Chemistry teacher arrested after bringing ‘date rape’ drug recipe to school -

CONROE, Texas – A  Texas high school chemistry teacher was busted at school for allegedly carrying a backpack with recipes to make date rape drugs.

daterapeteacherOak Ridge High School teacher Haivan Bui was arrested at school after deputies searched her apartment and allegedly found recipes to make date rape drugs, as well as marijuana, methamphetamines, prescription medication, and compounds used to make the date rape concoction, KHOU reports.

Police contend that officers also found date rape recipes in her backpack when she was arrested Friday, according to the new site.

“It was kind of crazy. Everyone was like, maybe it’s drugs, and it was,” student Armando Sanchez told KHOU.

Boi, who also teaches at Lone Star College, was charged with possession with intent to deliver or manufacture a controlled substance, while her husband, who was home during the police search, was also arrested for possession and for being a felon in possession of a firearm, according to news reports.

Sanchez told the news site the teacher didn’t show up for his last period chemistry class, and another teacher informed students Bui was arrested.

“She was really nice,” he said. “I think she was a good teacher.”

Many are thinking, she didn’t seem like the teacher who would do something like that,” senior Nicholas Marron told KHOU. “We couldn’t believe … what was happening.”

School officials sent an email to parents:

“There is no reason to believe that any illegal activity took place at the campus at this time,” principal Tommy Johnson wrote. “We are very disappointed and want to assure you that we are committed to providing a safe learning environment for our students. We will remain vigilant in investigating any and all reports that might affect the well-being of students or staff.”

KHOU reports Bui has worked for the Conroe Independent School District since 2013.

Neighbors at Bui’s Woodlands apartment complex told the news site they initially thought police made a mistake.

“She seemed normal, like a normal neighbor,” Karen Cox said.

“They didn’t look like the type of people who would do that,” Woodlands resident Curneesha Hammonds told Houston news station KPRC.

“Maybe they’re trying to be the new ‘Breaking Bad,’” said Phyullis Hannon, another resident in the apartment complex. “He was a chemistry teacher on the show, too.”

It’s Only Kinda Gonna Maybe Be Combat | The Blog on Obama: White House Dossier

Poor President Obama. He’s trying so hard not to have a war. War is so George W. Bush. Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize. He learned all about Republican warmongers in college and, over bong hits with his poli sci professor, discussed how he was so much better than nutjobs like Ronald Reagan who would invade Granada and finance the Contras and so forth.

But now there are these bad guys in Iraq WHO WON’T LISTEN TO REASON and who want to hurt Americans. And the Iraqi army is too pitiful to defeat them. And so Obama had to send over American troops. But, goodness, they’re only going to offer “advice,” like, Hey, you point the barrel of the gun away from you. Stuff like that. But no combat! That’s for people like Bush and Reagan.

But, whoa, Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Martin Dempsey today told the Senate Armed Services Committee that maybe these advisors are going … into battle! Now they’ll have to offer other advice, like Look out! and Duck!

Or maybe even … I got this … 

Said Dempsey:

If we reach the point where I believe our advisors should accompany Iraq troops on attack against specific ISIL targets I’ll recommend that to the president.

Google Has Been Tracking Your Every Move, And There’s A Website To Prove It

google map 1

Remember that scene in Minority Report, where Tom Cruise is on the run from the law, but is unable to avoid detection because everywhere he goes there are constant retina scans feeding his location back to a central database? That’s tomorrow. Today, Google is tracking wherever your smartphone goes, and putting a neat red dot on a map to mark the occasion.

You can find that map here. All you need to do is log in with the same account you use on your phone, and the record of everywhere you’ve been for the last day to month will erupt across your screen like chicken pox.

google example

We all know that no matter what ‘privacy’ settings you may try and implement, our information is all being collected and stored somewhere. That knowledge sits in the back of our minds, and is easy to drown out by shoving in some headphones and watching Adventure Time on repeat until everything stops being 1984.  But it’s a sharp jolt back to reality when you see a two dimensional image marking your daily commute with occasional detours to the cinema or a friend’s house.

Looking at mine, I realised that a) I live my life in a very small radius, and b) there are places on my map that I don’t remember going. One of them I’ve apparently visited three times on different days. Once whilst “Biking” and twice while “Stationary”. All at times I wouldn’t usually be awake. I’m not sure what’s happening on Wood Street in North Melbourne, or why my phone apparently travels there without me, but I’m not going to rule out secret alien conspiracies.

This never happened. UNLESS IT DID.

Apparently this record only happens if you have ‘location services’ switched on in your phone; if you do and you’re finding you have no data, then it means that either you don’t exist or you’ve beaten the system. If it’s the latter, please teach me your ways; I know for a fact that I switched my phone’s location detection off, but apparently it somehow got switched back on.

