The U.S. Supreme Court ruled Thursday that the Trump administration cannot carry out its plan to shut down the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which has allowed nearly 800,000 young people, known as "Dreamers," to avoid deportation and remain in the U.S.
The decision is a big legal defeat for President Donald Trump on the issue of immigration, which has been a major focus of his domestic agenda. The ruling said the government failed to give an adequate justification for ending the federal program, calling the move "arbitrary and capricious under the APA."

The Supreme Court on Monday ruled federal anti-discrimination protections apply when companies fire people because they are gay or transgender.
At issue in the dispute is Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which, among other things, bars discrimination "because of sex." The Supreme Court has applied that prohibition in several other contexts, but Monday marks the first time it has weighed in on whether the protections extend to gay and transgender people.
The 6-3 ruling comes in a trio of cases the court considered across two hours of oral argument in October.

I do not condone looting and am only bringing this up as stories of protesters and reporters being arrested, blinded, and assaulted with chemical weapons becomes more prominent. You are by far, much safer with a group that will be held legally accountable watching over you.
Yesterday my wife’s family had a social distance birthday BBQ/deepfry with about 25 ppl there. I worked late so my wife rode out with her dad 2 hours before me. She asked me to grab her some vegan hot dogs from the grocery store before heading there so I did. Supper was at 6 and I arrived around 6:30.
My wife’s been vegan for 2 years and we have been married 1 year and together for 4. She is the only vegan out of her family, her friends, my family and my friends. She went vegan 3 months after I proposed to her which definitely made things interesting. It was a difficult adjustment but we make it work. I support her choices and she doesn’t force her lifestyle on me other than one rule. No pork for me. She has pet pigs and views all pigs in the same category as dogs. I don’t complain and do my best to respect her perspective on it. Im not gonna lie, I sneak the odd round of bacon in when she isn’t with me or when Im out with the boys and they are roasting me about my wife’s “hog laws”.... keep reading on reddit ➡
I feel like most are missing the point, this trick helps weed out the not so important issues that clogs your mind and takes up the much needed mental energy, so you can have more time and energy to deal with more pressing issues, like education, work, finances, relationships. Those are the sort of issue that should have more priority over let's say, buying the latest iPhone, or some other materialistic things.
That is all what the trick is all about
I (18F) had my mom schedule me an appointment for severe abdominal pain. She forgot that I had switched clinics a couple of months ago, so she made me an appointment at my old kids clinic. Because of corona, we scheduled a FaceTime appt.
During my appt, the only questions the nurse asked me were coronavirus related. Since she wasn’t asking me about my pain, I told her my symptoms. I also mistakenly thought she was a different doctor I saw last year, and she took great offense to that. For the rest of the appointment, she was curt, rude, and when I tried to apologize for mistaking her for someone else, she ended the FaceTime call. The entire appt lasted 7 minutes.
Because I had such a bad experience, I went back to my clinic. The doctor I saw there was kind, knowledgeable, and immediately knewwhat to do. He ordered an x-ray, and I got the X-ray as soon as our appt was over.
So for some reason, the X-ray was sent to the first nurse instead of my doctor. She called my mom to ask for m... keep reading on reddit ➡

is was a "furry cringe" subreddit with roughly 150,000 members, which intended to showcase the worst aspects of the furry community. One of the key foundations of the sub was that no furry was to be allowed in their secret clubhouse, and immediately banned them on sight - this of course, resulted in the sub becoming a toxic circlejerk where edgy 13 year olds would share their violent furry murder fantasies and other nasty hate-filled content.
That was, until the subreddit mysteriously went private out of the blue last week, with a link to what appeared to be a facetious mod application form which stated that the subreddit will now become a pro-furry all-inclusive subreddit for all to enjoy, and that they will now be banning hateful and "furphobic" content. The initial assumption to this was a [lame prank being pulled by the mods](https://www.reddit.com/r/RealFurryHours/comments/h7zo6y/a_message_from_ryiffinhell_in_th... keep reading on reddit ➡
5e is the most balanced version of dnd ever. Every class and subclass was rigorously playtested and bounded accuracy means strong characters have only small advantages. There are a few miniscule exceptions to this, but unless a player is taking builds from the internet and goes deep it is unlikely they will know about them.
With this in mind, dms shouldn't be applying house rules to nerf this class or the other. Posts are constantly made here like "i only let casters rejuvinate half spells per rest" or "i don't let sorcerers use twin spell" and the like. These are overwhelmingly a result of the DM not knowing how to encounter balance, not understanding the rules of the class, or being biased against a particular player because they use their abilities intelligently.
Class selection and the like are the only real freedom players have. Don't take that away from them. Doing so is only likely to make the game less balanced, not more so.
Decided to share a couple illustrative recent observations/stories weighing on my mind about how people are acting with the phase two opening of the economy.
Using a throwaway account because I don’t want any link to my workplace where these stories are from.
This past week at an Ontario hair salon, we’ve seen a few customers arrive for appointments with surprisingly high fevers, claiming they have no COVID symptoms on the screening questions. Temperatures well over 100º. Good thing we’re checking — most salons are not. They get frustrated when told they can’t get their hair cut. Usually claim they mostly feel fine and it’s probably just another virus. JFC.
In another case, a customer was mid-way through a cut when it casually came up in conversation that they had COVID but recovered. But their husband was home and terribly sick with it. OMFG. Why are you out doing errands around the city - stay home!
It’s frustrating because it’s very difficult to screen people when people simp... keep reading on reddit ➡
I worked for a company that was bought out by a large multinational corporation. After a couple of years, a new online expenses system was put in place, this also was used to book travel, hotels etc, and we were told that under no circumstances could it be circumvented.
The travel section was strange. The way it worked was you chose the city you were travelling to, and it gave you the pre-approved hotel you had to choose. All very straightforward, until you consider how these hotels got on there. It wasn't through hundreds of corporate negotiations, it was when the first traveller using the system had to stay in that city found a hotel that met their needs, that became the default hotel.
I live in a small country and the local company was based about 150km from the capital. The only people who'd used the system to stay in my country were the senior VPs who'd worked on the takeover, and when they returned to the capital to fly home usually spent a few vacation days there.
I was a... keep reading on reddit ➡
