Today I woke up earlier than usual but couldn't go back to sleep, so I checked my V. A. C or Virtual Alarm Clock. It said that today’s high would be 54 and reminded me the date September 13th, 2058. It was just going to be another ordinary day at Prairie View Middle School, with the exception of my best friend Lillian’s birthday. Once I got inside my house I immediately peeked through the curtain, at first I didn’t see anyone and then I saw a tall, dark shadow of a man walking the opposite way. Down the road I followed this “shadow man” all the way down what I thought for sure was a dead end. A long trench about 4 feet deep that was right in the middle of my walking area was my landing spot, right on my face. “Ouch” I hit something metal, looked down and saw an old, rusted black box. I picked the box up and was so fascinated by it’s strange musty feeling, but I knew I had to get out first. I jumped 3 times and eventually crawled out with the box in my right hand. I ran home faster than lightning,so intrigued by this unrevealed box. Once I got home I pondered for some time on how to open the box, this small key hole would be impossible to open I thought. I took off my necklace and held my breath as I put the key in the box, “Click” the box had opened.
Rachel Beyda, a Jewish sophomore student who was a candidate for the student council’s judicial board, was interrogated and initially rejected by fellow students solely because she was a member of Jewish organizations—something that supposedly... ” After a faculty advisor admonished the council for their foolish “conflict of interest” objection, she was then voted in. The students who voted against her tendered a notapology, and Gene Block, the UCLA chancellor, offered lukewarm sympathies... To wind up this tale, Steve Lubet, a law professor at Northwestern here in Chicago, did some further digging, and found that Beyda’s initial rejection was part of a wider pattern of anti-Jewish discrimination at UCLA. This is part of what Lubet posted at The Faculty Lounge (I’ve bolded a bit that shows the hypocrisy of students singling out Beyda for her religion):. Rather, they were the predictable upshot of a political situation at UCLA that has become increasingly hostile for many Jewish students. For the past year, there has been a concerted effort at UCLA to rid the student government of anyone who might be insufficiently antagonistic toward Israel, which was seen as necessary to the passage of a BDS (boycott, divestment, sanctions)...
We got there just in time for the first official day of TET, which was made complete by the carnival, extensive markets, and fireworks display at midnight. Hoi An is known as the lantern city, and on TET this means you make a wish on a lantern and then float it down the river. We stayed at a little guesthouse in Hoi An called Mrs. Flowers, and it was in fact run by Mrs. The first full day we were in Hoi An, they offered to make us lunch since most places were closed for TET. I naively started off the lunch hopeful, the food looked good and Mr. Flowers had supplied each of us with a beer. But then the beer started to flow freely, and not because we wanted it to. Every few minutes, Mr. Flowers would disappear into the kitchen and return with a handful of beers, refilling everyone’s glasses even if you had only taken a sip. But the real kicker was that Mr. Flowers couldn’t speak or understand English, so telling him to stop was out of the question, and the only way he could contribute to the conversation was by yelling “yooo” which is how they cheers in Vietnam. Hoi An is full of little coffee shops around every turn, so we made it a mission to find the best iced coffee.
