Is Zero Tolerance an appropriate policy for schools to follow, or just a way for grown-ups in charge to get out of having to make tough decisions and take responsibility for them? Join About.com parenting experts Terri Mauro (Parenting Special Needs), Catherine Holecko (Family Fitness), Lisa Jo Rudy (Autism), and Amanda Morin (Kids' Learning Activities) as we look at the pros and cons of black-and-white thinking. Find out more about this topic and the articles mentioned on the podcast on our Facebook page.
The Zero-Tolerance rules adopted by many schools across the country has come under fire in recent months after a series of well-publicized incidents involving the suspension and/or expulsion of otherwise good students for seemingly innocent actions. The infractions triggering the rule varied from a schoolboy's pointing his finger at a fellow student like a gun and pretending to shoot him to a young girl's mother packing a small knife in her lunchbox so that she could cut an apple, to a young man who is accused of flashing a presumed gang hand signal in a photograph taken outside of school hours. All of these young people were suspended or expelled without the benefit of investigation or allowing the students any chance of self-defence. The rule and its draconian punishments is opposed by many educators and parents alike. Recent reports by such organizations as the APA have called into question the efficacy of zero-tolerance. They cite no net improvement in safety or student behavior as a result of aero-tolerance. Join Ken and Beth as they discuss this contentious issue. Ken is against and Beth is for. It looks like a showdown ladies and gentlemen. You won't want to miss it! 9:30PM PDT Thursday 3/13/2014, Beware the Ides-2 of March if you don't show up!!
This is Beyond the Airwaves: The Infinity Project, where we go beyond the mainstream media and tackle issues that don't seem so important to the major networks.
The school year has just barely started, and there are already crazy cases of zero tolerance policies gone awry again, from a high schooler in Memphis receiving an in-school suspension for simply saying "bless you" to a fellow student to a boy being arrested for writing a short story about using a gun to shoot an imaginary dinosaur. What is going on with all these crazy happenings with the schools enacting insane policies where even saying "bless you" could get someone in trouble? We get serious on this situation and then talk about other interesting topics for the day.

Are zero tolerance policies in schools across the country getting out of control? We'll examine some cases of schools that have suspended students and even sent some of them to reform school. Plus...could third-party bids and write-in candidates tip a handful of close races this November? Also...the food police are at it again with Florida threatening to ban chocolate milk in schools. And...why the outrage over KFC's plan to put ads on women's backsides? Let's discuss this Sunday!
Today we discuss the variables present within relationships that lead to disharmony and often break-up, or simply living in a state of arrested development because there is no where to go or nothing better out there. We also touch on areas within relationships, regarless of its nature, where there is verbal, mental, and/or emotional bullying taking place, as well offering some pratical tips for more sensitive souls on how to handle these kinds of dominating presences. We have eneted the zero-tolerance zone of life. Making excuses for "bad"behaviour is no longer the trend if you are serious about rising above these kinds of debilitating and disempowering relationships. In order to establish what must change, you muct decide what you want from you and from life.

" In this highly anticipated debute on his profoundly factual lecture on the Great nile valley Liberator "AHMOSE" (1)....King yashua will use several outstandingly creditable reference points to prove without a shadow of a doubt that "AHMOSE" The Liberator of the 18th dynasty, WAS A ACTUALLY PERSON and DID factually
(SET HIS PEOPLE FREE FROM THEIR CAPTORS)... King yashua will also easily prove that there is ZERO archeology or scientific evidence to even give any weight to the outrageously bazaar "TALE" of Mose....
Stevie J. Bio. - Already hailed as the new face of the Delta Blues, Stevie J is well on his way to capturing the crown of Southern Soul as well.
His guitar skills are nothing short of spectacular. He is a supremely confident vocalist capable of wringing every nuance from any lyric from any genre. Yet Stevie J remains humble and true to his first love. THE BLUES
Stevie J, the son of pastor and native of Jackson, MS, started his career in the gospel field playing for artist such as the Williams Brothers, The Five Blind Boys of Alabama, The Mighty Clouds of Joy, The Jackson Southernaires and the great Shirley Caesar.
Stevie J found his true calling when he teamed up with legends such as Bobby Rush, Pat Brown, Denise LaSalle and Shirley Brown. Stevie J recorded with Bobby Rush on the Folk Funk album and is also featured with the Martin Scorsese blues series live at Ground Zero. Stevie J has toured throughout Switzerland and France performing at the Cognac Blues Festival. His talent has also taken him to Spain, Italy, Norway and Belgium.
Stevie J is a delight to the eyes and ears. He plays what he feels and has fun doing it. Right now Stevie is enjoying the success of his new album 2 Sides OF a Man with the single “Because Of Me”, which is #1 on the Southern Soul chart.
There can be little doubt that Stevie J is the undisputed New Face of The Delta Blues (and goodwill ambassador of American Music), for as long as he lives.
