    The Lantern ^ | September 19, 2018 | Zach Varda
    The temptation to cheat is as old as the idea of administering exams and writing essays. As technology continues to evolve, cheating has become easier through the use of group chat apps like GroupMe and websites like Course Hero that let students share course materials. As a result, more Ohio State students are giving in to the temptation. A Lantern review of annual reports and statistics compiled by Ohio State’s Committee on Academic Misconduct reveals a large spike in the number of reported cases of cheating over the past four school years.

    Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam is poised to implement a new regulation without legislative approval to join 10 other states in a climate change agreement based on restricting carbon dioxide emissions from coal-fired power plants.But lawmakers, policy analysts, and tea party activists in Virginia who oppose what they consider costly regulations of industry are raising questions about the economic and scientific arguments underpinning the proposed rule.They say the Virginia General Assembly should have a straight up-or-down vote on Northam’s plan, in part to ensure that any revenue the governor raises from “carbon trading” is collected and dispersed in a manner consistent...

  • Stormy Daniels-Quarterback Roethlisberger Terrified Her Demanding Kiss After Trump Introduced Them

    09/21/2018 7:16:51 AM PDT · by sevinufnine · 22 replies
    Stormy Daniels has claimed she was 'terrified' by Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger's clumsy demands for a goodnight kiss. Daniels says he asked her for a 'goodnight kiss', but she refused. She says he pushed lightly on her door as they stood outside her hotel room. 'I was terrified. I am rarely terrified,' Daniels wrote, saying Roethlisberger pleaded with her saying, 'Come on.' After she closed the door, Roethlisberger 'stood outside, not leaving' while knocking at her door for several minutes but eventually left, Daniels says. The porn star says Trump introduced her to Roethlisberger, who was fresh off of...

    You may not have read about this GOP victory, because the liberal national media is not exactly excited to report that Republicans reclaimed a seat they had not held in 139 years. From the left’s standpoint, this victory is even more frightening because the district is 73 percent African-American and Hispanic. The big choices in this 17-county border district were: Right to life versus tax-paid abortion. As Catholics, many Hispanic voters simply won’t vote for liberals who are for tax-paid abortions. Of course, every Democrat who is campaigning for free government-run health care is campaigning for tax-paid abortion. Safe borders...

    George Soros is a real-life Dr. Evil, the only difference is that he's more dangerous and not as funny. He has disrupted Democracy and Capitalism across the world. And he might be involved in the anti-Judge Kavanaugh protests and the accusation of attempted rape three-plus decade ago. The Democratic Party's Progressive Puppet Master is often referred to as the "man who broke the bank of England" in the 1992 Sterling crisis. During that crisis, he made $1 billion in one day at the expense of British taxpayers and drove Britain into a recession as large numbers of businesses failed, and...

    Florida’s 13 million voters have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to help convicted felons who have paid their debt to society earn the right to vote, and to a second chance. Called the “Voting Restoration Amendment,” a proposed constitutional amendment will grant most of the 1.7 million convicted felons the right to vote and help select their leaders for local, state and federal offices. That is a good thing. It makes sense. To be eligible, these felons must complete “all terms of sentence including parole or probation.“ That means they would have paid restitution, court costs and fees, and completed community service,...
  • How The Lake Of Fire Glorifies God...Hell pt 1

    Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end; but establish the just: for the righteous God trieth the hearts and reins. My defence is of God, which saveth the upright in heart. God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day. If he turn not, he will whet his sword; he hath bent his bow, and made it ready. He hath also prepared for him the instruments of death; he ordaineth his arrows against the persecutors. ( Psalm 7:9-13)The Judeo/Christian teaching of a God of Holy wrath has by and large been rejected...

    National security adviser John Bolton defended his decision to eliminate a cybersecurity coordinator position at the White House, saying he "fixed" an overstaffing issue and that, "You know, the whole thing works." “I inherited a structure in the national security staff that was duplicative and overlapping," Bolton told reporters in a briefing Thursday. Bolton, who took office in April, said cutting the job in May did not negatively impact the National Security Council's ability to craft cybersecurity policy and respond to threats.

    ( – State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert gave short shrift Thursday to a Palestinian journalist who questioned U.S. opposition to one of the Palestinian Authority’s most controversial policies. Paying the families of convicted and dead terrorists, she told him, is “not a normal thing to do.” Said Arikat, Washington bureau chief for the Palestinian daily newspaper Al- Quds, suggested during a press briefing that objections to the payments were misplaced, since the monthly stipends do not go to the perpetrators of terror attacks but to family members who “have nothing to do” with the acts. “This is an issue that...

    From the article: "some of the most important of the Soviet Union’s memetic weapons. Here is that list again: There is no truth, only competing agendas. All Western (and especially American) claims to moral superiority over Communism/Fascism/Islam are vitiated by the West’s history of racism and colonialism. There are no objective standards by which we may judge one culture to be better than another. Anyone who claims that there are such standards is an evil oppressor. The prosperity of the West is built on ruthless exploitation of the Third World; therefore Westerners actually deserve to be impoverished and miserable. Crime...
  • How Strong Does the Evidence Against Kavanaugh Need to Be?

    09/21/2018 6:49:38 AM PDT · by TigerClaws · 68 replies
    The allegation made by Christine Blasey Ford — that at age 15 she was the victim of a sexual assault by a 17-year-old Brett Kavanaugh — has not only upended Judge Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation hearings, but has also left Americans wondering what standards should apply to an accusation like this. It’s natural to place this sort of accusation within a criminal-justice framework: the burden of proof beyond a reasonable doubt; the presumption of innocence; the right to confront and respond to an accuser. If Judge Kavanaugh stood criminally accused of attempted rape, all of that would apply with full...

    Hypocrites call out scandal to make themselves seem pure, the Pope saidWhile God’s holy church is made up of sinners, it also has its share of hypocrites who love to cry “scandal” to point out the failings of others and make themselves appear pure, Pope Francis said at morning Mass. “The devil doesn’t have anything to do with repentant sinners because they look to God and say, ‘Lord, I’m a sinner. Help me,’ and the devil is impotent,” the Pope said during Mass in the Domus Sanctae Marthae on Thursday. “But with the hypocrites he is strong,” Pope Francis said....

    President Donald Trump on Friday defended his Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who has been accused of sexually assaulting a woman when they were both in high school, appearing to cast doubt on Christine Blasey Ford's claim by demanding to know "why didn't someone call the FBI 36 years ago?" “I have no doubt that, if the attack on Dr. Ford was as bad as she says, charges would have been immediately filed with local Law Enforcement Authorities by either her or her loving parents,” Trump tweeted Friday morning. "The radical left lawyers want the FBI to get involved NOW....

    More than 6-in-10 midterm voters support President Trump’s tariffs on imports, designed to protect American jobs and industry while forcing multinational corporations to bring manufacturing back to the United States. Just as Trump has imposed an additional $200 billion worth of tariffs on foreign products imported from China, about 63 percent of midterm voters said they either support the protective tariffs or would like to give them more time to work. The poll — conducted for the Alliance for American Manufacturing by The Mellman Group, Inc. and Public Opinion Strategies — found overwhelming support for Trump’s economic nationalist agenda among...
