy who has autism has been put on record as a sex offender because he hugged a classmate.

The boy named Nathan from Tennessee USA was allegedly accused by teachers of overstepping a boundary.

His mother said she received a call from his teacher at the start of September, she said the teacher told her he had been accused of sexual activities for hugging a child and kissing another child on the cheek.

The school doesn't seem to care that he is autistic according to the boys grandmother who questioned why the school wouldn't listen to the family or their doctor about the challenges the youngster was facing.

If the teacher or teachers think that hugging and kissing are sexual activities then I suggest that they do a Google search and they will see that there is far more to sexual activities than hugging and kissing.

Besides people hug and kiss each other all the time it's perfectly normal last time I went out with my cousin for a drink I hugged her nothing sexual there and at a christening for my cousin's (the same cousin) second son, I saw her first son hugging another boy and I didn't see any SWAT teams bursting in to arrest him for alleged sexual activities.

I wonder if these teachers are qualified to identify signs of sexual activities, because if they have not been properly trained to spot the signs of sexual abuse I can't help but wonder how many signs they have missed of genuine abuse because they see hugging and kissing among children as signs of sexual activities.

It's stories like this that make me think that common sense doesn't exist anymore and stop the planet I want to get off.

As a teacher myself, that is beyond ridiculous! With autism or not, hugging and kissing on the cheek are nothing sexual, especially when we’re talking about a child who may be going to kindergarten or elementary school...

Is the rules on US schools that strict? (ridiculous)

Found the article - https://nypost.com/2019/09/25/autist...al-harassment/

DragonSlayer no offence but when you mention news stories on here could you also include the URL to the article as well, thanks.

---------------------------------

Beyond ridiculous!

To even register a 5 year old a sex offender, they are concluding they are of an age where they can consent to such activity (despite this not being of sexual nature). Therefore, they may as well repeal any criminal activity whereby an adult has engaged in sexual activity with those 5 and above.

That is the logic I am getting here and it's stupid.


I'm assuming Tennessee is as educated as Alabama.
