Bebe Rexha Apologises After Motivational Story About Overcoming Bullies Backfires

Bebe Rexha Apologises After Motivational Story About Overcoming Bullies Backfires

Bebe Rexha has apologised after her motivational story about overcoming bullies led to backlash from her fans.
The 29-year-old singer found herself targeted by haters after she took to Twitter to share the first line from a song she'd just written, "No one dies a virgin cause life f**ks us all".
Referencing the fact that the line is actually a quote from late singer Kurt Cobain, one of Bebe's followers replied: "i cannot stand this b**ch lmaoo (laugh my a*s off) kurt cobain and tumblr 2012 says hi."
But unwilling to take the criticism, Bebe replied: "1st of all you can put a quote in a song. And 2nd I’ll probably make millions off of it in my song."
The American star then used the exchange to recall her experience with haters and bullies.
"Sometimes haters are so f**kin annoying and they hurt my feelings but sometimes it’s fun And entertaining. Not gonna lie,” she wrote. "I was bullied by this girl in school and I cried every single day. Then recently I went to get a burger and I go to order and guess who took it? Just keep going. All bullies will be serving you burgers one day... I said extra pickles please."
One Twitter user then responded to tell Bebe that "simple work does not mean that you are a loser".
And the Last Hurrah star tweeted: "I agree with that. My bad. You’re right. I use to sell perfumes to really rich people when I started. I guess that’s an Old way of thinking and im still kinda scarred and hurt by her. Success is different for everyone.
“What I’m learning is you can’t make everyone happy. People are gonna ALWAYS gonna talk s**t so you might as well say what you wanna say and do what you wanna do. As long as you purposely dont do anything to hurt anyone. Anyways moral of the story is. #1 Don’t be mean to yourself. #2 Don’t be mean to others."
Bebe then decided to delete her initial tweet about the burger server, explaining: "I took down my bully tweet. It came off the wrong way. I was just trying to say that bullying ain’t right. And the kids in school really made me feel like I would never be anything in my life And I felt like I proved them wrong... But I worded my tweet wrong and I’ll try again tomorrow. Sorry. Love you lots."

Some Are In 'cages.' Others Sleep On Concrete. Sick, Hungry Migrant Children Aren't Only Just In Notorious Texas Facility

Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar is calling on Congress to come up with a "unified package" to help fund the care of unaccompanied children being held at the southern border. (June 24) AP, AP
MEXICALI, Mexico -- Alba Macario of Guatemala said her 2-year-old daughter Suriana nearly died while they were detained in a processing facility in Calexico, California, for more than a week in May.
“The immigration officials treat people as if they are animals,” said Macario, 25, Tuesday as she sat on the floor of a shelter in in Mexicali, weeks after she had been released by U.S. authorities and sent back to Mexico. “I saw how my daughter almost died in my arms and they couldn’t do anything.” 
Migrant families, activists and attorneys said this week that the abuse of child migrants remains widespread in immigration detention across the U.S. The most recent outcry comes after attorneys reported children and infants were found sick and left in soiled clothing at a Border Patrol station southeast of El Paso in Clint, Texas.
But critics say children are being put at risk at various other federal facilities, as well, where they can go cold, hungry, thirsty and without adequate medical care. The lack of resources follows vows from the Trump administration to overhaul its policies after the deaths of seven migrant children in federal custody over the last year.
Amid rising anger nationally about how migrant children are treated, Acting Customs and Border Protection Commissioner John Sanders resigned Tuesday. President Donald Trump said he was “very concerned” about conditions at migrant detainee facilities and while he did not ask Sanders to resign, he “knew” a change was coming at the top of the agency.
Families interviewed by USA TODAY Network reporters and held by the U.S. worry these conditions could have lasting affects on their children. 
While they were detained, there were so many women and children in the cell, Macario said, that she spent two nights trying in vain to sleep while standing and holding her daughter. Many children developed fevers and coughs, including her daughter, she said.
Esperanza Panameño had a similar experience while in U.S. custody. The Salvadoran woman nursed her sick 7-month-old son back to health Tuesday at the Good Shepherd shelter for migrants in Ciudad Juárez, three miles away from the U.S. border, days after she was released and sent to Mexico.

