I don't see the controversy here. Anglo-Saxons never existed as a distinct ethnic group. It is a linguistic group. While there is only minor genetic variations between White Europeans, there are significant linguistic differences.Majik » Yesterday, 4:49 pm » wrote: ↑
Cambridge University is teaching students that the Anglo-Saxons never existed as a distinct ethnic group, in an effort to “dismantle the… myths” of English nationalism, the Telegraph reported on Saturday. Liberal academics have long decried the term for its association with “whiteness.”Cambridge’s Department of Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic (ASNC) will seek “to dismantle the basis of myths of nationalism – that there ever was a ‘British’, ‘English’, ‘Scottish’, ‘Welsh’ or ‘Irish’ people with a coherent and ancient ethnic identity – by showing students just how constructed and contingent these identities are and always have been,” the British newspaper reported, citing information from the university.By denigrating the idea of a distinct Anglo-Saxon identity, the university said that it aims to make its teaching more “anti-racist.”The controversy over the term ‘Anglo-Saxon’ began in 2019, when Canadian academic Dr Mary Rambaran-Olm resigned from the International Society of Anglo-Saxonists over the “inherent whiteness” of the field. Rambaran-Olm, who is not white, went on to write that “the Anglo-Saxon myth perpetuates a false idea of what it means to be ‘native’ to Britain,” and that the term is “historically inaccurate.”
The society changed its name to the International Society for the Study of Early Medieval England, but some academics were furious, describing the controversy as an attempt to impose American racial identity politics onto a British field of study. “The conditions in which the term is encountered, and how it is perceived, are very different in the USA from elsewhere,” 70 historians wrote in an open letter in 2020.“It’s a continuation of what’s been going on for some years, where pride in national identity is being attacked,” political commentator Anthony Webber told RT. Pointing out that the modern-day English owe a third of their ancestry to the Anglo-Saxons, he added: “I don't think it serves the cause of anti-racism to suddenly make sections of the population feel that they shouldn’t be proud of their background.”Historically, the Anglo-Saxon period denotes the time between around 450 and 1066 AD. During this period, Germanic peoples – Angles, Saxons, and Jutes – arrived in Britain and established kingdoms that were consolidated into the Kingdom of England by Athelstan of Wessex in 927. This period saw the development of the first iteration of the English language and the creation of epic poems like Beowulf and Waldere.So influential were the Anglo-Saxons on modern British and American culture that the French and Russians use the term as shorthand for English-speaking elites on both sides of the Atlantic.

No one is boycotting Anheuser-Busch InBev or Target. We just don't want to drink Queer-Beer or buy rainbow-clothes that say "A Brown Eye For A Hard Guy".Punch » 33 minutes ago » wrote: ↑

Jordan Peterson Weighs In on Target, Anheuser-Busch Boycotts (msn.com)
Jordan Peterson has openly mocked Anheuser-Busch and Target for the losses they're facing as a result of the customer boycotts.Bud Light, owned by Anheuser-Busch InBev, and superstore chain Target are facing public boycotts as a result of backlash relating to the transgender and LGBTQ+ community.The boycotts against both companies have resulted in a loss in earnings and market cap, with social media figure and psychologist Peterson calling for people to "take them to zero."Bud Light's boycott, and by extension some other brands owned by Anheuser-Busch InBev, began in early April after transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney was sent a personalized can to celebrate one year of her living as a woman. The backlash against Bud Light has been running for over two months now, with examples of people dodging the brand often going viral online. Recent figures show that shares in the company slumped by 5.2 percent in the last week of May, wiping more than $4 billion off the company's value.
Peterson jumped on the criticism of the companies, sharing graphs showing Target lost $10 billion off its market cap in 10 days, while Anheuser-Busch lost $27 billion in two months. Both graphs were initially published via a Daily Mail article."A cautionary tale for what happens when your 'woke' VP for marketing [Alissa Heinerscheid] gets a mandate from her 'woke' corporate bosses to insult your product's customer base & take your ad campaign in 'another direction."
He called out a video of a Pride parade featuring people marching in bondage gear, dog masks and chains as "exhibitionistic narcissists." In another video blog, he claimed "the gay community was a hell of a lot better off when they were oppressed by the heterosexual monogamists than when they're allied with the trans activists."

Ramsey's "investment" system is for people who are in debt with no savings or investments, but have jobs. And, for that group, his advice is fairly sound. Also, Ramsey does not give stock advice.roadkill » Today, 10:43 am » wrote: ↑
I think the best way to invest is to do yer own research on publicly traded companies...and DON'T get emotional...greed will do that.
Research a company's share structure...outstanding shares, short %, float, sector, etc. Pull up a stock chart to view the history of the stock price performance. Never use charts to predict future performance. A broker told me that. He does his research first, then checks the chart to see if his research is consistent with the past performance.
Years ago a wise old boy said be careful when trading stocks. He said, "I'd rather miss a chance at a profit than lose my principle." Keep emotions out of it.
P.S. Almost all penny stocks are scams.
PSS. Always look for the negatives in a company...that's what might jump up and bite. The positives will take care of themselves.

No, I don't recall that. But, they did get rid of their free-weight benches and barbells because "that wasn't the crowd they were catering to".If I'm not mistaking, I remember reading stories about them denying membership to people who are too muscular and intimidating looking.
I go there for the weights and the machines. Not for any social hour. Its what I have to choose from in the locations I happen to frequent. I am looking for a better alternative.I'd rather weigh 600lb than be caught dead working out in a place like that.

I have had to fire employees and occasionally UI comes up. One time I had to fire someone because I found out she was drunk on the job. Her medical doctor divulged this to me because she called me from a hospital for me to give her a ride back to her car. Long story, but I fired her the next day. I reported the reason I fired her was because she was drunk. So, the unemployment office scheduled a hearing to determine whether she was eligible for unemployment benefits. It went something like this:RedheadedStranger » 01 Jun 2023, 1:29 pm » wrote: ↑
My basic understanding is that 1) You have to be actively seeking work to get it, and 2) it's based on how much you have worked and/or made prior to filing.
It's also my understanding that it depends on how you found yourself unemployed... like if you quit, then your not eligible. I've heard that an employer can dispute the claim as well, but I'm not sure on that part.

You are a true ****. You only mention half of what takes place. The Federal Reserve digitally debits and credits commercial banks with "money" which banks in turn use make loans to individuals and companies. The Fed creates or contracts the money supply and uses banks to get the new money out to the public through new loans. Banks are simply a conduit for the Fed to adjust the money supply. However, it doesn't always work that way. One example is Investment Banks, which can and do make loans off of private money. So can commercial banks, but they don't do that much anymore.peepee » 01 Jun 2023, 6:49 am » wrote: ↑
Do Banks Create New Money When They Loan? Yes, banks create new money when they make loans. This is done through accounting entries when a bank makes a loan and creates a deposit account.
