Source: Family decries ‘subculture of racism’ at Uxbridge High School – MetroWest Daily News bolding mine
Uxbridge Police Chief Marc Montminy said he heard from the school resource officer in early June that the school was handling the situation internally. The chief spoke to Darius’ family recently, though.
The town hasn’t had much experience with racial bias, said the chief, who came to Uxbridge last year from Manchester, Connecticut.
He also raised the possibility that the offending students might have acted more out of jealousy or rivalry toward the newcomer.
“We haven’t determined yet whether there’s intent behind it,” Montminy said. “My question, is this a racist vein that runs through the town or more likely an attempt to get under the skin of an individual?”
Classic excuse for racism, maybe it was some other factor that caused the people to use clearly racist language. Yeah right, the reality is you only use racist language when you are making racist comments, period.
This morning I read an update of a How-To Geek article on the Windows 1903 update. It said that Microsoft’s Mike Ybarra posted that everyone can get 1903 now. Clicking the link I saw that three days ago the VP of Gaming @ Microsoft posted this:
Mike Ybarra (Verified account)
If you want Windows 10’s latest update, 1903, as of today all users can go to Windows Update and get it. Variable refresh rate and exciting news at e3 – you’ll want to have this! #XboxE3
Since Mike is Corporate Vice President – Gaming for Microsoft I thought this must be true. I checked the two Win10 PC’s in my home office (one Win10 Pro and the other Win10 Home) and the update is NOT yet available. Microsoft really needs to prevent it’s VP’s of other divisions from spreading misinformation about Windows 10 updates. It is not helpful and perpetuates the impression that Microsoft can’t be relied on for accurate information.
As usual Orac has done a great job countering pseudoscience with science.
Go read the details at Ed’s place.
Hoschton Georgia appears to be competing for the title of most racist town in the USA. Multiple elected officials are quoted clearly spouting racist thoughts and asking the other politicians to cover it all up to hide their racism. If these elected bigots keep their jobs it means the majority of the population of that place are extreme racists.
Unfortunately the man who was discriminated against seems to accept the situation partly because he got a better job elsewhere so it’s unlikely the city will face any legal repercussions.
There’s a very common misconception about the version names for the Android operating system. Most people believe they are named for desserts but that does not fit the existing naming pattern.
Android versions are named for confections. Confections may be served as dessert but plain fruits and other non-confections can also be served as dessert. No version of Android has ever been named for a non-confection dessert.
Noticed this message in Chrome today and it made no sense since the PC I’m on is not managed by my organization. Google search found me this recent article, Chrome Saying It’s Managed by Your Organization May Indicate Malware.
Looking around it was clear the only managing being done is disabled password saving in Chrome. That’s something I always turn on anyway since I’ve been using LastPass Premium for many years now. In fact it seems like a nice registry setting so that I, or a Chrome update, can’t turn password saving back on without an extra step.
In my initial search there was result from the LastPass forum about somebody having problems because they had both Chrome and LastPass trying to handle passwords. That’s when I realized that the registry keys where probably set by LastPass to prevent any conflict when I installed the binary version this morning.
I long ago reached the opposite conclusion: if an organization brags about it’s piety, that’s a clear sign that they’ve got no integrity.
I was actually taught that by my American Baptist Minster dad back in the 1960’s. Go read the whole post as always it’s well done.
