Item North Carolina Elementary Teachers Struggle To Pass Math Portion Of Licensing Exam

The Charlotte Observer reports that nearly half of newly hired teachers in North Carolina failed to pass the math portion of a licensing exam which is required for them to keep their jobs. Some teachers claim the problem isn’t with them but with the test itself which includes middle school and high school math problems. Last month the Board of Education granted new teachers on an additional year to pass the test…

A 19% pass rate is pretty awful for college educated people.

This, it is thought, is a sample test (pdf). Readers here could pass even without lead in their Dr Grip pencils. We haven’t heard yet (and I haven’t looked) to see criticisms about racism, etc.

Item Adult Swim’s ‘Rick and Morty’ Co-Creator Depicts Children Being Raped, Tortured, and Killed

Nope, not Dan Harman, the co-creator of “Rick and Morty,” who filmed himself raping a babydoll. The other co-creator, Justin Roiland, is now embroiled in his own child rape scandal. Roiland made a cartoon, posted on his website, about raping, torturing, and killing children. It’s so graphic we can’t show it here. If you want to watch it (which I don’t recommend), it’s at this link. The cartoon begins with two young boys who decide to go for a swim in the ocean naked.

It starts in the pits and only goes downhill from there. Which you wouldn’t think possible—since it started in the pits. But it did. Don’t click on the link. I can’t think of anybody who would be saddened to learn Hollywood fell into the sea with a milestone around its neck.

Item I feel pretty — and confident. A straight man’s adventure with makeup.

I wonder if everyone at this bar thinks I look like a geisha — a dude geisha. Are the other patrons sneaking glances at me, judging the guy alone in a booth? I’ve come prepared for a date, dressed in the standard-issue San Francisco uniform: dark jeans, desert boots, crisp button-down. I’ve also added the sheen of makeup on my face.

The girl I’m meeting is late…Is there now going to be a line on the side of my face? Also how does this foundation look in this dim lighting? To my date, will I resemble a 9-year-old girl who got a hold of her mother’s makeup kit, or a responsible 29-year-old man who pays rent and appreciates rye whiskey? I weigh the benefits of verifying that I look fabulous by whipping out my cellphone camera, but what if my date walks in and sees me doing so?

Washington Post, friends. The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God. Unless it’s to feel pretty.

Item The Rise And Rise Of The UK’s Student Sugar Babies

A growing number of students are turning to sex work to fund their studies as they struggle to cope with increasing debt and living costs, a new student finance survey has revealed.

BuzzFeed News spoke to student sex workers who said that they had developed sugar daddy relationships or taken to selling intimate pictures and videos online because their maintenance loans fail to cover their day-to-day expenses.

Save the Student’s national student money survey, released last week, has found that 3% of UK students are financing their studies with adult work, rising to 4% when faced with a cash crisis….

For some students, sugar daddies are less of a necessity and more a means to enjoying a better lifestyle at university, allowing them to travel, go out partying more often, and live in better accommodation than many of their peers. However, others sell sex as a way to survive.

There was an older word used for women who sold themselves for cash to spend on frivolities. Can’t recall it now. Nobody can, evidently.

One woman, who would have in olden days been called this now-forgotten name, for it would have been accurate, as it still is, if we could only remember it

With help from a ‘sugar daddy’, I could go partying every weekend, travel to different states, shop regularly, and eat out in the city three to four times a week if I wanted. I sort of became accustomed to that standard of living and it quickly became apparent that I wouldn’t be able to afford the same thing in London without some ‘aid’.

That darn word. What was it?
