Karen Pence begins teaching at a Virginia school that bans LGBTQ students and employees

Karen Pence, mother wife of Vice President Mike Pence, started a new job this week: a part-time gig as an art teacher at Immanuel Christian School in Virginia, where she previously taught for 12 years. The private Christian school explicitly bans LGBTQ students and employees in the employment application that each staff member must sign and affirm.  I understand that the term “marriage” has only one meaning; the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, exclusive covenant union as delineated in Scripture and that God intends sexual intimacy to occur only between a man and a woman who are married to each other and that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity is engaged in outside of marriage between a man and a woman. Further, I will maintain a lifestyle based on biblical standards of moral conduct. Moral misconduct which violates the bona fide occupational qualifications for employees includes, but is not limited to, such behaviors as the following: heterosexual activity outside of marriage (e.g., premarital sex, cohabitation, extramarital sex), homosexual or lesbian sexual activity, polygamy, transgender identity, any other violation of the unique roles of male and female, sexual harassment, use or viewing of pornographic material or websites, and sexual abuse or improprieties toward minors as defined by Scripture and federal or state law.  Rebecca Klein of The Huffington Post reached out for comment, and Karen Pence’s spokeswoman called inquiries “absurd”:

Shutdown's economic damage is 'a little bit worse' than predicted, Trump economic adviser admits

Whoopsies! It turns out that when Donald Trump’s top economic adviser claimed that the shutdown would cost the economy a mere $1.2 billion a week, “assuming that it ends relatively quickly,” he underplayed things a little bit. Kevin Hassett, the chair of the White House Council of Economic Advisers, is now saying that “the damage is a little bit worse” than he’d previously calculated. Why is it worse? Simple: “actually the damage is a little bit worse because of government contractors, something that was excluded from our first analysis.” Well, yeah. If you exclude some of the economic impact of a shutdown from your analysis of the economic impact of the shutdown, your projections will be optimistic. It’s funny how that works. This keen analysis, by the way, was brought to you by the same guy who thinks federal workers are better off because of the shutdown.

House Democrats call for restoration of provision that allowed Dreamers to travel outside U.S.

Leading House Democrats are supporting an effort to have a provision that previously allowed tens of thousands of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients to travel outside of the U.S. under special circumstances restored by the Trump administration.  Under “advance parole,” DACA recipients could apply for permission from the government to travel internationally in case of family emergencies, illnesses, and educational opportunities, but the process has ground to a halt under the Trump administration, as the DACA program itself remains on in peril in the courts. What’s left is truly a humanitarian tragedy. Unable to leave the U.S. for fear of not being able to return, young immigrants have to watch from afar if a relative outside the country gets sick or dies. Others, such as Jin Park, have made the difficult decision to take the risk in the name of a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. The first-ever DACA recipient to win the prestigious Rhodes scholarship, Park will be going to Oxford in England, despite being unsure if he’ll be allowed back into the U.S. “If I leave,” he said, “there’s a very real possibility that I won’t be able to come back. That’s the biggest fear for sure.” Park, originally from South Korea, is a New Yorker who has called America his home since he was just 7 years old. “I haven’t really thought about what that’s going to mean if I’m not allowed back.” What DACA recipients need is permanent protections, which are supported by the vast majority of Americans. In the meantime, House Democratic leaders are calling on United States Citizenship and Immigration Services to restore advance parole for “humanitarian, labor, and educational purposes.”

Dry-cured ham bones -- a source of heart-healthy peptides?

Drinking bone broth is a recent diet fad that proponents claim fights inflammation, eases joint pain and promotes gut health. Simmering animal bones in water releases collagen and other proteins into the broth that may have health benefits, although more research is needed to validate these claims. Now, a new study has shown that ham bones contain peptides that could have cardioprotective effects.
