Ontario Grade 9 students to negotiate end-of-term grades

A new pilot project at a high school in Ontario will see Grade 9 students negotiating their end-of-semester grades with their teacher, an idea some experts say will help keep the focus on learning.

The students, enrolled in four courses at Mayfield Secondary School in Caledon, Ont., will receive feedback from their teacher throughout the semester, but not grades. At the end of the term, they’ll sit down with the teacher and evaluate their course work and will, ideally, come to an agreement on an appropriate final grade.

Chicago Mayor Calls City’s Public School System A “Trump Free Zone”

Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel, having solved all of his city’s other problems, assured students Tuesday that Chicago Public Schools are a declared “Trump Free Zone,” and that the city would not turn over any students affected by the President’s proposed DACA rollback.

“To all the Dreamers that are here in this room and in the city of Chicago: You are welcome in the city of Chicago. This is your home. And you have nothing to worry about,” Emanuel announced to a group of kids, entering school for the first day of classes. “Chicago, our schools, our neighborhoods, our city, as it relates to what President Trump said, will be a Trump-free zone. You have nothing to worry about.”

Trump Issues STRONG Defense of His Dreamer Decision

The fundamental problem with Obama’s DACA order is that it is simply an executive order. Far-reaching decisions about who is and isn’t a citizen must be determined by the legislative branch.

Trump underscores that Obama knew at the time he penned the order that what he was doing was unconstitutional:

“In referencing the idea of creating new immigration rules unilaterally, President Obama admitted that ‘I can’t just do these things by myself’ – and yet that is exactly what he did, making an end-run around Congress and violating the core tenets that sustain our Republic,” the president continues.

“There can be no path to principled immigration reform if the executive branch is able to rewrite or nullify federal laws at will,” he states.

Bush’s EPA Chief Says Trump Staff Was Totally Unprepared For Harvey Response

A former EPA chief during the Bush administration claimed Monday that the agency under President Donald Trump’s authority wasn’t prepared to deal with the fallout from Tropical Storm Harvey.

Trump should have focused on appointing regional EPA administrators in the areas Harvey pounded, Christine Todd Whitman told reporters about the president’s response to the massive storm.

North Korea’s nuclear test site at risk of imploding, Chinese scientist says

The team from the seismic and deep earth physics laboratory made the claim in a statement posted on their website on Monday. Its leader, geophysicist Wen Lianxing, said that based on data collected by more than 100 earthquake monitoring centres in China, the margin of error was no more than 100 metres.

Wang Naiyan, the former chairman of the China Nuclear Society and senior researcher on China’s nuclear weapons programme, said that if Wen’s findings were reliable, there was a risk of a major environmental disaster.

    The death of a 4-year-old girl from cerebral malaria, “a severe form of malaria”, is being investigated by Italian authorities. The disease is supposed to have been eradicated from Italy nearly half a century ago.

    Sofia Zago died in hospital in the northern city of Brescia overnight between Sunday and Monday. She hadn’t visited any country where malaria is common.

    Something to do with migrant influx?

    • Yeah, the invaders will be bringing their bodily diseases with them, as well as their sick psyches and evil Islamic religion and culture.

  • Thanks for the great veggie breakfast, BCF! At last, I can eat something!

    Or is that meant hidden under the eggs?

    • andycanuck

      I don’t know. It looks like breakfast sausage to me but it’s on the flat side for that and tubular breakfast sausage can’t be squashed like that while cooking. On the other hand it doesn’t look like it’s chopped vegetables in egg or the like either. Hmm. A puzzler.

      Addendum: The photo is a link, Avi, and it looks like it’s fried, chopped-up mushrooms–the Croque Champignon. Unless the eggs in the background are the restaurant’s meat version and the foreground is the vegetarian version? Although the foreground one doesn’t have Hollandaise sauce on it?


      • Oh, well. It’s the intention that counts.

        • There’s plenty of choices on the menu, click the picture.

          • Looks good!
            This morning for breakfast, at about 10 am, I had some fresh melon, then some Swiss Crunch Muesli with coconut & apple flakes with Rice drink (i/o milk) poured on it, followed by some Wasa Swedish crackers and a bit of organic Greek goat Feta cheese with olive oil and dill.
            We veggies have the good life.

            Avi, Please.
            I have wondered what would happen to me if I ate the breakfast BCF offered us every morning.
            I figured I would survive about 3 weeks and then they wouldn’t be able to get my through the doorway to go to the hospital. KAPUT! Fini. Eas Gadal…

          • Me too! But I always assume it’s prepared for a group of people, the BCF team. Of course, I known it is fun provocation.

  • ontario john

    Gee, who ever thought this would happen under a Liberal government. The Globe and Smell is reporting that the Liberals are considering buying used fighter jets from Australia. Well, I suppose that will be ok, as long as they fit the requirements of personnel, under the new hiring policies of black, muslim, lesbians in wheelchairs.

    • Mickey Oberman

      The Liberals are accustomed to flying upside down.

    • Justin St.Denis

      Almost everything about contemporary Canada is second-hand, including its SJW agenda which does not “fit” Canada’s actually history (but that’s okay because few Canadians know their history anyway). It is to laugh!


      • ontario john

        As the Toronto Star writer stated yesterday, our first prime minister and history is about Aryan Supremacy.

        • Justin St.Denis

          Stupid can’t be fixed, but in Canada it can find a publisher. Sad.

    “Trump should have focused on appointing regional EPA administrators in the areas Harvey pounded, Christine Todd Whitman told reporters….”

    Aah haa! that ever reliable Hindsight to the rescue.
    The unerring wisdom of the Too Little, Too Late geniuses.

    • andycanuck

      And I must have missed recovery efforts having been a failure to criticize in the first place. In fact, the MSM have been pretty quiet about it. I guess they’re all pro-Trump now.

      • Mickey Oberman

        FAT CHANCE.

  • shasta

    Who will be the the first stupid student to agree to a mark lower than a B? I think I should be allowed to revise all my marks to all A++.

    • Liberal Progressive

      Anything less that an A is discrimination against the academically challenged!

    • Clausewitz

      I knew this was in the works last year. Just another reason why I retired at the end of last year.

    CTV morning show is excited about a new hand book on how to use violence against all the Nazis running rampant in Canada. Yes they interviewed a Canadian university instructor who outlines that using violence against groups is ok, and how to do it.

    • Justin St.Denis

      Gee whiz, Mom, it’s not like it’s my fault! I was walking home and decided to nail a few Nazis on my way, like they said on TV. Sorry about the Nazi blood on my jeans. That third Nazi bled like a stuck pig after I cracked his skull open. How was I to know there was so much blood inside one fuckin’ Nazi?

      • ontario john

        I wonder if I can declare Trudeau a Nazi and beat the crap out of him.

  • Hard Little Machine

    Christie Todd-Whitman, one time governor of NJ and once the EPA (NOT FEMA!) director has been a lifelong hack.

    The Toronto Star is excited that Obama is coming to Toronto to talk about the benefits of globalism. I’m sure he will donate the money to Harvey victims. And the Star is helping to sponsor Hillary Clinton’s book tour in Canada.

    • Mickey Oberman

      That is typical of The Toronto Star.
      MSM personified.

  • ontario john

    A Liberal senator is calling for Canada to take in thirty thousand Daca invaders. That’s a lot of new Liberal voters.
