Did Obama’s Teleprompter Gets Stuck on Stutter Going After Trump?
Obama Tries to Trash Donald Trump and Turns into a Stuttering Mess
– Apparently Obama’s teleprompter got stuck while he tried to wing it, or he read it ver-ver-ver-batim.

UCLA SHOOTING: ANOTHER GUN FREE ZONE
Victim disarmament policy claims more lives
“At least two people were killed during a shooting on UCLA campus today in yet another victim disarmament gun free zone.
“A UCLA police spokesperson said officers responded to an engineering lab and asked students to go to a secure location after the campus-wide alert system issued a notification,” reports NBC News.
According to California state law, gun ownership is strictly regulated on the campus of UCLA.
Under Penal Code 626.9 PC, known as California’s Gun-Free School Zone Act, which was enacted in 1995, students are prohibited from carrying a gun within 1,000 feet of school grounds.
UCLA’s own campus policy also, “Prohibits the transportation and possession of firearms and other dangerous weapons on the grounds of UCLA campus, off-campus buildings owned or operated by the University, areas adjacent to University Property or to activities of or programs conducted by the University, whether on or off University Property.”
In October last year, California Gov. Jerry Brown also signed into law SB707, which banned students from carrying concealed weapons on school grounds and college campuses.”

Two reported dead in murder-suicide on UCLA campus
– Daily Bruin
“Two people died in a murder-suicide at UCLA’s Engineering IV building early Wednesday, police said.
The shooting took place in a small office around 10 a.m., said Los Angeles Police Department Chief Charlie Beck at a press conference. Both the shooter and another person died at the scene.
Several news agencies reported William Klug, a UCLA mechanical and aerospace engineering professor, was killed in the shooting.
The shooter, a male adult, was found dead with a gun. Officials said they could not release more information about the shooter’s identity.
The campus wide lock down was lifted around noon, and most buildings reopened around 12:10 p.m. Officials instructed people to avoid Westwood Plaza.
Police began to let people into the Engineering IV building to reclaim their belongings at about 2 p.m. Officers said they will let students out of the building after they have cleared each floor.
UCLA officials canceled all Wednesday classes.
Elaheh Alizadehbirjandi, a graduate student in mechanical engineering, said she heard people yelling in the hallway when she arrived to work on the fourth floor of the Engineering IV building at about 9:40 a.m.
She said she heard people tell a man to drop his gun and turn himself in, and locked herself in her office.
Officials sent a Bruin Alert at about 9:50 a.m. to instruct students and faculty to stay in secure locations and lock buildings and classrooms.
LAPD Capt. Andy Neiman said the initial emergency call, which came shortly after 10 a.m., reported three shots heard with possible casualties. He added police prepared to respond to an isolated shooting, but a flood of additional callers prompted involvement from multiple law enforcement and emergency agencies in the area, including UCPD, LAPD, LA Fire Department, California Highway Patrol and the FBI.
Jenny Hu, a second-year financial and actuarial math student, said she was in a computer science lab on the second floor of the Mathematical Sciences building when she received the notification.
“It was a really tense moment, and nobody knew what to do,” she said. “We locked all the doors, shut off computer monitors and turned off the lights.”
Duy Ngo, a fourth-year biochemistry student, said classmates tied a wire to the door to prevent people from entering their classroom in W. G. Young Hall. Ngo said about 10 armed police officers forced entry into the room without announcing their presence, so students were unsure whether they were shooters or police.
“I immediately put my hands up because I didn’t want to get shot at,” Ngo said.”

Federal prosecutors seek to seize San Bernardino Terrorist attacker’s life insurance policies worth 275k
“Federal prosecutors on Tuesday filed a lawsuit to seize payments on life insurance policies taken out by San Bernardino shooter Syed Rizwan Farook in the years before the December attacks.
The U.S. attorney’s office in Los Angeles filed the civil asset forfeiture lawsuit for the two policies worth a total of $275,000.
Farook took out the two policies, one worth $25,000 in 2012 and the other, worth $250,000, in 2013, prosecutors said.
His mother was named as beneficiary of both policies. Farook’s wife, Tashfeen Malik, died with him in a shootout with authorities after the Dec. 2 attack during which they shot and killed 14 people.
The U.S. attorney’s office says that under federal law, assets derived from terrorism against the United States are subject to forfeiture. The lawsuit seeks to seize both the proceeds and the policies themselves.
“Terrorists must not be permitted to provide for their designated beneficiaries through their crimes,” U.S. Attorney Eileen M. Decker said. “My office intends to explore every legal option available to us to ensure these funds are made available to the victims of this horrific crime. We will continue to use every tool available to seek justice on behalf of the victims.”

IT layoffs at insurance firm are a ‘never-ending funeral’
Workers train replacements as some IT duties shift overseas
“The IT layoffs at MassMutual Financial Group will happen over a period of many months, and it’s going to be painful for employees.
Employees say they are training overseas workers via Web conferencing sessions. There are contractors in the office as well, some of whom may be working on temporary H-1B visas. Employees say they notice more foreign workers in the hallways.
Approximately 100 employees are affected. They work in IT support and infrastructure, which includes managing operating systems, virtualization, databases and other systems.
The employees are angry but can’t show it. A loss of composure, anything other than quiet acquiescence, means risking two weeks of severance pay for each year on the job. But maintaining composure is hard to do.
“I know a few people that are probably close to a breakdown,” said one IT employee.
Many employees are over the ages of 40 and 50, and have worked for years at the firm. Some have been rebadged to Cognizant Technology Solutions, a U.S.-based IT services contractor and major user of H-1B visa workers. Most of the layoffs are expected to take place between June and October, say employees, but the company put the entire process at around 18 months.
A second IT employee described the emotional impact of the layoffs on employees in this way: “It’s like a never-ending funeral.”
Two MassMutual employees were contacted directly by Computerworld. A third was reached through Sara Blackwell, a Florida labor attorney, who began hearing from MassMutual employees before the layoffs were officially announced. None of the employees wanted to be identified by name.
When local Massachusetts media first reported the layoffs in early April, MassMutual didn’t disclose the name of the contractor, or explain that some of the work was moving overseas. Employees have had to sign nondisclosure agreements as part of their severance, and were told not to talk to outsiders. These kinds of gag orders have been criticized by lawmakers.”

Washington State to Teach Transgenderism to Kindergartners
“By fall 2017 Washington state public schools will begin teaching gender expression to kindergarteners under newly-approved health education learning standards that designate sexual health a “core idea” of public K-12 education.
While some aspects of sexual health aren’t taught K-12 (HIV prevention begins in fourth grade), one component of sexual health titled “Self-Identity” begins in kindergarten, where students will be expected to “Understand there are many ways to express gender.”
The state’s health education glossary defines gender as “A social construct based on emotional, behavioral, and cultural characteristics attached to a person’s assigned biological sex.” Gender expression, meanwhile, is defined as “The way someone outwardly expresses their gender.”
These definitions differ from the state’s definition of “biological sex”: “Based on chromosomes, hormones, and internal and external anatomy.”
