Bannon dismissed the far right as irrelevant, Kuttner wrote, quoting the Trump aide as saying: Ethno-nationalism its losers. In the American Prospect story, headlined Steve Bannon, unrepentant, Trumps top aide said: Were at economic war with China. There have been increasing calls from the left and the right for the removal of the former editor of Breitbart News. Im getting Susan Thornton [acting head of east Asian and Pacific affairs] out at state.The State Department and the White House did not immediately respond to requests for comment on Wednesday night. The president tried to downplay Bannons influence on his campaign at the recent press conference, saying, I like Mr Bannon. I am a bot written by a Mathematician Posted at Thu Aug 17 05:00:20 2017
The school has assigned reading I feel is inappropriate for my son to read. How do I approach this problem with the school and with my son?
The school has assigned The Hunger Games as a literature reading assignment for my 11 year old. I read the books and enjoyed the ride, but feel the brutality is too much for this age group, in this package. The book is better suited to at least the middle-school classroom. While some eleven year old children may be able to handle this book, the RL for comprehension is not set to the age of the class to which the book is being assigned. The age listed as the age the book is aimed at is age 13+. A typical class of 11 year olds will have children in it that can comprehend at 13, but it will also have just as many kids who can only comprehend a book written at an RL of 9. Let me clarify: I have no problem with violence as a theme in general and do not wish to hide my child from the concept/theme in literature, but I do have a problem with the brutality in combination with a book that is written for older kids being presented in a classroom setting. I find this book inappropriate for this age group and feel it was really chosen for a "cool factor" rather than because it is appropriate and a well-thought out choice. The plan is for the kids to read the book and then watch the movie at the end of the unit in "celebration" of completing the unit. My son didn't ask to read the book, it was assigned. He is already an avid reader and enjoys reading so engaging him with a book that has a lot of violence, and is above his reading level and he hasn't had an interest in simply because it is "cool" does not interest him or me. Now that it was assigned, he doesn't want to be singled out and I don't want to embarrass him either so what do I do about it? I would have just added this as a comment, but there are already so many, I thought I'd add it here instead. This link will take the reader to a closely associated question about dealing with the same issue but where death is the concern within the book as opposed to violence. I'd like to point out that some of the over-arching themes in the book are complex themes and much more "young adult" as well as political in nature than your average 11 year old will be prepared for. There is a big difference in maturity between 11 and even 13.

May was educated primarily in the state sector but with a short spell at an independent Catholic school. She initially attended Heythrop Primary School, a state school in Heythrop, followed by St. Juliana's Convent School for Girls, a Roman Catholic independent school in Begbroke, which closed in 1984.
Letters to the Editor: Sad to see my school in such a state

After the Editor-in-Chief has had these consultations, perhaps he begins to dictate to his secretary letters to various persons, the secretary taking them down in short-hand, as fast as he can talk, and afterwards copying them out and sending them off. That is the sort of letter-writing which would suit little Nell--just to say off the letter, and not to have to write it--which, in her case, means "printing" it in great, toilsome capitals. After dictating perhaps a dozen letters, it may be that the Editor-in-Chief dictates in the same manner, an editorial article, or some other matter which he wishes to have appear in the paper. Thus he spends several hours--perhaps the whole night--in seeing people, giving directions, dictating letters and articles, laying out new plans, and exercising a general headship over all things.
When the Editor-in-Chief is through with the proofs, perhaps he has a consultation with the Managing Editor--the first editor in authority after him--about some plans for to-night's paper, or for to-morrow, or for next week. Perhaps, then, he summons in the Night Editor. The Night Editor is the man who stays until almost morning, who overlooks everything that goes into the paper, and who puts everything in according to the orders of the Editor-in-Chief, or of the Managing Editor. Well, he tells the Night Editor how he wants to-morrow's paper made, what articles to make the longest, and what ones to put in the most important places in the paper. Then, perhaps, the City Editor comes knocking at the door, and enters, and he and the Editor-in-Chief talk over some stirring piece of city news, and decide what to say in the editorial columns about it.
