Victoria and Abdul Author on the Movie ’s Unlikely Story: ‘It Sounds Like a Fantasy’
The first time Shrabani Basu heard of Abdul Karim, she was carrying out research for a book about the history of curry in the late 1990s. A few years later, while on holiday with her family, she came across a painting of Karim in Osborne House, a former private home of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert on the U.K.’s Isle of Wight. Basu was immediately struck by the fact that Karim — whom she thought was a servant — had been painted “beautifully, in red and gold,” with a book in his hand. “I knew that Abdul Karim had come from India to England to serve Queen Victoria in 1887, but the portr...

It is time for real pay rises for all public service workers, says UNISON
Opening the debate on public sector pay today (Monday) at the Labour Party conference in Brighton, UNISON general secretary Dave Prentis said: “For millions of public service workers struggling to survive, there is no more pressing issue than lifting the pay cap. “They’ve suffered years of brutal austerity and vicious attacks on public services, overseen by a government that does not care what damage it causes to people’s lives. “In the first six years of Conservative rule, public sector pay rose by just 4%, while the cost of living soared by 22%. “So for every year that’s a pay cu...

‘The Worst Thing I’ve Ever Seen.’ Time Is Running Out In the Search for Survivors of Mexico Quake
(MEXICO CITY) — Search teams are still digging in dangerous piles of rubble hoping against the odds to find survivors at collapsed buildings, while officials say they have so far cleared only 103 of Mexico City’s nearly 9,000 schools to reopen Monday. The need to inspect 98% of the capital’s public and private schools nearly a week after a magnitude 7.1 earthquake killed at least 182 people in the city and 138 in nearby states was a stark indicator of just how long the path back to normalcy will be. Federal Education Secretary Aurelio Nuno said Sunday that it could take a couple more weeks to inspect all ...

‘I Had a Right to Be at Central’: Remembering Little Rock’s Integration Battle
It was late September 1957, and students at Little Rock Central High School in Arkansas had been in class for three weeks. Everyone, that is, but 14-year-old Carlotta Walls and eight other teenagers who were to be Central High’s first black students. They had been prevented from entering the school by an angry mob of citizens, backed up by a group of Arkansas National Guardsmen. But on Sept. 25, under escort by federal troops, Carlotta and her classmates walked up the front steps of Central High and into history. They became the highest-profile black students in the United States to integrate a formerly all-white sch...

Arkansas High School Teacher Accused of Having Sex With 4 Students
A former high school art teacher in Arkansas has been accused of having sex with four students. Craighead County Sheriff’s Department and Detention Center Jessie Lorene Goline, who taught at Marked Tree High School in northeast Arkansas, was arrested Wednesday and charged with one count of first-degree sexual assault, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports. Prosecutors said Goline faces a single charge because only one of the students was younger than 18. Goline, 25, allegedly had sex with the students between January and April of 2016, authorities told the Democrat-Gazette. During one incident, a student, who was in Gol...

Mexico Struggles to Find the Missing as Death Toll From Earthquake Rises to 273

And what many had clung to as the unlikely triumph of life over death was revealed to be a case of some very high-profile misinformation: A top navy official announced there were no missing children at a collapsed Mexico City school where the purported plight of a girl trapped alive in the rubble had captivated people acros...

Arianna Huffington: 10 Ways to Actually, Finally Improve Company Culture
There are endless truisms about the importance of company culture — so many that the idea of a strong culture has become a cliché. We often just nod our heads and move on. But it matters.

Here are ten ways. 1) End the burnout delusion. Burnout is not the price we must pay for success.

Rescuers Race to Free Survivors Trapped After Mexico Earthquake
(MEXICO CITY) — The wiggling fingers of a young girl trapped in the rubble of her collapsed school in Mexico City raised hopes among hundreds of rescuers working furiously Wednesday to try to free her — a drama that played out at dozens of buildings toppled by the powerful earthquake that killed at least 223 people.

A South Carolina elementary school teacher has been placed on administrative leave after she asked her fifth grade students to imagine they are members of the Ku Klux Klan and told them to justify their treatment of black people.
