She made race based attacks on people based on types of marginalization that she is exempt from; and did so from a position of power partially gained by the fact that she is exempt from these types of discrimination.   It’s racist. Stop making excuses.  “That dark skinned woman who’s an incumbent running for office likely has about the same amount of systematic power as I do.” Is this person on drugs?

A middle school in Achille, Oklahoma is closed following violent threats by parents on social media against Maddie, a 12-year-old transgender student who identifies as female and used the girls’ bathroom.
Maddie had been using the staff bathroom at her old school but used the girls’ bathroom at the new school because she wasn’t sure where the staff bathroom was. She was then accused of peeping under a bathroom stall. Her mother said it was probably because she “leans very far forward to use the bathroom.”

cognitive: Democrats Propose A Bill That Would Allow Free Childcare @balleralert Democrats Propose A Bill That Would Allow Free Childcare- blogged by @niksofly ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Democrats introduced "The Childcare For Working Families Act" on Thursday. This proposed bill would allow working families who earn 150% less of the state's median income to receive free childcare. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Within the next two years , the legislation aims to use $90 billion to ensure no family will spend more than 7% of their income on childcare. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Representative Bobby Scott (VA) stated, "Decades of research shows that properly nurturing children in the early years of life is instrumental in supporting enhanced brain development, cognitive functioning, and emotional and physical health." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Scott continued, "Today, the cost of child care has skyrocketed and too many parents now have to choose between paying for child care or a good-paying job. This bill fixes this national crisis and lays out the path of what early learning in America should look like.”

Olives are a healthy source of fiber, supplying almost 20% of the daily requirements for fiber in a single cup. . Various compounds in olives function not only as antioxidant compounds, but also anti-inflammatory ones. These reduce inflammation throughout the body after eating them, which includes a reduction in pain and irritation in the joints, muscles, injuries, tendons, and extremities which may suffer from various types of inflammation from a number of medical conditions. Particularly in terms of arthritis, gout, and other rheumatic conditions, olives can be a major benefit and alleviate the associate pain. .

Olives possess a monounsaturated fat called oleic acid, which has been linked to preventing heart disease. The oil of olives is where this oleic acid is located, and it is responsible for lower blood pressure, which reduces the chances of cardiovascular complications and general stress on the system. .
