Defiant Teacher Dismissed For Not Unfriending Students On Facebook Look At The Negative

April 8, 2014

They’ve taught me as much as I’ve taught them,” says Carol Thebarge of her students over the past 30 years. A popular substitute in New Hampshire high schools, Thebarge was dismissed this week after refusing to comply with the school’s social media policy, which requires teachers to not be friends with students on Facebook. Thebarge, who turns 80 in July, has been on Facebook for five years. Many of her friends are students.I am like a grandmother to these kids and I am not giving it up.”
But on the negative defiant older male Facebook Friend  teachers could be creepy.



Ask The Eye, Parents Of The Bride Work Hard For The Money

July 5, 2013

Dear Eye View, My partner and I recently got engaged and have begun the wedding planning. While we both agree that we would prefer a low-key, inexpensive event, some amount of money is still going to be spent, and we are having trouble raising the funds on our own. I know that it is typical for the father of the bride to pay for the majority of the expenses, but being that there is no bride, this makes things more difficult. My fiancé’s parents are well off and very supportive, but my own parents, especially my father, are not as well off. My question is: How do I go about asking either parent for financial support for this wedding? If I want this wedding to go the way I’d like, I need some type of financial aid. Gay marriage is fairly new, so there doesn’t seem to be any precedent set for this.

—Overwhelmed Grooms-to-Be


I understand your concern.The Supreme Court, in their  decisions about gay marriage, neglected to address the pressing issue of just who is going to pay for them.  Since many wedding rituals come from the time when women were handed over from their fathers to their husbands, gay and lesbian couples who marry have a chance to help blow up these anachronistic assumptions—including that the bride’s family pays. It’s great if any engaged couple has parents who are willing and able to help underwrite the celebration. What’s not great is for people old enough to get married to pressure their aging parents to jeopardize their own bank accounts to pay for your party. You say your parents are of limited means. That means you don’t hit them up to pay for a wedding you can’t afford. After all someday you may be in their shoes… Unless they make you fall down,     Hope this helps



Robin Williams Leaving Napa Valley, Voting On New California Tax Increase With Happy Feet

April 30, 2013

Hollywood comedian Robin Williams is interested in selling his massive Napa Valley estate, Villa Sorriso. The villa is on 653 acres and includes a 20,000-square-foot main house; solar farm; and 18 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc grapes. Villa Sorriso is built atop the Mayacama Mountains, which separate the Napa and Sonoma valleys. The five-bedroom, 12-bathroom Italian villa was designed by David Gast & Associates and is faced with Portuguese limestone. The home was originally listed in August with a price of $35 million, though it was recently reduced to $29.9 million.

21- Year Old High School Student James Nash Tries Football Do Over To Recapture His Best Of Times

November 11, 2012

Each year there are a handful of troubling transfer stories, with players who parachute into a new school for athletic benefit rather than academic enhancement.  Still, none of those transfers, not even the most troubling, can compare with the story of Javier Jones of Mount Pleasant (Mich.) High, for a simple reason: Javier Jones never even existed.

That’s not to say that there wasn’t a person wearing a football jersey and competing as a human being named Javier Jones. It’s simply that the aforementioned player was actually a 21-year-old named James Nash, masquerading as a high school senior to try and tap back into one last rush of glory.
