Walmart Karen works for Kaiser Permanente. She racially profiled another customer and abused him, she thought she'd get away with it but twittersphere worked out that she was wearing a KP t-shirt.

Now KP are on the case. KP is a large US healthcare company so likely wanting to protect their image.

General Amir Ali Hajizadeh

Quote

In recent weeks, one Iranian name has been on the lips of Israeli military officials: General Amir Ali Hajizadeh.

The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Aerospace Force Commander has been held personally responsible for Tehran’s growing drone capabilities and its attacks on a number of Israeli-linked ships - most recently the Mercer Street tanker in the Gulf of Oman.

Some Israeli security officials, analysts, and observers even believe Hajizadeh to be the “new Qassem Soleimani”, a Revolutionary Guard general shaping Iranian policy and enjoying the ear and trust of Iran’s supreme leader.

TV rots your brain - proof

 

Quote

Now, sadly, science has trundled along to back it up. According to Dr Ryan Dougherty, from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in Baltimore, the more television you watch in middle age, the lower your volume in grey matter. Examining the viewing habits of 599 American adults between 1990 and 2011, Dougherty found that those who watched an above average amount of television showed reduced volume in their frontal cortex and entorhinal cortex. Basically, your mum was right: TV really does rot your brain.
