As a result some of the staff had been losing up to five days pay a year. Using European law, UNISON brought employment tribunal claims on behalf of 476 of the...

Arizona Education Board Adopts Science Standards that Include Evolution
The Arizona State Board of Education has adopted revised science standards that affirm the teaching of evolution and climate change science in high schools state-wide. The decision came after public outcry from parents, teachers, and the scientific community over a last-minute proposal to remove references to evolution and climate change. AIBS commented in a letter to the Board; expressing concern that the draft standards “fail to properly address important aspects of evolution science and remove climate change science from the high school curricula.” AIBS asked the Board to revisit the standards and rely on ...

The Idea of a ‘DNA Test’ for Transgender People Is Part of a Long, Dark History

Greenhouse gases will continue contributing to climate change and vaccines will continue not causing autism, whether you believe it or not.

The latest example of this unlovely truth occurred just this week, when the New York Times reported the existence of a memo drafted by the Department of Health and Human Services that would, if the changes it details were implemented, effectively roll back civil protections for transgender people by defin...