She said she endured five harrowing days last week in Border Patrol detention in El Paso, Texas, with her three children -- a 12-year-old son, six-year-old daughter and the baby boy. Their father, Carlos Salinas, was detained separately. Both parents described being held in cold, overcrowded cells with little or no access to water, basic hygiene or food. 
“You couldn't even walk for all the people on the floor,” said Panameño, 34, her baby coughing at her breast. “Everyone got sick.”
USA TODAY couldn’t independently confirm Panameño’s and Macario’s experiences while they were detained, but their description of border detention conditions echoed many other recent accounts from migrants and attorneys, as well as from the government’s own watchdog agencies, including the Office of the Inspector General.

“The overwhelming majority of children are asylum seekers,” said Elora Mukherjee, a New York-based immigration attorney who interviewed children detainees at the Clint Border Patrol station near El Paso last week. “They are already fleeing from the worst trauma we can imagine. To be detained in conditions like this compounds the trauma.”
Elissa Steglich, a University of Texas law professor, was part of a separate team of attorneys that visited eight CBP detention facilities in south Texas in early June and interviewed dozens of migrant children and their parents. The detainees reported being fed the same meal of a lukewarm burrito and apple every day, spending 18 days locked up without seeing daylight, wearing the same clothes for days or weeks and having no access to a toothbrush or basic hygiene, she said.
Pepper Black, a volunteer for the Catholic Charities Humanitarian Respite Center in McAllen, Texas, said she and other volunteers hear similar stories repeatedly from migrants. Migrants go to the center after being released from federal custody to clean up from their long journey and make travel arrangements to their final U.S. destinations.
Last week, one female migrant recounted how no one would help when her baby threw up on her at a federal detention facility, Black said. Later, an official gave her a Mylar blanket to wrap the baby in, she said. “Over and over again, we hear these horrific stories,” Black said.
Lawyers recall children kept in 'cages'
Attorneys visited CBP detention facilities over the past 10 days under the Flores settlement agreement -- which governs how detained immigrant children and families should be treated in custody. They described troubling scenes of malnourished infants and children kept in cells described as “cages,” said Mukherjee, director of the Immigrants’ Rights Clinic at Columbia Law School in New York City. She was part of a team allowed to visit the facility.
None of the children she spoke with had been allowed to shower or clean up since crossing the border and many were still in clothes stained with mucus or urine, she said. Many slept on concrete floors with no blankets.
“Never before have I seen conditions as degrading and inhumane as I witnessed in Clint, Texas,” she said. “The children were hungry, dirty, sick, scared.”
The detained children ranged in ages from four months to 17 years old, and attorneys spoke to more than 60 of them. All had crossed the border with an accompanying adult – a grandmother, aunt or older sibling – and had been separated by federal immigration agents, she said. Some of the detainees were teenage mothers cradling infants.
U.S. Rep. Veronica Escobar, D-Texas, told USA TODAY she has hosted lawmakers in her El Paso district to see the conditions. But when news broke about appalling conditions at the Clint facility, her staffers tried to visit and were initially refused entry.
“The urgency of now and of today is children sleeping on concrete floors, children whose T-shirts are covered in mucus,” she said.
Under CBP’s own policies, children immigrant detainees are not supposed allowed to be held in immigration custody for more than 72 hours. Mukherjee said many of the detained children she spoke with had been there for days and, in some cases, weeks.
Neither Steglich, Mukherjee, nor the other attorneys were allowed to tour the facilities. Tthey were able to choose the names of children they wished to interview from a roster of detainees. The children then met with the lawyers in interview rooms and described their living conditions at the facility.
Mukherjee said her team of attorneys tried to gain access to a section of the facility that was quarantined off due to a flu outbreak. But the lawyers were only allowed to speak to three of the children in quarantine via telephone as guards hovered nearby the children.

