'Yanny Or Laurel' Creator Gives The REAL Answer! That Voice Is Saying…

no title

The Yanny/Laurel debate is over!

On Wednesday, after a daylong national debate, Wired found the high school students who first posted the audio clip.

Freshman Katie Hetzel explained she had recorded the voice from a vocabulary site for a school project and found her classmates divided on what it was saying. Then her friend Fernando Castro posted it to his Instagram as a poll, and in turn his friend Roland Szabo posted it to Reddit — from there it got put on Twitter where it quickly went viral.

But the important part? The recording, which is of an opera singer with excellent diction speaking the word aloud for Vocabulary.com, is of the word…

White Yale Grad Student Calls Police On Black Student For SLEEPING IN THE COMMON AREA — And It's All On Film!

no title

You know how every right wing pundit thinks colleges are liberal snowflake safe spaces? Well, think again.

Cuz today we have an example of some good ole Trumpmerica ignorant racism in the freakin' Ive League!

Lolade Siyonbola had fallen asleep while studying in the common area of her campus residence, leading fellow grad student Sarah Braasch to call the police on her!

Um, what?? Did she just see a black woman and immediately think, 'I need an adult'??

When Siyonbola woke to find the philosophy student (because life just has to keep winking at us in 2018) on the phone with the cops, she posted the incident live on her Facebook for both evidence and safety.

Even after finding out this was a fellow student (if she didn't know before), Braasch tells her in no uncertain terms:

We Think Kanye West Just Broke Chrissy Teigen With This Abraham Lincoln Tweet…

no title

Kanye West seems to be overdosing on the Red Pill, and it is boggling Chrissy Teigen's mind.

She isn't the first person to see a friend walk into the bubble of right wing "alternative facts" and become immune to logic or compassion during the rise of Donald Trump, but we don't think it's happened this publicly before.

On Monday, Kanye tweeted out a bit of text convo with some new neo-conservative friend named Steve (Bannon maybe?) who informed him that Abraham Lincoln was actually *gasp* a Republican, a fact that most school children know, which only seems meaningful to the current GOP with no more context or history of the parties' evolutions.

And well, that may have finally broken Chrissy, who responded:

Parkland Students Take To Twitter After Being Given Clear Backpacks Instead Of Gun Control!

Filed under: TwitterTeensEducationalViral: KidsViral: News

no title

Congress can't seem to get its head around passing the common sense gun safety laws approved by the majority of Americans (seriously, some polls have over 90% in favor of universal background checks!).

Instead, students have to deal with school safety "solutions" many consider to be, frankly, a joke.

Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School passed out clear backpacks to its students on Monday, leading many to unleash their frustration with the half-measure on Twitter.

Some were earnest, some sarcastic. Multiple students pointed out their new procedures essentially turned their school into an airport check-in.

Many students decorated their bags with the $1.05 price tags from the March For Our Lives — that's the amount they've calculated Florida Senator Marco Rubio gets from the NRA for each student enrolled in his state.

Twitter reacted with equal parts outrage and hysterics over the news; the latter, thanks to Tyrone's penchant for posting pictures with designer handbags and Gucci swag on social media.

Now, the graduating law student sharing his side of the story — and he says the only thing he's guilty of is rocking a mink coat!

He said to People of the accusations:

Howard University Fired 6 Employees For Allegedly Stealing $1 Million From Financial Aid Funds!

no title

UPDATE 6:50 P.M. EST: Tyrone Hankerson claims complete innocence. Read more HERE!

Need financial aid this semester? Twitter would say you better call Tyrone.

Tyrone Hankerson, that is; one of the six Howard University employees who was allegedly fired last year after an internal investigation found that several employees were stealing grants from the school.

University president Wayne Frederick released a statement on Wednesday confirming an outside auditor found that the financial aid office had misappropriated university-based grants to a number of employees.

Frederick said he was told there may have been "some misappropriation of university-provided financial aid funds" back in December 2016, so he launched an internal investigation.

The auditor found that between 2007 and 2016, several employees who were receiving tuition remission were also awarded university grants that, together, exceeded the cost of tuition. To make matters worse, the grants came from school funds that were supposed to
