Red Panda on the loose in France

🔴 Recherche d’un Panda roux 🔴 Dans la nuit du 14 au 15 novembre, les importantes chutes de neige ont cassé de nombreuses branches dans le parc. Un de nos petits pandas a su en profiter pour passer d’arbre en arbre et sortir de l’enceinte de son enclos. Le Panda roux est un animal principalement nocturne, il passe donc une bonne partie de sa journée à dormir dans un arbre. C’est un grimpeur hors-pair qui n’a pas peur de l’altitude, n’hésitez pas à regarder en haut des arbres ! Aux dernières nouvelles, il aurait été aperçu près de Saint-Maurice-sur-Dargoire, à moins de 5 km du parc. Si vous l’apercevez, contactez nous au : 04 77 75 22 92 ou au 06 65 68 60 53 Ne tentez pas de l’attraper, car, même s’il s’agit d’un petit animal inoffensif aux airs de peluche, il possède de bonnes griffes et de bonnes dents ! Merci à tous pour l’aide que vous nous apporterez ! ❤ #pandaroux #aide #recherche #neige

"We cannot, nor would we, fire [the professor] for his posts as a private citizen, as vile and stupid as they are, because the First Amendment of the United States Constitution forbids us to do so"

From a lengthy statement by the Provost of Indiana University Kelley School of Business:

Professor ... has, for many years, used his private social media accounts to disseminate his racist, sexist, and homophobic views. When I label his views in this way, let me note that the labels are not a close call, nor do his posts require careful parsing to reach these conclusions.


His latest posts slurring women were picked up by a person with a heavily followed Twitter account, and various officials at Indiana University have been inundated in the last few days with demands that he be fired. We cannot, nor would we, fire Professor ... for his posts as a private citizen, as vile and stupid as they are, because the First Amendment of the United States Constitution forbids us to do so. That is not a close call.


Therefore, the Kelley School is taking a number of steps to ensure that students not add the baggage of bigotry to their learning experience:


The First Amendment is strong medicine, and works both ways. All of us are free to condemn views that we find reprehensible, and to do so as vehemently and publicly as Professor ... expresses his views. We are free to avoid his classes, and demand that the university ensure that he does not, or has not, acted on those views in ways that violate either the federal and state civil rights laws or IU’s nondiscrimination policies.

"The 15-year-old TikTok star got dazzlingly famous overnight — and even she’s not sure why"


In six months, 15-year-old D’Amelio has collected more than 5.1 million followers on TikTok.


D’Amelio’s popularity is still confined largely to TikTok. While boasting more than 741,000 followers on Instagram, she has a modest 6,500 on Twitter and an inactive YouTube account.


D’Amelio’s first meet-and-greet, held last week in Norwalk, Connecticut, sold out. But the biggest shock for her fans was the $100 charge to take a photo or TikTok with her.


Charli’s mother, Heidi D’Amelio, tells MEL this is the first meet-and-greet the family has ever put on. They based the $100 amount off other meet-and-greets they’d researched. “You know, I can’t say that thought might not have run through my head if I if that were someone else. We probably should have worded it differently,” she says. Marc D’Amelio, a prominent Connecticut Republican, wasn’t available for an interview, but he tells me the family is being bombarded with calls and emails.