Waves of migrant families arriving at the border
U.S. immigration authorities announced in December they would perform thorough medical checks on nearly every child in Border Patrol custody after several children died.
Macario said Suriana saw doctors twice while in detention and both times they gave her medicine -- a red syrup. But as Suriana’s condition worsened, the little girl vomited repeatedly and stopped eating. And still they were detained -- eight days without bathing, she said.
Macario said her daughter's illness progressed until one day, the child laid on the ground and hardly moved. She said she scooped up the little girl and cradled her.
The women in the cramped cell started banging on the door to get the officials’ attention, Macario said. “The girl is dying!” the women called out, she said.
A border agent arrived and saw the girl limp in Macario’s arms, she said.
“There’s nothing we can do now,” Macario said he told her. “That’s the answer they gave me.”
Panameño told USA TODAY that while in detention she spoke with someone she described as “a lawyer or a social worker” and she complained to the person that there was no food for babies. She said she and her children went four days without a toothbrush.
Miguel Garcia, a spokesman for the Border Patrol’s El Centro sector, said the agency “can’t comment specifically on any one specific incident coming from an unknown source.” He said all children ages 17 and under receive a mandatory health screening by a nurse or doctor upon arrival and that medical professionals are on site and available at all hours of the day.
Border Patrol agents detained 109,144 migrants in April, the highest monthly total since 2007, and the second straight month where more than 100,000 migrants were taken into custody. The Texas border, especially, has been overwhelmed by waves of migrant families and unaccompanied children in recent months, many of whom are seeking asylum. 
Border Patrol officials are expected to turn over unaccompanied minors to the Department of Health and Human Services for care and transfer to sponsors in the U.S. But the government agency, too, says it is overwhelmed.
Unaccompanied minors “are waiting too long in CBP facilities that are not designed to care for children,” Department of Health and Human Services said in a statement this week. 
Brian Hastings, Border Patrol’s chief of the law enforcement operations directorate, contradicted reports about harsh conditions at detention facilities for children during a Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee hearing Wednesday.
Sen. Maggie Hassan, D-N.H., prompted the exchange when she asked about squalid conditions in Border Patrol facilities in Clint, as well as in McAllen and El Paso in Texas and a private facility in Homestead, Florida.
Hastings said all facilities across the southwest border are provided a variety of hygiene products, despite the facilities not being built to house children. “We provide three meals – hot meals – a day and snacks are unlimited to those who want them,” Hastings added.
“You do understand that that is in direct contradiction with news reports that we have been reading, and from what lawyers who have visiting these children are telling us,” Hassan said.
Hastings suggested that the reports couldn’t be trusted. “Those are the plaintiffs' attorneys,” Hastings said.
An unforgettable nightmare for families
The children’s plight served as background to an immigration debate unfolding this week in Congress, as House lawmakers approved Tuesday night a $4.5 billion spending bill to provide humanitarian assistance along the southern border. Republicans in the GOP-controlled Senate were at the same time debating how to move forward with their own spending bill. Trump has threatened to veto the House version.
Macario, who is seeking asylum and hopes to reunite with her husband in Memphis, has been waiting on the Mexican side of the border under the “Migrant Protection Protocols” program that requires some asylum applicants to wait in Mexico until their cases are heard in the United States. She had her first hearing in San Ysidro, California on June 10 and said she plans to attend her second court date in August.
Macario said if her daughter survived the immigration facility it was because of her own prayers.
“For me,” she said, “it was a nightmare that I’m never going to forget.”

