A gay high school teacher at Holy Ghost Preparatory Schol in Bensalem, Pennsylvania was fired after the school found out he was applying for a marriage license in his home state of New Jersey.
Michael Griffin was a teacher at the Catholic school for 12 years where he taught French and Spanish, and was also an alumni.
The professor was shocked about his firing considering he was always open about his relationship, however the school claimed the license was a breach of his "teaching contract."
Michael was obviously upset with the school's decision and took to Facebook to share his disappointment:

Former model Sara Ziff is once again fighting for model's rights.
Following the September release of Picture Me, a film that exposed the ugly side of the modeling, Ziff is hard at work developing a code of conduct for models.
The Columbia University senior explains:
"The modeling industry is essentially unregulated. There are no provisions for rest and meal breaks [during work hours]. And a lot of modeling agencies have a huge amount of power over international girls because they sponsor their visas."
Sara is getting some help from Fordham University's Fashion Law Institute and hopes the new code will create a safer working environment for models.
Sounds like a great idea! Hopefully it works.
