The ALA’s list of the 10 most challenged books in 2015 bears this out: it includes I Am Jazz and Beyond Magenta, about young transgender people; Fun Home and Two Boys Kissing, which deal with homosexuality; Habibi and Nasreen’s Secret School, which feature Muslim characters; and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, by Mark Haddon, which was cited for “atheism.”
Censors are increasingly focusing on books that represent diverse points of view

According to new research from the OECD found that richer teenagers were more likely to use the internet to search for information or to read news rather than to chat or play video games.
Poorer teenagers spend roughly the same time online as their wealthier classmates. But they're using this time differently, and it's counting against them.

Yes, it is a FARCE. We are having a debate party because this debate provides entertainment, nothing else.
Republicans are praising Hillary Clinton as the most skilled and experienced politician ever to stand behind a podium. Democrats note Donald Trump, a former reality star, is especially savvy on television.

Trump will be able to promote businesses he continues to own from the West Wing podium. He would also have wide latitude to take official acts that benefit his empire.

+Esther Wojcicki  NO he is letting his kids run his business while he is president The other stories we hear are more or less just propaganda spread by democratic liberals because that is what they would do ... His kids are already running the day to day business