Estranged Husband Of Missing Mom Says He Misses 5 Children

Estranged Husband Of Missing Mom Says He Misses 5 Children

STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) — The estranged husband of a missing Connecticut mother of five made his first public comments Wednesday since her disappearance, saying he loves and misses his children as they remain in the custody of his mother-in-law while he faces criminal charges.
Fotis Dulos, 51, briefly spoke to reporters after a hearing in his divorce and child custody court case in Stamford.
"I just want to tell my children that they're constantly on my mind and that I love them and I miss them very much," he said.
Jennifer Dulos, 50, vanished May 24 after dropping the children off at school in New Canaan. The children, who range in age from 8 to 13 and include two sets of twins, have been staying with Jennifer Dulos' mother, Gloria Farber, in New York City. Both Farber and Fotis Dulos are seeking custody of the children.
Fotis Dulos and his girlfriend, Michelle Troconis, are charged with evidence tampering and hindering prosecution, accused of disposing of items found in Hartford that contained Jennifer Dulos' blood. They pleaded not guilty and posted bail.
Fotis Dulos' lawyer, Norman Pattis, on Wednesday repeated a previous suggestion he made that Jennifer Dulos may not have been a victim of foul play.
"We are actively contemplating a revenge/suicide hypothesis as an explanation for her disappearance," Pattis said after the court hearing. "We will not comment further on our investigative activities at this time."
Pattis drew criticism last weekend when he suggested Jennifer Dulos may have staged her own disappearance in a plot similar to Gillian Flynn's 2012 novel "Gone Girl," in which a wife pretends to vanish to frame her husband for murder.
A spokeswoman for Jennifer Dulos' family called the suggestion "false and irresponsible."
Pattis previously said Jennifer Dulos once wrote a manuscript similar "Gone Girl." He also told the New York Post that Jennifer Dulos once vanished from New York and "lived for years under a false name" after an "intrafamilial dispute about money."
A spokeswoman for Jennifer Dulos' family responded that the 2002 manuscript was not similar to "Gone Girl."
Pattis also said Wednesday that Fotis Dulos is willing to speak to prosecutors about Jennifer Dulos' state of mind before she went missing.
No ruling was made regarding the custody of the children Wednesday.

To Be Loki, Or Not To Be Loki: Marvel Releases Superhero Plays For Schools

New plays featuring Marvel superheroes are available for schools to license for student performances. 
Marvel
If high school students can pull off a play all about sci-fi horror film Alien, why not Marvel superheroes?
Marvel Comics and licensing house Samuel French are teaming up to release a series of three one-act plays about Marvel superheroes written specifically to be performed by high school students, the two companies announced Tuesday. 
The Marvel Spotlight plays include Hammered: A Thor and Loki Play; Squirrel Girl Goes to College: A Squirrel Girl Play; and Mirror of Most Value: A Ms. Marvel Play. The plays can be officially licensed by schools.
Now playing: Watch this: Spider-Man: Far From Home -- Everything to know
1:20
In Mirror of Most Value: A Ms. Marvel Play, written by Masi Asare,Kamala, Kahn tries to boost Ms. Marvel's superhero image by writing her own fan fiction. But when building a fandom becomes an obsession, Kamala's schoolwork and friendships begin to suffer. To become the hero she always wanted to be, Kamala must learn to accept herself just as she is -- imperfections and all.
Squirrel Girl Goes to College: A Squirrel Girl Play is written by Karen Zacarías. It follows Doreen Green (also known as Squirrel Girl) on her adventures at Empire State University as she makes new friends -- and protects them from super villains.
Hammered: A Thor & Loki Play is written by Christian Borle. In it, teenage Thor and Loki compete with and prank each other as usual. But underneath all the mischief, the two Princes of Asgard discover their own brotherly bond. 
So far there are only three plays to choose from, but hopefully more are on the way. If Marvel and Samuel French are taking requests, a play all about Captain Marvel and her cat-like alien pal Goose would be fun to see on stage. Hint, hint.

The Portland School Board’s Three New Members Weigh In On Whether Police Belong In District Schools

The Portland school board will likely wrestle with the question of whether armed police officers belong in its nine high schools next year. And its three newest members, set to be sworn in on July 2, will play a prominent role in those discussions.
Andrew Scott, Michelle DePass and Eilidh Lowery won their respective races in May to replace Julie Esparza Brown, Paul Anthony and Mike Rosen during an election that also returned Amy Kohnstamm to the board for another four-year term.
The three newcomers spoke to The Oregonian/OregonLive about their priorities for the next four years, as well as their perspective on issues the school board will address in the next 12 months. And all three struck a different note than most of the seven members of the current board, including two of whom will remain in office after June 30 and voted yes last year on whether armed officers are the way to go.
In December of 2018, the board approved an agreement with city police to pony up $1.2 million per year to fund full-time school resource officers at its nine high schools. Kohnstamm and Scott Bailey abstained from that vote.
The decision was met with protests, which led to the school board to reverse course about a month later — but only on the matter of funding the program.
Board members and district officials say they want police in schools while many students oppose the presence of armed law enforcement patrolling their halls.
Here’s where the school board’s three newcomers fall on the issue:

