1. One particularly insidious form of damage done by the minimum wage is that it perpetuates itself as a bad idea by encouraging employers to mistreat and exploit employees, thereby playing into the pro-minimum-wage stereotype of employers as evil exploiters requiring laws to make them be fairer.

4. Germany Officially Gives Up On Free Speech: Will Fine Internet Companies That Don't Delete 'Bad’ Speech

15. Why Would You Meet With a Nobody Promising a Watch, If Putin Already Gave You a Rolex?
Действительно - если Путин купил Трампа, зачем Трампу-мл. встречаться с какой-то мелкой сошкой для получения неизвестно чего? Разве в этом случае они бы не получили весь компромат напрямую из Кремля? 
Впрочем, логика никогда не была сильной стороной конспирологов.

WJC gave in Moscow.

44. On May 4, law professor Reginald Robinson was deemed responsible for sexual harassment after two students complained about a test question involving a Brazilian wax and an upset client. After a 504-day investigation, administrators determined that Robinson would be required to undergo mandatory sensitivity training, prior administrative review of future test questions, and classroom observation. Robinson also received a stern warning that any further “violations” of the university’s Title IX policies may result in his termination.
В чём состояло преступление профессора? Он приставал к студенткам или студентам? Он принуждал их к просмотру порнографии? Что сделал это старый извращенец?
Он задал вопрос про Brazilian wax. A female student challenged a test question’s premise that a person could sleep through a Brazilian wax. After a complaint to administrators by two students and a 16-month investigation, Robinson was informed that one of the students allegedly believed the question’s premise somehow required her to reveal to the class whether she’d had a Brazilian wax.
Всё. Это, оказывается, считается sexual harassment:
This dubious assertion, coupled with the use of the word “genitals” in the law school test question, contributed to then-Deputy Title IX Coordinator Candi Smiley’s determination that Robinson is guilty of sexual harassment.

And by "not safe," she means prospective rapists.
Во чувачкам с мамашей повезло.
