Re: “Study: N.C. among 10 states with highest HIV infection, death rates

Herbal supplements have existed for thousands of years and can be traced during several different cultures. As for now. Herbs are now used to cure Diabetic Herpes, Chronic Pain, Asthma Regurgitation, Chest Pain, Nausea, Dysphagia, Hiccups, even Sore Throat and Heartburn. I love herbs so much. Most times, injection and drugs are just a waste of time. I was cured of Sore Throat and Heartburn disease last year with the use of herbs and super soap, i suffered from Sore Throat and Heartburn for 13 years but with the help of DR. OSAS herbal medicine, i was cured within few weeks of using the herbs and super soap which he sent to me through DHL delivery service. I don't know the kind of health problem you are facing right now but i assured you that you will be cure if you contact Dr. OSAS and explain your problem to him, that issues will be solve within few weeks, Contact Dr OSAS through his Email address: drosasherbalhome@gmail.com or WHATSAP/CALL him on +2349035428122. share the good works of Dr Osas and save others lives from different kind of infections.

Re: “As White Students Leave Traditional Public Schools in Orange County, Minorities Are Paying for Charter Schools That Don’t Serve Them

From my viewpoint Mr. Crawford has it right, too bad he wasnt elected in the primary.

The delusion of merit creates public school policies that stratify divide and impoverish instead of teaching, uniting and enriching. The truth is public schools are failing because the economics of education has been reduced to a private good; its only justified by future salary and social status. People on the lower end of the Gatsby curve pull their kids from public schools because they are being treated unfairly and they see an economic opportunity. People at the higher end of the Gatsby curve pull their kids from public schools because there is a clear economic advantage and they want to maintain their status. The motive and ability to game the system has become the new test of merit.

The real tragedy is that the parents concerned enough to do this at both ends of the Gatsby curve are the very parents that care to be involved and could potentially fix the public education system. Too bad their kids only get one chance and would have to endure the broken system in the meantime. The child rearing imperative further reduces the public education system to the lowest common denominator.

A genuine education opens minds and creates good citizens and until it does the flight of people who care will continue.

Re: “Find Your Own Life Philosophy in a Pair of Big-Name Country Gigs This Weekend

Really? That's how you see the choice? A splintered table full of mud and barbed wire or a lovely table full of gold and donuts? Others may differ- me, being one of them. How about, instead, framing it as a choice between country and twang pop? I mean, Sugarland is fine and all - catchy little twang pop tunes with as much meaning and chewiness as a glazed doughnut, but they are not "country". And there's so much more to Willie, et al, than "pain".

Re: “An Old Hedge-Fund Billionaire Just Bought the Carolina Panthers, And We’re OK With That

Yeah, totally different from the panthers current owner! And when this billionaire goes to the city, county, or state and begs for taxpayer money to further renovate or build a new stadium and threaten to move the team, I'm sure Indy will still talk of him so glowingly.

Re: “Durham Residents Will Get to Tell the City How to Spend $2.4 Million

Middleton and Schewel were right to vote no. We elected the city council to make decisions on the budget - not to cede their power to an unelected board that will soak up $304,000 in admin costs. That $304,000 could have been spent on actual projects.

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 year....it 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!!!
