Federal Judge Throws Out the Chargaes Against "Far Right" Protesters Who Clashed With Antifa, Noting That the Feds Never Charged Antifa for the Same Crimes | Main | Deadshot Doggie Cafe

Quick This

Biden's Miracle Economy is so great that fast food restaurants are trying to figure out ways to disguise the Bidenflation. Wendy's is now experimenting with having variable prices, with food costing more during peak hours. Though they don't say this, they're doing this so that only people coming in during the lunch and dinner rushes will be hit with the full freight of Biden's hyperinflation. It's an attempt to mitigate customer anger.

DNC Front Group CNN:

The price of a Wendy's Frosty could soon fluctuate throughout the day as the chain looks to introduce Uber-like surge pricing on its menu.

The practice, known as "dynamic pricing," will begin testing in 2025, Wendy's recently revealed in an earnings call. It's part of a $20 million investment in new digital menu boards at its US restaurants that enable them to change prices depending on demand.

Few details were released about the change, but Wendy's CEO Kirk Tanner said the new menus will let the fast food chain test "more enhanced features like dynamic pricing and day-part offerings along with AI-enabled menu changes and suggestive selling."

"We expect our digital menu boards will drive immediate benefits to order accuracy, improve crew experience and sales growth from upselling and consistent merchandising execution," Tanner said on the call.

In a statement Wednesday, Wendy's clarified that "dynamic pricing" will include new menus that could offer discounts at slower times of the day, denying the company will raise prices during peak demand.

Thus, people who are of very limited means and are therefore especially vulnerable to Biden's Predatory Inflation can partly mitigate it by rearranging their eating times.

Another serial plagiarist detected, this time at Columbia University:

The chief diversity, equity, and inclusion officer of Columbia University's medical school, Alade McKen, plagiarized extensively in his doctoral dissertation, lifting entire pages of material, without attribution, from sources that include Wikipedia, according to a complaint submitted to the university on Wednesday.

The allegations implicate approximately a fifth of McKen's 163-page dissertation, "'UBUNTU' I am because we are: A case study examining the experiences of an African-centered Rites of Passage program within a community-based organization," submitted to Iowa State University's School of Education in 2021. More than two of those pages are a near-verbatim facsimile of Wikipedia's entry on "Afrocentric education," which is not cited anywhere in the dissertation.

Other pages lift paragraphs from well-known African scholars, including the University of Rwanda's Chika Ezeanya-Esiobu, while making small tweaks to their prose, such as reordering certain clauses or changing a "were" to a "was."

Some of the scholars McKen allegedly plagiarized appear in the dissertation's bibliography but not in in-text citations. Others, like Ezeanya-Esiobu, an expert on "indigenous knowledge" who has worked with numerous international agencies, including the World Bank, aren't cited at all.

"The passages you shared can definitely be classified as plagiarism," Ezeanya-Esiobu told the Washington Free Beacon. McKen lifts pages worth of material from Ezeanya-Esiobu's 2019 chapter "A Faulty Foundation: Historical Origins of Formal Education Curriculum in Africa," published in the Frontiers in African Business Research book series.

Yes, he's black.

It seems that a lot of black "scholars" are being passed up the ranks through Social Promotion, never actually expected to Read or Write at Grade Level.

Delaying the January 6 trial suppresses critical evidence that Americans deserve to hear. Donald Trump attempted to overturn an election and seize power. Our justice system must be able to bring him to trial before the next election. SCOTUS should decide this case promptly.

Mediaite:

President Joe Biden's appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers did not score a ratings win for the NBC program, particularly with younger viewers.

The Monday night interview with the president brought in some 852,000 average total viewers and 181,000 viewers in the 25-54 age demographic, according to Nielsen Media Research. The demo viewership marked a 32 percent drop compared to the same day last year, which tracks with the show's already declining demo viewership for the year -- down some 10 percent year to date.


Sam Bankman-Fried is asking for a shorter prison term,
citing his autism.

Betcha he'll be granted a sentence reduction!

He also makes a crazy argument that he didn't lose-lose $8 billion in client funds, claiming that was just a "temporary liquidity issue." Now, of course, $8 billion was lost, but he's claiming that the losses only became losses-losses after control of the company was wrested from his corrupt clutches.

Sam Bankman-Fried (SBF) now faces a potential sentencing far below the recommended duration, as his lawyers argue for a prison term of just 5 to 7 years. This plea comes in light of his autism diagnosis, which they propose should be a mitigating factor in his sentencing for fraud convictions related to the collapse of FTX.

SBF's legal team has mounted a defense arguing that the prosecution's portrayal of a massive $8 billion loss to customers is misleading. They claim this figure represents a temporary liquidity shortfall rather than actual financial losses, a situation exacerbated by a surge in withdrawal requests in November 2022. This argument is bolstered by recent statements from a bankruptcy attorney for FTX, suggesting that full repayment to customers and creditors is likely, challenging the narrative of irreversible financial damage.

I'm having trouble believing that. I haven't heard any of his victims expressing new hope that they're getting their money back.


The Bee: 9 Surprising Findings From Joe Biden's Physical:

He arrived with his stool sample already in his pants: The doctor appreciated the president's initiative.

The suspicious mole on his arm turned out to just be melted chocolate ice cream: This was discovered when he licked it off mid-exam.

...


He's under the impression that his wife is a doctor: Poor guy.

...

There are currently three different types of dementia warring for supremacy in his brain: That sounds more like it.

The welcomed demise of Vice.

[T]here was something Vice couldn't buy: profitability.

The company did produce some fascinating content, albeit with a healthy dollop of youthful smugness. When you have a billion dollars to blow without really caring about a profit, that hobby can be quite entertaining.

Its website, however, will also leave us with some of the most ridiculous far-lefty nonsense spewed into the world.

Here is a small sampling of my favorites:

As Vice Media staggers into the sunset, its legacy isn't the edgy content it promised, but rather the shenanigans, debt, and fleeced investors. In the world of media, being the coolest kid in the room doesn't always pay the bills.

Michael Moynihan, who worked at Vice for a while, talks about its failure. He blames the death of Vice on their pursuit of mainstream respectability, which caused them to hire J-school "journalists," who then turned Vice into nothing but woke puritanical scolding and tips about how to tuck your penis.
