French Broadcastind Decides The F-word Is Suitable For Air

The F-word is an interesting thing in the fact that it’s turned into such a common phrase and is used so much, yet is still completely barred from television, radio among numerous other things. Now obviously it is still a vulgar word and isn’t necessary for any use, especially in those circumstances. It is obviously still more polite and professional not to use it when you shouldn’t. But with that, think about it for yourself. When you’re by yourself, with friends, playing a game, in an actual predicament or in any situation how often do you sling the f-word along with other similar words around? At the same time it is literally just a word, an expression, a phrase with no real meaning. It seems to be the older population that really keeps it in this light, a lot of them pretending it just doesn’t exist and refusing to associate themselves with it. Everyone else is becoming more lenient when it comes to specific everyday language, the f-word included. People believe that again it is just a word, something so little that we don’t even really think about. If you’re like me, you just know it and are more than comfortable with it. Always have heard it and in that category of just not thinking anything of it. More importantly knowing that as long as you don’t use it when you shouldn’t, it doesn’t change who you are and shouldn’t have any offense taken with it.

Connecticut Shooting

Nearly five years ago a tragic event occurred when 20 year old Adam Lanza opened fire on on Sandy Hook Elementary, killing 20 first grade students all ages six to seven, along with 6 staff members in the Newtown Connecticut district. Before going to the school Lanza had murdered his mother, and took his own life after first responders arrived at the scene. Lanza had single handedly committed the most deadly mass shooting at a school building in U.S. history. The event opened up a large discussion on gun control in the united states, in turn many families of the victims took to court against major gun producers. In 2016 many lawsuits were dismissed, but now the families have taken the suit to the Supreme Court to receive justice for the unlawful deaths of their loved ones.

Hot Mantle Plume Under Antarctica Threatens Ice Sheet

Climate change is a scary topic, one that promises a lot of disaster in what many consider the near future. Since the Industrial Age of the world we have continued to spew forth more and more waste material, which we have found to be of huge impact to our environment. However, many do not realize that climate change (or more commonly global warming) is also a natural occurrence. This is further supported by recent events involving the discovery of a hot mantle plume in Antarctica that threatens to melt the surrounding ice sheet.

Kyrie Irving’s Cavalier v Celtics Stats Comparison

 

Kyrie Irving has recently been traded to the Boston Celtics and many believe that it was a bad choice because (as they believe) Lebron James was the only reason he had great stats and games. I do not think this. Kyrie is and all-around amazing point guard and he can lead a team by himself. The Celtics, as of right now, are 8-3, whereas the Cavaliers are 5-7. Logically, you would think that the Celtics just are a better team and have better players, but the Cavs have 7 all-stars and Boston only has 2. One of them even has been injured at the beginning of the season, so technically, they only have one single leader. Let’s see how much better/worse his first 12 game stats are:

Deadly Air Pollution in New Delhi

The rapidly worsening air pollution in New Delhi is causing a total of 1.1 million people to die prematurely each year. A new study of air pollution is showing that this is the deadliest in the world, passing China now. This toxic cloud of pollution has fallen on India’s capital causing headaches, coughs, delaying flights and trains, and even taking the step of closing schools for around a week.

The pollution lately has been alarming and is considered 30 times what the World Health Organization says is safe. Even if you have air filters in your house, that chemical smell still lingers and finds its way in. The air irritates the throat and tastes smoky with the smell of paint. Many people feel sick all day. The smog is so heavy and thick that drivers can’t see in front of them causing highway pileups and serious accidents. The smog is from a combination vehicle emissions, smoke from crops burning on farms nearby, and also industrial pollution. The smog looks like a mixture of fog and white smoke. The cold weather at this time of the year packs in the smog making it even worse and even harder to breathe.

Call Of Duty WW2 Top 5 Guns

Call of Duty is a first-person shooter that is extremely popular amongst teenage and young adult gamers. The newest edition of this title is set during the major conflict known as World War II. There are a myriad of weapons available to the players, but a certain few (specifically five) that are heavily favored amongst the community. The favored weapons are the STG-44, PPSH-41, BAR, Lee Enfield, and the Machine Pistol.
Starting at number 5, the Machine Pistol is a solid secondary weapon that is fully automatic and has a generous 10-round magazine. Typically, a player using the sniper class would have this as his/her backup weapon that could catch any intrusions on their perch and empty the mag with one pull of the trigger. This would give the player enough time to decide to vacate their position or reload and continue. While its range is not the greatest, a sniper only needs to worry about enemies up close. This pistol is the answer to that scenario.

Marisa Harris’s mother explained how it was ironic that the boy who killed her child could have been helped by hers. Given her work with children, the circumstances of her death — after a suicide attempt by a 12-year-old — were not lost on the family. Harris’s father described her as outgoing and well-traveled. She had an affinity for the outdoors and loved hiking, he said. “She was fearless, she was absolutely fearless,” he said. “She was loved by her friends, she was dearly loved by her family, she was admired by her peers, she was just a shining star.” And her professional interest ran in the family: Harris’s grandfather is also a psychologist, and her father said she “comes from a long line of psychologists.” Marisa’s parents know that her daughter could have helped the depressed child. Marisa was a graduate from summa cum laude from Towson University before beginning her from a program at Marymount University where she studied mental health counseling. The police at the scene made it unclear if the boy responsible for the death of Marisa Harris would have to be charged.

Tunnel Collapse in North Korea Leads to Radiation Concerns

On October 10 a tunnel collapsed at a nuclear test site in North Korea. The report says that around 200 people were crushed in the collapse. The disaster is said to have been caused by one of the many series of tests of nuclear weaponry currently being tested in North Korea. While many are obviously concerned over North Korea’s newfound ability to set off hydrogen bombs, they have since called it a “perfect success”. The blast was strong enough to create a magnitude 6.3 earthquake, which is what caused the tunnel to collapse. Experts have determined that the damage and strain to the surrounded environment of the blast is irreversible and scarring.
