Re: “Moogfest 2018: Can a Music Festival Help Us Unlearn White Patriarchy?

Yeah Vitale, it's not like it's possible to book a full day festival focusing on local female artists that only scratches the surface of what's out there.…

Re: “Moogfest 2018: Can a Music Festival Help Us Unlearn White Patriarchy?

The whole thing bothers me on levels you can't imagine, But not for reason's you may think, The minute Moog made the festival about something other than music? I was out. 1. I work in the Business and its kind of hard to hire equal amounts of each Gender when the numbers aren't equal, to begin with, you pick any site like ReverbNation and for any genre, there are 100's if not thousands of men to females. It's not discrimination it's reality. here locally there's only one female Rock Band a couple of ladies doing the country a couple doing pop vs several thousand men doing the same genres Why is that? It isn't because they arn't welcome or not wanted that's for dam sure

Re: “Breaking: Nancy Errichetti, Head of the Montessori School of Raleigh, Arrested for Allegedly Aiding and Abetting Sexual Abuse

I agree with all the comments. The board is and has been controlling everything. Nancy has been a puppet. She is not an educator and if you confront her with a concern or problem at the school, she quickly tells says, "You know I an an attorney". Meaningless. She does not have the moral compass to do what is right. She does not know what is going on on either campus. She does not know what her teachers are doing, even though she says she does. Certainly in her position, she would know the regulations and laws in place for reportable events such as these to protect children. It is shameful and disgusting that the board is defending her. I do feel they are guilty too of covering up this horrific series of events!!!!!! I hope our judicial system can get to the bottom of it and expose all who had a role in this. Hopefully the teachers can specifically name which board members were given information about Nick Smith.

Re: “Breaking: Nancy Errichetti, Head of the Montessori School of Raleigh, Arrested for Allegedly Aiding and Abetting Sexual Abuse

I agree with Momof6. I know some of the teachers that did not have their contracts renewed and they absolutely did not deserve that. It is also a known fact that several of them either spent some time working at the middle school or they had children at the middle school when the abuse took place, so it makes you wonder whether they brought inappropriate activities by Nick Smith to the administration during those years.

I also know some of the board members and I'm speechless that they continue to support the administration after their inexcusable and tragic failure to take action against Nick Smith many years ago. The only rational reason for their support that I can come up with is they are being forced to do so by legal counsel in the hopes of saving the school from a costly and potentially catastrophic lawsuit.

If the school does survive I certainly hope the board and the administration gets replaced by those willing to change the culture from that of fear and intimidation to one that brings back a more positive, trusting and harmonious atmosphere.

Re: “Poisoning our pets

If you suspect that your dog is unwell because of exposure to insecticides, you will need to remove your dog from the toxic environment, or cease using the insecticides, and seek medical attention for it before the condition becomes dire.It is very important to protect your dogs from various health issues.Arthritis is one such problem that is very common in dogs.I use pet bounce for my dog who was suffering from arthritis.It is a natural pain relief for dogs.

Re: “Breaking: Nancy Errichetti, Head of the Montessori School of Raleigh, Arrested for Allegedly Aiding and Abetting Sexual Abuse

I dont know what to say about this school. To be fair they do have many caring teachers. Unfortunately, the board is in control of the school and Nancy is abusive to the employees. Many employees reported to the board the abusiveness the employees received....all the employees who reported this to the board did not receive a contract for the next school was said that it was because of their poor performance but it was only the employees who had complained to the board about Nancy. This sets a very firm example: Dont tell the truth or there will be serious consequences....the employees of this school and the children of this school deserve better.

Re: “Lawsuit Claims the Montessori School of Raleigh Refused to Act on Allegations That a Teacher Sexually Abused Students

School should be shut down and a thorough investigation, by external authorities, undertaken. This school is suspiciously evasive and promotes a culture of secrecy. So glad we pulled our kids out when we did. They dismiss parent reports of wrongdoing (from personal experience). Wasted money, wasted time. Poor quality of teaching, poor leadership, and an embarrassment to Dr. Montessori's method.

Re: “Breaking: Nancy Errichetti, Head of the Montessori School of Raleigh, Arrested for Allegedly Aiding and Abetting Sexual Abuse

please help me understand how this school has NOT asked this woman to step down.

is she suspended without pay? does she have access to students and files? is she allowed on campus?
"she is at home with her family?" seriously?

she is a MANDATED REPORTER. state law requires mandated reporters to REPORT suspected abuse/neglect. she slapped his hand and wrote up a bogus corrective action plan, meanwhile this rapist continued to be around young children.

the board of trustees MUST BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE for this and fire her immediately. those in the education community are APPALED at how the board of trustees is handling this at MSR. THE WORLD IS WATCHING!!! SHAME!!!

I know, right? But the country has been this way from the very beginning. It's going to take time and a lot of work to get better.

Re: “A New Study Shows That Turning Local Cops Into Immigration Enforcers Hasn’t Made N.C. Communities Safer

Our local law enforcement aren't doing anything about illegal immigration. If anything they are willfully ignoring it at the benefit of large corporations and farmers. At the cost of the American middle class.

Another thing. Hog and Poultry producers along with power providers shouldn't be allowed to build right on our river systems. Every time it floods all that waste ends up in our rivers.

Re: “In Wayne County, N.C., Trump’s America Is Angry

One of the Major reasons for Trumps support in Wayne county is the Massive influx of Illegal immigrants and the disappearance of the american middle class in Wayne county.

Re: “The Immigrants Packing Your Butterball Turkey Are under Threat

From Paragraph 3. Quote " It has long filled its labor pools with migrant workers willing to do the dirty, dangerous, and demeaning jobs that Americans refuse to perform."
This is factually incorrect. Americans would do the jobs at a higher wage. And much of the illegal workforce is paid under minimum wage when housing and food deductions are included.
The Owners, whose family name I won't mention, Made an intentional decision to hire Illegal immigrants at a lower price than they could continue to employ american citizens. They also made the decision to provide housing and food for many of their immigrant employees, to then deduct those expenses from their wages. Meaning they can effectively pay much of their workforce under minimum wage after rent and food deductions.
Butterball makes enough of a profit to pay Americans a fair wage(although the owners might have to sell of their fleet of private jets). But it has made the decision to exploit illegal labor at the expense of the american middle class.
