It’s hard to think that the Joplin tornado was only two years ago. Like it was such a big thing for this entire area. Missouri is no stranger to tornadoes, but this was obviously the one that really injured and shocked the areas.
A lot of people in Joplin were saying they couldn’t even look at the news because they were afraid of seeing the aftermath of the Moore tornado, and that seeing it made them instantly nauseated. Though, many victims of the Joplin tornado did send a large banner saying “Miracle of the Human Spirit” which was the community’s mantra during the reconstruction effort as well as volunteers and multiple semi trucks worth of water for the town of Moore.

capitalists have a kind of code that they use to disguise how unpleasant their system is. “free markets” uses the notion of ‘freedom’ to basically mean “the freedom for capitalists to exploit without excessive restraint from the state (i.e. the central organizing…
Out of the tragedy of the massive garment factory collapse in Bangladesh, workers have now won two major reforms:
1) A panel to raise the minimum wage in the garment industry and
2) The right to form trade unions without prior permission from factory owners.
Still, more pressure—and responsibility—need to be placed upon America’s big-brand companies to win further protections.
A very good definition of privilege.
A student who was arrested and beaten for falling asleep at school is now suing an Alabama city, its police department and some school employees for civil rights violation, battery and negligent supervision and hiring. The Courthouse News Service reports that after the diabetic student fell asleep while in a room reserved for “in school suspensions,” a school police officer slammed her face into a cabinet and then arrested her. The incident occurred at a high school in Hoover, Alabama.
Ashlynn Avery, who has diabetes, asthma and sleep apnea, was suspended for cutting class, and had to sit in the in-school suspension room. While she was reading “Huckleberry Finn,” she dozed off. First, the in-school suspension supervisor walked over to her cubicle and struck it, which caused the cubicle to hit Avery’s head, according to the lawsuit. She woke up, but soon fell back asleep. The supervisor, Joshua Whited, then took the book from her and slammed it on on, which caused the book to hit the student in the chest.
Avery was then told to leave the room, according to the complaint, and police officer Christopher Bryant followed her. Bryant slapped her backpack, and then “proceeded to shove Ashlynn face first into a file cabinet and handcuff her,” the complaint states. While in the car, Avery vomited. She was taken to a hospital and had to wear a cast as a result of her injuries.
“Ashlynn required follow-up care to her shoulder, arm, and wrist, Ashlynn also required extended mental counseling for trauma caused by the defendants,” the lawsuit states. The Averys are seeking “compensatory and punitive damages for civil rights violations, battery and negligent supervision and hiring,” the Courthouse News Service reports.
