YUBA CITY (CBS13) — A 12-year-old girl made one last cry for help before taking her own life, but her parents were never notified. Now, they are accusing a Yuba City middle school of allowing this to happen. They claim the school never notified them of a text message their daughter sent detailing plans to commit suicide. “Heartbreak doesn’t begin to describe what this is. This is desolation,” said Morgan Ocheltree, mother to 12-year-old Madison Ocheltree. The day Madison committed suicide, she turned in all of her homework just like normal. But what seemed fine, really wasn’t.

In quite possibly the coolest field trip in the history of District 218, teachers Joe Ambrosino and Joey Sparenberg took their Advanced Placement Physics students indoor skydiving. The outing to iFly Chicago in Naperville served real purpose. Students participated in an exercise to calculate their own terminal velocity. Terminal velocity is the he constant speed that a freely falling object eventually reaches when the resistance of the medium through which it is falling prevents further acceleration. Before donning iFly suits the students "measured the surface area of their bodies. It is a quantity that they needed to calculate in order to predict the terminal velocity of their bodies. Their terminal velocities were then verified in the wind tunnel," said Sparenberg, who teaches at Shepard High school. Ambrosino and his students from Eisenhower High School accompanied them.Subscribe … [Read more...] about Indoor skydiving and AP Physics In D218
Pamela Karlan’s formidable reputation as a scholar and Supreme Court advocate, coupled with a deep commitment to progressive causes, have made her a leader of the sometimes disorganized liberal legal movement. Her credentials Karlan, 60, received bachelor’s, master’s and law degrees from Yale University and clerked for Justice Harry Blackmun of the Supreme Court. She is now a director of Stanford Law School’s Supreme Court Litigation Clinic. Karlan made regular media appearances discussing the 2000 presidential election and recount, and was one of the authors of “When Elections Go Bad: The Law of Democracy and the Presidential Election of 2000.” During the Obama administration, she worked in the Justice Department’s civil rights division and received the Attorney General’s Award for Exceptional Service, the highest award employees there can earn. She has also worked on the California Fair Political Practices Commission and for the NAACP … [Read more...] about Who Is Pamela Karlan? Legal Leader Committed to Progressive Causes
Cory Booker hasn’t gotten his respect. Photo: Ethan Miller/Getty Images One of the abiding mysteries of the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination contest is why New Jersey senator Cory Booker has never emerged as a serious threat to the many people running ahead of him in the polls. It’s not that he’s made any big mistakes. He has probably been the most consistently solid performer in the four rounds of candidate debates. He’s followed the book in building a formidable organization in Iowa. And as Michelle Goldberg noted back in August, he’s just a great candidate on paper: If you were cooking up a candidate in a lab to take on Donald Trump, you might come up with someone a lot like Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey. (Well, except for the unmarried vegan part.) Like Pete Buttigieg, Booker was a Rhodes scholar and the dynamic mayor of a city afflicted by industrial decline, and unlike Buttigieg, he’d be sure to increase African-American turnout. … [Read more...] about Can Cory Booker Revive His Flagging Campaign?
