    Norfolk Public Schools and sexual harassment of students

    in News

    Education reporter Cherise M. Newsome joins Pilot Radio to discuss a federal investigation that found Norfolk Public Schools negligent in handling complaints in middle and high schools about sexual harassment and treatment of students with disabilities. Newsome was first to break the story about the investigation, which concluded earlier this year. School leaders heard about the results in May, but not the general public. The Pilot published her story Sept. 27 after Newsome obtained a copy of the report from the U.S. Education Department's Office for Civil Rights. On Sunday, The Pilot is scheduled to publish Newsome’s exclusive interview with the family that spurred the investigation.

    Are You A Planet or A Pilot?

    in Spirituality

    If you are a planet ...


    You have huge mass, a set trajectory, inability to explore other planets. There is no objective reality because life on other planets has no relevance for life on your planet. Your experience is 3-dimensional. All experiences are equally relevant. You have a gravitational field around you affects everything around you. There are different conditions on each planet. 


    If you are a pilot...


    You have small mass, so you can change course at will based on your map. Your biggest assets are maneuverability, your quantity of maps, and the quality of your maps. To maintain high quality, you must visit planets. To maintain high quantity, you must explore. Space is always 2-dimensional – going from point A to point B. You need a variety of technologies, skills for using technologies, and cultural skills for interacting with people on different planets.


    There are 3 kinds of maps.


    1. Map of a planet and its regions,


    2. Map of planets in the context of other planets


    3. Map of galaxy in context of other galaxies


    However, "the map is not the territory." No matter how many maps you have, and no matter how good they are, you cannot substitute a map for an experience. The larger your ship, the more skills you need!
