The wild thing about this Telugu character bug is that it’s being treated as such an obscurity. More people speak Telugu than Italian. The population of Telugu-literate people worldwide is greater than the population of Germany.

Bought a slice from Sam's Club. Happy with my purchase.

Renowned economist Prof. Prabhat Patnaik in solidarity with JNU Teachers' Association, says that measures like attendance and surveillance are disciplinarian measures used to turn students into unthinking machines.

LOTS OF QUESTIONS: In a country with no party of the workers, how does the labor movement build and exercise power? What is the role of labor in the path to socialism? And what is the ideal relationship between left organizations and organized labor?

Sanders' history and rhetoric are far closer to the socialist tradition than Stein's — and he's done far more for the US Left than anyone else alive.

Instead of attacking Jill Stein, you'd think the Daily Kos crowd would take a critical look at the political strategy that lost an unloseable election.

Shocked to check the box score and see that Ben Simmons hasn't missed a jump shot yet.

This seems even less competitive than usual — someone come save the All Star Game.

I've had some problems with Jill Stein and the Greens, but watching them get smeared and attacked from the center lately, it's time for solidarity. Jill Stein was the only candidate on the Nov 2016 ballot that shared the Left's moral principles. That has to count for something.

No problem, if you sent an email we'll get it resolved. It may take till business hours on Tuesday to get a reply though.

Players aren't calling for a boycott, and removing fans from the equation who care about safety won't help matters.

I mean, minors can play it by themselves in parks if they really want, I mean organized by (and profiting) institutions.

I still watch the NFL, but it's hard to argue with the idea of banning minors from playing tackle football. I can't imagine going to another high school game.

I really need to buy a new tv — and also avoid illness, education, and food.

At its core, to be a socialist is to assert the moral worth of every person, no matter who are they, where they’re from, or what they did.[1]  [1] Backstreet Boys, “As Long As You Love Me,” Backstreet’s Back.

Nah, I don't think so. The year before the people thought the Knicks would play the Celtics tough though (Tony Douglass as X factor)
