Jury awards $68K to black student injured after white classmates wrapped rope around her neck

https://thehill.com/homenews/state-watch/414506-school-ordered-to-pay-68000-to-black-girl-after-classmates-allegedly

A private school in Texas this week was ordered to pay $68,000 in damages to the family of a black student who said white classmates wrapped a rope around her neck and dragged her to the ground, according to The New York Times.

A jury in Travis County ordered the school pay $55,000 for the physical pain and mental anguish caused by the 2016 incident, $10,000 for disfigurement sustained and $3,000 for medical expenses. The family sought $5.3 million in damages, but the jury did not determine that the school was guilty of gross negligence.

We've taken your feedback from the poll and are going to implement a new ruleset for /n/. As always, our ability to moderate is directly linked to you reporting posts you see breaking the rules. We may be modifying this ruleset further in the future as we try to tune /n/ into a place that allows the maximum amount of discussion and causes the minimal amount of trouble. If you have questions or comments, find us in irc (rizon.net #/k/) or post a thread in /sug/

--

If you find yourself prone to fits of rage, are susceptible to trolls, cannot deal with dissension, ignorance, stupidity, or other such afflictions of the internet, I advise you not to scroll down, and to instead visit one of our other lovely boards. By scrolling down you are taking your mental health into your own hands, and the staff takes no responsibility for your inevitable aneurism. You've been duly warned, enjoy your News.

Board Specific Rules for /n/:

1. Thread titles must be nonbiased and a succinct representation of what is in the article. Threads with titles that don't meet this criteria will be deleted. A link to the article is required where possible.

2. Personal Attacks are now banworthy, it is fine to disagree with the content of a post, but ad homs and tripfights will now be met with bans and post deletions, regardless of the rest of the content of the post. So watch yourselves.

3. All posted articles must have national/international relevance. No more "two grannies shot in hoboken". This will be enforced at mod discretion.

  ConcernedCitizen is drafting the official changes, but for now to limit reports I would like to outline a slight rule change:

/n/ is no longer limited to national/international news.

Anything traditionally newsworthy that impacts or potentially impacts people on the international, national, or regional level or is exceptional on the local level can have its own thread.

For local stories with no real impact - we will be crafting a Flawda thread to contain them.

Here is some food for thought:

http://www.mediacollege.com/journalism/news/newsworthy.html

All other rules remain in effect until further notice.
>> No. 101062 ID: 1fb1a6
Bump to be on top of the Flawda thread.

Threads that dissolve into accusations of schilling and tripfighting will be locked. Don't do it in the flawda thread either or you'll be banned.

$8.63bn wasted on Russian "stealth fighter" fraud scheme
http://www.business-standard.com/article/economy-policy/8-63-billion-advanced-fighter-aircraft-project-with-russia-put-on-ice-118042000029_1.html

>The proposal for India and Russia to jointly develop an advanced fighter — the eponymous Fifth Generation Fighter Aircraft (FGFA) — has been formally buried. Business Standard has learnt that National Security Advisor Ajit Doval conveyed the decision to a Russian ministerial delegation at a “Defence Acquisition Meeting” in end-February.

>Doval and Defence Secretary Sanjay Mitra, who attended the meeting, asked the Russians to proceed alone with developing their fifth-generation fighter. They said India might possibly join the project later, or buy the fully developed fighter outright, after it entered service with the Russian Air Force.

>New Delhi and Moscow have discussed the FGFA since 2007, when they agreed that Hindustan Aeronautics (HAL) would partner Russia’s Sukhoi Design Bureau (Sukhoi) in developing and manufacturing the fighter. In 2010, Sukhoi flew the fighter, called Perspektivny Aviatsionny Kompleks Frontovoy Aviatsii, or “Prospective Airborne Complex of Frontline Aviation” (PAK-FA). Seven prototypes are currently in flight-testing.

>Russia said the PAK-FA met its needs, but the India Air Force (IAF) wanted a better fighter. So HAL and Sukhoi negotiated an $8.63-billion deal to improve the PAK-FA with the IAF’s requirements of stealth (near-invisibility to radar), super-cruise (supersonic cruising speed), networking (real-time digital links with other battlefield systems) and airborne radar with world-beating range. In all, the IAF demanded some 50 improvements to the PAK-FA, including 360-degree radar and more powerful engines.

>Defence ministry sources who played a direct role in negotiations with Russia say much of this money was earmarked for Indian production facilities for manufacturing 127 FGFAs, and for India’s work share in developing advanced avionics for the fighter. It also included the cost of four PAK-FA prototypes for IAF test pilots to fly.

>Now, the IAF has backed away from the FGFA because it argues the PAK-FA — which Sukhoi has been test-flying since January 2010 — is not stealthy enough for a fifth-generation combat aircraft.

Well, hm, it did not take too long to blame Russia for something. Because NATO is a defensive alliance and absolutely never wants and even capable of simulating GNSS spoofing attack.

Surprisingly, media narrowly avoids directly blaming Russia for collision with the tanker, since, it turns out, their transponder was offline and they weren't reacting to environment too well.

>The responses from Ingstad appear confused, at one point saying that if they altered the course it would take them too close to the shoals, which prompted Sola TS to respond that they had to do something or a collision would be unavoidable.
>Contributing to the confusion, the Ingstad appears to have been transiting with its Automatic Identification System switched off. That seems to have delayed recognition by central control and the other ships in the area that Ingstad was inbound and heading into danger, the account in VG seems to indicate.

On Nov. 11, 2018, the Norwegian Armed Forces, or Forsvaret, had said the ship was "stable." Over the weekend, workers had also added two additional anchor wires between the vessel and the shore, for a total of seven.

Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his longtime business partner Rick Gates have been charged in a 12-count indictment with conspiracy against the United States, conspiracy to launder money and making false statements.

It marked the first criminal allegations to come from Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation into possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia to influence the 2016 election.

Gates did not respond to a request for comment, nor did Jason Maloni, a spokesman for Manafort. Manafort was spotted walking into the FBI’s Washington Field Office Monday morning.

>Prince, America’s most famous private military contractor, acknowledged last week that he “cooperated” with Mueller’s investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election after falling under scrutiny amid questions about an alleged effort to establish a backchannel between the Trump administration and the Kremlin, something Prince has vehemently denied.

>ABC News has since learned that Mueller is also reviewing Prince’s communications. In response to questions from ABC News, a spokesperson for Prince released a statement noting that Prince has provided Mueller with “total access to his phone and computer.”

>“As Mr. Prince told the Daily Beast he has spoken voluntarily with Congress and also cooperated completely with the Special Counsel’s investigation, including by providing them total access to his phones and computer,” the spokesperson said. “Mr. Prince has a lot of opinions about the various investigations, but there is no question that they are important and serious, and so Mr. Prince will keep his opinions to himself for now and to let the investigators do their work. All we will add is that much of the reporting and speculation about Mr. Prince in the media is inaccurate, and we are confident that when the investigators have finished their work, we will be able to put these distractions to the side.”

tl;dr is that leaked text messages from his daughters (which Wikileaks refused to publish) have shown that Paul Manafort forced his wife to get gangbanged by other men for his sexual gratification after she fell off a horse and suffered a head injury, she would not consent to this while sober so he had to get her drunk/drug her beforehand.

The Office of the Special Counsel investigating the 2016 election has asked the FBI to investigate whether women have been offered money to make claims of sexual harassment against Robert Mueller.

Peter Carr, a spokesman for the special counsel's office, told The Hill in an email: "When we learned last week of allegations that women were offered money to make false claims about the Special Counsel, we immediately referred the matter to the FBI for investigation.”