“One of our primary responsibilities is to ensure students are safe at their schools. Safety includes students feeling safe as well, and some of our students don’t feel safe around Portland police officers.
It’s important we listen to students and collaboratively figure out solutions to help them feel safe.
I think we need to talk to the city and the police bureau and really make sure that’s what’s happening. There are also options to have unarmed community resource officers in the school as well. That’s exactly the balance we’re trying to strike.”
Michelle DePass, Zone 2:

“I am not a huge fan of school resource officers because we know, and the data tells us, that kids of color are more likely to be harmed. I don’t believe a school resource officer could stop a mass shooting or even respond to a mass shooting.
I feel like that conversation needs to about who’s entitled to comfort and safety. It’s usually white people that are entitled to a sense of safety and a sense of comfort.
White parents might feel safe, but me, I don’t feel safe. The worst thing that could happen is a shooting, in my opinion, and a school resource officer is not going to be able to address that.
I would love to see that budget directed toward supports, counselors, people who connect with the kids.”
Eilidh Lowery, Zone 7:

Southeast Portland pastor Eilidh Lowery will represent Zone 7 on the Portland school board starting July 2.
“I think we have to look into our students and how they feel what it’s like, especially for minority students, to be in schools with resource officers.
I think we need to create a culture of safety and community for all students. I don’t think where we are right now in PPS, (that) we’re ready to expand our school resource officers.
I think there’s definitely a community sense that we need counselors, not cops.
When students spoke at the school board, there was a sense that school resource officers wouldn’t help keep them safe. There’s documented systemic racism because of the way that our national narrative is about police officers in our communities.
In Vancouver, there were several instances. There’s this moment of fragileness, and we need to be careful about who we bring into schools and listen to our students.”

Brooklyn Superintendent Talks Strategic Plan At State Of The Schools Address

Brooklyn Superintendent Talks Strategic Plan At State Of The Schools Address

BROOKLYN, Ohio -- Big-school opportunities in a small-school setting are what Brooklyn City Schools Superintendent Mark G. Gleichauf touted in his recent State of the Schools address.
The Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce event took place June 12 at Brooklyn Elementary School.
The superintendent focused his address around the district’s strategic plan, which included positive report card improvements.
"We’ve had documented improvements over the last three consecutive years in our state report card, so the things that we’re doing with teaching and learning are making an impact,” Gleichauf said.
“One of the other aspects was increasing our student involvement opportunities for students. We want kids involved in school. We’ve increased the percentage of students at the high school involved in activities -- athletic and non-athletic -- because there is great research to show that involved students are going to do better in the classroom.”
Other strategic plan topics covered safety and security, which Gleichauf said are priorities, as well as district communications. In terms of facilities, the superintendent talked about last year’s $250,000 repair of the Brooklyn High School roof.
When it came time to discuss finances, Gleichauf noted that last month’s passage of Issue 1 provided a different tenor for his State of the Schools address. Voters approved the 6.9-mill emergency operating levy in May.
“I think there’s great excitement across the school district with our students, with our families and our community,” Gleichauf said.
“I believe that was a mandate to us as a school district to say we’re happy with what you’re doing, but, hey, continue to do those good things and continue to provide a quality education and great opportunities for our kids.”
Also taking place at the State of the Schools address was the awarding of the Chamber of Commerce scholarships to current and past Brooklyn City Schools students.
Class of 2019 graduates Karli Verchio and Ruth Sasso received $2,500 scholarships, while Anthony Giordano received a $1,000 scholarship. In addition, 2017 Brooklyn High School graduate Brandon Hass received a $1,000 scholarship.
Looking ahead, Gleichauf said he plans on continuing the district’s financial forums, which began last year.
“We’re going to continue to communicate with our community about what we’re doing financially and where we are,” Gleichauf said. “We want to build off that confidence that the community has given us with the passage of Issue 1.
“We want to say, this is how we are now trying to stay fiscally solvent and stay fiscally responsible to you. We think those add some great value.”
