Try to skip school if you value your life.”The user finished the comment with a profane hashtag directed at the high school, then posted another one warning students “I don’t think you guys are gonna wanna hide at the 900s” apparently referring to a cluster of classrooms on the northern end of the school.The comment, which was posted sometime around 4 p.m. Saturday onto a March 22 post congratulating Bonita Vista High’s 2019-20 ASB officers, appeared to have gone unnoticed by authorities and school officials for nearly a whole day.About noon Sunday, Twitter user @AlbertTovar13 tweeted at the Chula Vista Police Department with a screenshot of the comment, which he said was taken by his son.The police department responded thanking the user and said the high school “will be addressing this concern as soon as they can.”  Around the same time as the Police Department’s response, the high school addressed the threat on its ASB Instagram page and its Twitter account. “This afternoon we were made aware of a possible social media threat to our school,” it said on both pages. “We are working with Chula Vista Police who (are) actively investigating this matter. We will update you further as we learn more.” Updated: 7:25 AM KUSI Newsroom, Social Media Threat Made Against Bonita Vista High School Posted: April 7, 2019center_img Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter April 7, 2019 KUSI Newsroom last_img read more

Lenovo Yoga C930 vs LG Gram 2in1 2019 Which laptop should you

first_img PC Memory Best 2-in-1 for traveling light 1.8GHz Intel Core i7-8550U Sarah Tew/CNET 512GB SSD Get what you get or get what you wantThe LG Gram 2-in-1 is currently available in a single configuration from Best Buy for $1,500.  Fortunately, it’s a good one and is in line with Lenovo’s pricing for the C930. (There’s a spec chart below for comparison.) The price also includes LG’s active pen and a USB-C-to-Ethernet adapter. The Yoga, on the other hand, starts at around $1,100 and can be configured with an Intel Core i5 or i7 processor, up to 16GB of memory, up to a 1TB PCIe-NVMe SSD for storage and a 4K UHD display. Lenovo also frequently has deals on its site, so depending on when you buy you could end up getting a better configuration for less. For example, at the moment you can get the C930 with a Core i7 and 16GB RAM for less than one with a Core i5 and 8GB RAM.  The LG Gram weighs noticeably less than its similarly sized competition. For business travelers, commuters or students, the lighter load will likely be appreciated. With its great battery life and USB-C charging, you can likely get through a daily commute without carrying its power supply, too. Plus, since LG gave it a full-size HDMI out and USB-A ports, you won’t need as many adapters.  16GB DDR4 SDRAM 2,400MHz Post a comment 1.8GHz Intel Core i7-8565U 256GB SSD Storage Lenovo Yoga C930 Best 2-in-1 and touchscreen laptops 5 ways you should be using your two-in-one laptop Best laptops, desktops and tablets for creatives in 2019 Read CNET’s review 128MB Intel UHD Graphics 620 45 Photos Tags Best all-around premium 2-in-1 Within LG’s deep portfolio of appliances, TVs, soundbars and phones is its line of Gram laptops. Available in 13.3-, 14-, 15.6- and 17-inch sizes, they all have ultralight bodies for their sizes and exceedingly long battery lives (though never as long as LG claims). This year LG added its first Gram 2-in-1 to the lineup by essentially putting 360-degree hinges on its Gram 14 laptop, in turn making it one of the lightest — if not the lightest — 14-inch two-in-one laptop available. It’s a good half pound less than our current top-rated two-in-one of that size, the Lenovo Yoga C930. With similar features, components and pricing, too, the LG Gram 14 2-in-1 is stiff competition for the Yoga C930. Here’s how they measure up to each other. Note that CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of products featured on this page. Sarah Tew/CNET Weighing the design differencesWhile the Yoga C930 and Gram 14 2-in-1 are roughly the same size, the latter is lighter, which makes it slightly more comfortable to use as a handheld tablet. That comfort extends to the included Wacom AES 2.0 Pen with 4,096 pressure levels and tilt detection. It’s a full-size pen unlike the Yoga’s, which is about the size of Samsung’s S Pen and significantly smaller than the Wacom. The Yoga’s advantage here is that the pen stores and charges in the body; there’s no storage or holder for the LG’s pen. (Both pens worked well, by the way.)Pen storage is admittedly a small issue and likely not a dealbreaker on its own. There are a bunch of these little differences that could sway you one way or the other. 024-lg-gram-2-in-1LG Gram 14 2-in-1 is well connected.  Sarah Tew/CNET Lenovo went with two USB-C Thunderbolt 3 ports and a single USB-A port, for instance. There’s a combination mic-headphone jack, too, but that’s it. This means you’ll need an adapter or dongle for other connections. LG, despite having similarly limited space, gives you two USB-A ports, a microSD card slot and HDMI output as well as a USB-C 3.1 port and includes an Ethernet adapter.  When it comes to keyboards, neither laptop’s keys have a lot of travel. The Yoga’s ultimately proved to be more comfortable and accurate, at least for touch typing, because LG used smaller Enter and Backspace keys that resulted in missed keystrokes.  Lenovo Yoga C930 Now playing: Watch this: Display size/resolution Share your voice 128MB Intel UHD Graphics 620 Related stories The C930 might not be as light as the LG or have its port assortment, but it has other design advantages like a better keyboard, a garaged active pen, a webcam privacy shutter and a speaker system that actually sounds good. Multiple configurations are available from retailers and direct from Lenovo starting around $1,100 so you can get performance that fits your budget. Two other features might help the Lenovo rise above the LG for you. If you’re concerned about web cam privacy, the Yoga has a small switch that slides a shutter across the camera to block it. There’s also a function key to instantly cut the built-in mics. Then there’s the Yoga C930’s speaker system. Lenovo used the laptop’s 360-degree hinge as a rotational soundbar. Paired with its Dolby Atmos audio processing, the C930 has unusually good sound for its thin chassis. The Gram’s speakers are fine in a pinch, but it’s no surprise LG built in headphone-specific DTS processing. 12GB DDR4 SDRAM 2,133MHz Networking LG Gram 14 2-in-1 802.11ac Wi-Fi wireless; Bluetooth 4.1 27 Photos Windows 10 Home (64-bit) Graphics More than beginner’s luck  The Gram 2-in-1 might be LG’s first for the category, but it doesn’t show in the final product. LG’s taken everything that worked for its clamshell laptop designs and made it work as an ultraportable convertible. It also carried over a couple things that were less desirable like its keyboard layout and thin-sounding speakers, which are two areas where Lenovo’s Yoga C930 shines. And with the options to get the C930 in more than one configuration from more than one retailer, the Lenovo has broader appeal while delivering similar performance and battery life.  Lenovo Yoga C930 CPU 14-inch 1,920×1,080-pixel touch display Laptops 2:06 Operating system Sarah Tew/CNET 14-inch 1,920×1,080-pixel touch display 0 802.11ac Wi-Fi wireless; Bluetooth 5.0 Read CNET review Lenovo’s Yoga C930 is the ultraportable 2-in-1 we’ve… LG Gram 14 2-in-1 Power drawBoth the LG and Lenovo delivered strong performance for general home and office uses such as word processing, web browsing and email. Want a two-in-one for jotting down notes, putting together presentations or sketching a design? Either of these will do the trick. They also have enough muscle to push through more demanding work, assuming it’s not too graphics intensive. The integrated graphics can handle casual gaming at low settings as well as basic photo and video edits. On our benchmark tests, the configurations we reviewed performed roughly the same given their slight processor and RAM differences. Battery performance was similar, too, on our online streaming video test. The Gram ran for 12 hours, 35 minutes while the Yoga stopped less than 10 minutes shy of that at 12 hours, 26 minutes.  Price as reviewed See at Best Buy Specs comparison Lenovo LG $1,300 See at Best Buy Windows 10 Home (64-bit) LG Gram 2-in-1 lives up to its lightweight name $1,500 last_img read more

