Train bosses try to stop antisocial

hotspot stations

The Telegraph (UK), by Staff

Train bosses are trying to stop anti-social behaviour by playing soothing classical music at a crime-ridden railway station. Extra security guards have already been called in to tackle youths annoying commuters on the platforms in Hull, East Yorkshire. But train operator TransPennine Express had said the music would be played as part of a three-month trial in an attempt to curb the bad behaviour. One theory is that the music will be deemed so unfashionable and potentially damaging for teenagers´ street credibility that they will shun the area. The company said that the same move at Cleethorpes station had cut

I read the comment sections of the Brit papers (which are heavily censored by government lackeys). The general feeling seems to be that the only way to get arrested in England is to be a white male citizen having bad thoughts.

If these thugs would listen to Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms and Schubert at home they would likely be different people altogether.

Garbage in - garbage out.

Currently Brahms is my favorite. Third Symphony and Second Piano Concerto (which I am slowly learning to play as it is a massive beast).

This sounds crazy but it works. When I was a Sgt. in Hollywood Division about 30 yrs ago, a 7-11 was having a problem at night with street people hanging out. I suggested classical music be played instead of the stuff they were playing. It worked, about a 70% decrease on vagrants.

We were regularly exposed to classical music in grade school as well at home - which happily resulted in a lifetime appreciation of it. So sad modern education deprives the classics in music, literature and art (as well as history & civics).

Several years ago, I read about a stop-and-rob in a rough area that was having problems with drug dealers plying their trade outside the front doors of the shop. The owner tried everything he could think of to get them to leave, including calling the police, but they always came back.

One day, he had the brilliant idea of playing opera on the store speakers. IMMEDIATELY, the thugs took flight for easier pickings.

I love opera and I laughed when I read about this.

Now middle-aged, the enfant terrible novelist Bret Easton Ellis, has turned to nonfiction to mock the "childlike fascism" and "demented narcissism" of American liberals that helped put President Trump in the White House and left them facing "mental and emotional collapse." For good measure, Ellis, 55, also denounces the "legacy media" in his new book "White" — originally due to be called "White Privileged Male" — describing it as "a moral disaster for the country" that had covered Trump in the 2016 with such bias and "absolute cluelessness" that it assisted him.

While anchoring breaking-news coverage of the fire, Smith interviewed witness Philippe Karsenty, the deputy mayor of Neuilly-sur-Seine and a controversial right-wing media figure. Early in the call, Karsenty suggested that the Notre Dame blaze—which is currently being investigated as an accident—was a terrorist a

While Christians have long challenged Charles Darwin’s theory of undirected evolution, few appreciate the true extent of the challenge beyond the church. Current estimates are that approximately one-third of professional academic biologists who do not believe in intelligent design find Darwin’s theory is inadequate to describe all of the complexity in biology. Ben Stein documented a crackdown within the academy on criticism of Darwin in his 2008 documentary “Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed.” While this might explain why the public rarely hears of challenges to Neo-Darwinism, the documentary centered on intelligent design. But the growing discontent in academia is from secular naturalists.
