New Jersey Bill Inspired By Snooki March 24, 2017 13:15

A bill inspired by the Jersey Shore star Nicole Polizzi, better known as Snooki, aims to cap spending of the state money for speakers at public universities in New Jersey at $10,000. The Republican Assemblyman John DiMaio was inspired to write the bill after learning about the reality star's $32,000 fee she received for her appearance at Rutgers University in the year 2011. She reportedly was paid $2,000 more than the Nobel prize-winning author Toni Morrison who gave the commencement address in the same year. DiMaio deems it ludicrous and wasteful to disburse state funds as payment for the speakers like Polizzi, and since the year 2011, he has sponsored this measure in each session. During her appearance, Polizzi advised the students to "study hard, but party harder." Indian American Postal Supervisor Charged With Embezzlement A spokesman for the Rutgers University, E.J. Miranda defended the decision in the year 2011 to NJ.com, explaining that Polizzi was invited by the students. "The students use funds designated for student programming. The university does not censor the speakers (that) students choose to invite to campus," Miranda said. On Thursday, the Assembly is slated to vote on the bill and will head to the Gov. Chris Christie's desk if approved. When asked about the bill, Gov. Christie said that he would not waste his time on it, but would "consider it when it comes to my desk." "This is what happens when you have a part-time Legislature that is looking for things to do, I’ve got much bigger issues to be concerned about in a state with a $35 billion budget, with all the different challenges and opportunities we have, than to be worried about micromanaging what universities in the state decide to pay their commencement speakers," he said. Polizzi's representative has not returned USA TODAY's request for comment. Mrudula Duddempudi.

Mock Slave Auction At New Jersey School March 22, 2017 13:23

A New Jersey school is coming under the fire after an elementary school class held a mock slave auction. The NJ.com reported that, fifth-graders at the Jefferson School in Maplewood held the mock auction while under the supervision of a substitute teacher. The website said that the activity was not part of the curriculum in the South Orange-Maplewood School District. “There was a sale of a black child by white children in the classroom,” Tracey Jarmon-Woods, parent of a student in the another class at school, told to CBS New York. “If you’re demoralized — sold on a block in 2017 — it may affect you the rest of your life.” The classroom’s regular teacher found out about the mock auction, that had been videotaped, after returning and also sent a letter home to parents. After Injections For Knee Pain, 31 New Jersey Patients Infected The teacher, who has not been named, said that the incident would be used as a “teachable moment to elaborate on the gravity of this part in our history,” according to the copy of letter obtained by The Maplewoodian website. The school district sent a statement to the website which said it did not condone the activity. It blamed the substitute and said that it would “look again at training and improved supervisory protocols for substitutes.” The statement from the district’s communications director,Suzanne M. Turner, did not offer an apology. Superintendent John Ramos later apologized at the school board meeting.
