  • Don’t follow this tip on how to stop bullying
    "...if you find your kid being a target, one thing you could do to help them, separate from the bullying, is you can help them learn not to be annoying,” says an Oregon elementary school principal in a controversial Youtube video. Principal Luke Zedwick of Centennial Elementary School in Scio, Oregon posted the video titled “Let’s Talk About Bullies.” In it, he says this: “In my experience the kids who get bullied are not really good friends. They're not good at being a friend. They tend to annoy people, maybe without knowing it, but usually they do know it." Parents of students at the school are outraged, accusing Zedwick of victim-shaming. He told local station FOX 12 that he may have come off a bit strong, but he insists parents should be aware there are instances that young c
  • DNC takes aim at Trump campaign, Wikileaks, and Russia
    The DNC is taking aim at the Trump campaign, Wikileaks, and Russia, in a new lawsuit alleging that they worked in tandem to help President Donald J. Trump to win the 2016 Presidential Election. The lawsuit, though it did not specifically name President Trump himself, does name Donald Trump Jr., and Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. Russian hackers infiltrated the DNC’s network, and leaked information including emails. "In he run-up to the 2016 election, Russia mounted a brazen attack on American Democracy," the lawsuit alleges. "The opening salvo was a cyberattack on the DNC, carried out on American soil."

  • Why Trump is good Spock vs. bad Spock
    President Donald Trump once again said that no one is tougher on Russia than he is. Come on, you need to stop. There’s been nobody out there who has downplayed Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election MORE than Trump. Do you remember when just this week when Nikki Haley came out with Russian sanctions and the White House called Russia and apologized about the sanctions? It’s like he’s Good Spock vs. Bad Spock.

  • Can you find North on a map? Why autonomous cars might leave us directionless
    Can you find North on a map? A Stanford researcher says those who will use driverless vehicles in the future might lose that ability. Another downside to switching to self-driving cars will decrease the automobile fatality rate. But on the other hand, with fewer accidents, there will be fewer organs to harvest for those who are in need.

  • Twitter loses it after reporter asks LeBron James question
    TNT basketball reporter Allie LaForce was destroyed on Twitter and Facebook after she asked LeBron James about the death of San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich’s wife. Allie asked Lebron about the death immediately following his 46-point performance in Game two of the NBA playoff series against the Indiana Pacers. Was that a fair question? Dave Noriega, long-time sporters reporter, answers that question. Dave is the co-host of Dave and Dujanovic and the co-host of Cougar Sports Saturday.

  • Jazz sweepage? They. will. not. be. swept. #takenote
    How did we get here, according to KSL.com? After a 19-0 run by the Oklahoma City Thunder, the Jazz found themselves in a hole. Donovan Mitchell dug them out of it. Mitchell led the Jazz to an 18-3 response to a 10-point deficit early in the fourth quarter, giving them a five-point lead that would largely withstand the Thunder's efforts in the fourth quarter. A highlight-filled 28 points and six rebounds pushed the Jazz over the top to get a critical 102-95 road win, tying the series at 1-1. Mitchell wasn't alone in his solid play, though. Jazz point guard Ricky Rubio finished with 22 points, adding nine assists and seven rebounds in a near-triple-double performance. Derrick Favors played well, especially in the game's first half; he finished with 20 points and 16 rebounds (including eigh

  • GOP to blame for no Comey and Clinton investigation until now
    Are you outraged about Hillary Clinton and the Loretta Lynch scandal? Have you been asking yourself why it’s taken so long to get Attorney General Jeff Sessions to appoint a second special counsel to investigate Hillary Clinton? Well, you’re in luck. Many people ask me why there isn’t an investigation into Loretta Lynch, Hillary Clinton, and James Comey until now. That’s up to Republicans. The Democrats have had nothing to do with the investigation into the Russian collusion. Well, you’re wildest dreams might come true. Thirteen House Republicans are asking Sessions to appoint a special counsel to investigate the Clinton emailgate. Who knows if the justice department will pick it up is another question.
