More like “Ok Stupid.” A fed-up New Yorker tore down lurid subway advertisements for the dating app OK Cupid. “All of this is gross. For kids to be looking at this, is that OK??” she said in viral videos posted to Twitter on Wednesday. The woman walked up and down the D train car, ripping the ads down—while ranting about COVID-19 and communism—as silent, masked straphangers looked on.(Snip)“Nicely done,” another woman told her. “That’s what bravery looks like. Say ‘No’ to propaganda.” The provocative ads target “non-monogamists,” monogamists, “pansexuals,” potheads, “bears,” fetishists, and just about every other group. One aimed at “submissives” features

Harris in recent months hired Lorraine Voles and Adam Frankel, both of whom worked with her transition team, to assist with 'organizational development, strategic communications and long-term planning,' a White House official told the Washington Post. Frankel, who worked as a speechwriter for former President Barack Obama, is married to Psaki's sister Stephanie Psaki, a senior adviser at the Department of Health and Human Services. The new public relations hires come as Harris,

Beto O'Rourke has slammed Joe Biden for his handling of the migrant crisis, comparing the current President to Donald Trump in his decision to deport thousands of Haitian asylum seekers from the southern border. O'Rourke—who once described Biden as 'kind, caring, and the antithesis of Trump'—made the comparison in a scathing op-ed published in El Paso Matters on Friday, claiming the Commander-in-chief's new border policies were 'antithetical to our values and our common humanity'.(Snip)'We need to hold accountable those who would treat immigrants as less than human—whether they were separated from their families and placed in cages under Trump

The Garment District is Gotham’s newest shooting gallery, a disturbing heroin hotspot of addicts booting up in broad daylight. The outgoing de Blasio administration appears unwilling or unable to address the crisis, as the quality-of-life disaster unfolds just steps from high-profile Midtown landmarks such as Macy’s, Madison Square Garden and the sparkling new Moynihan Train Hall. The block bordered by 35th and 36th streets, and Seventh and Eighth Avenues, is “littered with used needles, broken glass crack pipes, trash, urine, and feces” as junkies shoot up and dealers brazenly sell drugs, lamented one neighbor on social media. “I’ve personally seen dozens of deals go down.

Two white students at Arizona State University were forced out of a 'multicultural learning space' after two female BLM activists took issue with the Police Lives Matter stickers on their laptops.(Snip) The footage begins with the white students sitting at a table studying before they are approached by two activists who state: 'You're offensive. Police Lives Matter? This is our space. You're making this space uncomfortable.' The activists, who appear to be black, tell the white students they must leave, saying: 'You're white. Do you understand what a multicultural space means? It means you're not being centered.' 'White's not a culture?' one of the white students subsequently asks.

President Biden’s wavering $3.5 trillion social welfare bill took another hit when Rep. Alma Adams said she’s a no vote unless more money goes to historically Black colleges and universities. Ms. Adams, a North Carolina Democrat and top advocate for HBCUs, said Mr. Biden is shortchanging the Black schools in the massive spending bill.(Snip)Mr. Biden promised during the campaign to give HBCUs $57 billion to upgrade campuses and improve research facilities. The Government Accounting Office found in 2018 that 46% of the buildings at HBCUs needed repair or replacement. However, the Black colleges are slated to get just $2 billion in the bill, a fraction of what

A passenger aboard a JetBlue flight from Boston to Puerto Rico tried to storm the cockpit before choking a flight attendant—and shouted at the pilot in Arabic and Spanish to shoot him, officials said. Flight 261 was about an hour from San Juan late Wednesday when Khalil El Dahr became enraged after a phone call he tried to make was unsuccessful, according to an FBI affidavit obtained by ABC News. Some 25 minutes later, he “pulled himself out of his seat and rushed toward the flight deck yelling to be shot” in Spanish, the document says. The heroic flight attendant pushed El Dahr into a space

A group of 13 scientists from around the world released a statement on Thursday demanding that health care providers more carefully consider using acetaminophen (APAP) on pregnant women until the drug is investigated for potentially hindering the development of a fetus inside the womb. The statement, published on Thursday in the journal of Nature Reviews Endocrinology, suggests that “prenatal exposure to APAP might alter fetal development, which could increase the risks of some neurodevelopment, reproductive, urogenital disorders.”(Snip) The statement was also cosigned by 91 scientists from countries across the globe and implores that pregnant women be alerted to the possible risks of APAP as a cautionary measure

Hundreds of Chinese video game makers have agreed to ban 'politically harmful, historically nihilistic, dirty and pornographic, bloody and terrifying' content in Beijing's latest culture crackdown. The 213 firms, including top industry players Tencent and NetEase, promised to also enforce curbs on underage players. The companies also promised in a joint statement to police their products for 'money worship' or 'effeminacy' in their games.(Snip)That reflects official concern that Chinese pop stars, influenced by the sleek, girlish look of some South Korean and Japanese singers and actors, are failing to encourage China's young men to be masculine enough. Broadcasters should avoid promoting 'vulgar internet celebrities' and admiration of wealth