 Oh well. Perhaps this month I’ll take some inspiration from the runner who used Nike+ to draw this – except this time when the dots are joined, they’ll just form a huge, unblinking eye. With occasional side trips to Wood Street.


Doug Ross @ Journal: How Democrats Destroyed the Senate to Stack the Federal Courts with Radical Leftists

by Elizabeth Slattery

In President Barack Obama’s second term, the Senate has confirmed more than twice the number of judicial nominees than were confirmed in President George W. Bush’s second term. This is due mostly to the fact that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., succeeded in eliminating the filibuster for judicial nominees (excluding the Supreme Court, at least for now) in November 2013.

In this post-filibuster world, it’s a relatively easy task to push through almost any nominee—even those (such as now-First Circuit Judge David Barron) who were opposed by some Democrats. But Republicans could stop this trend if they take the Senate in the upcoming election.

United offers up to $100,000 if workers leave - Business -

CHICAGO - United Airlines says it will offer flight attendants up to $100,000 in severance if they leave the company.

The lump-sum payments will be offered in order of seniority to some of United’s 23,000 flight attendants.

United and the Association of Flight Attendants announced the deal on Monday.

United says the early-outs will help it match staffing to its flight schedule and produce a labor contract with the union.

Airlines and other companies have used early-out bonuses to entice employees to leave voluntarily. If enough employees accept, it can reduce or avoid layoffs and remove senior, more-expensive employees from the payroll.

Booted from Obamacare: 115K could lose coverage

Up to 115,000 people stand to lose Obamacare health insurance coverage by Sept. 30, and another 336,000 people are at risk of losing federal subsidies to pay for that coverage, officials revealed Monday.

The 115,000 people failed to show valid proof of citizenship or legal residency for the insurance plans they bought through, a top federal official revealed Monday.

But the Obama administration also said those people with questionable eligibility will be able to keep their coverage if they continue paying their premiums, provide documentation showing their legal status in the U.S., and sign up again in their health plans during a special enrollment period.

If they don’t, “at the end of September, they’ll be terminated,” said Andy Slavitt, principal deputy administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Many of those people also will face demands from the Internal Revenue Service that they repay federal subsidies they received this year to help them pay for their health insurance plans.

The administration also said it was warning another 336,000 people they need to provide proof of income by Sept. 30, or risk losing those federal subsidies that reduce—often greatly—what they personally pay in monthly insurance premiums.

Without documentation, as of Nov. 1, the subsidies will be changed to reflect the income data that the federal government has about the households in question, Slavitt said. CMS was sending reminder letters to those people Monday.

Those people comprise 279,000 households whose enrollment information, when they applied for Obamacare via, contained claims about income that did not match other data the federal government has about them. is the insurance marketplace that sells insurance in the 36 states not running their own health exchange.


At least 150 companies prep for carbon prices


At least 150 major companies worldwide — including ExxonMobil, Google, Microsoft and 26 others in the United States — are already making business plans that assume they will be taxed on their carbon pollution, a report out today says.

The U.S. has yet to impose a price on heat-trapping carbon dioxide emissions, but other nations are starting to do so as a way to address global warming, so U.S.-based companies are factoring an eventual one into their plans, says the international non-profit CDP, formerly known as the Carbon Disclosure Project. The report is the group’s first one to look at corporate carbon pricing on a global scale.

"We’re seeing companies taking steps they’re not required to, and they’re doing this to be competitive in a carbon-constrained world," says Zoe Antitch, spokeswoman of CDP North America, noting many do business in multiple countries. "They’re looking ahead. … They’re climate ready."

The report comes one week before leaders of 100-plus countries convene Sept. 23 in New York City for the United Nations’ Climate Summit, at which leaders of many nations and corporations are expected to announce their plans to reduce carbon emissions.The World Bank is calling for carbon pricing as a key strategy.

"A price on carbon creates incentives," Rachel Kyte, the World Bank Group’s special envoy for climate change, told reporters last week. By hiking the price of fossil fuels such as oil and coal, which emit the most carbon dioxide when burned, she said it spurs investments in energy efficiency and non-polluting renewable power such as solar and wind. She said Canada’s British Columbia has had a “revenue-neutral” carbon tax since 2008, and its CO2 emissions have fallen while its economy has grown.

Yet in the U.S., some business leaders and GOP members of Congress remain opposed to taxing carbon emissions, saying it could raise consumer prices for energy. They helped defeat President Obama’s legislative push for a national cap-and-trade system in which overall emissions are capped but companies that exceed the limits can buy emission credits from those that emitted less.

So Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency, acting without Congress, proposed in June to cut carbon emissions from existing U.S. power plants 30% by 2030. The EPA rule would allow states to meet varying reduction targets by closing coal-fired power plants, saving energy, using more renewable power or forming regional cap-and-trade programs.