Did Jerry Falwells personal photos violate Christian sexual codes

first_img Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email,About the authorView All Posts By: Yonat Shimron YonatShimron Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email,(RNS) — The news that Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. allegedly sought out President Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen to help prevent the release of some embarrassing personal photos has rocked the mediasphere for mostly political reasons.Those have to do with whether Cohen’s intervention led Falwell to issue a crucial evangelical endorsement of Trump ahead of the 2016 Republican presidential primaries.Falwell, who has denied Cohen’s account, is an ardent champion of the president. Just this week Falwell tweeted that Trump was owed an extension of his term as “reparations” for the time spent on the Mueller investigation.But while some evangelicals faulted Falwell for his endorsement of a president whose behavior has been at odds with many evangelical values, the allegations of racy personal photos call into question Falwell’s own behavior and whether they align with evangelical sexual mores.President Trump talks with Liberty University president, Jerry Falwell Jr., right, during commencement ceremonies at the school in Lynchburg, Va., on May 13, 2017. (AP Photo/Steve Helber)Christian colleges take sexual impropriety seriously. Many schools, including Liberty University, have strict codes regarding sexual misconduct, including the viewing and sharing of pornography and nude or indecent photos.While “sexting” or other forms of sharing erotic photos has become common in the broader culture evangelicals would mostly consider them sexual sins.“I would think that should a president wind up exposed with having engaged in sexually inappropriate behavior, that would reflect back on the character of the institution, and I would expect the trustees would take that more seriously,” said John Hawthorne, a sociologist of religion at Spring Arbor University, a Christian school in Spring Arbor, Mich.Many similar schools, such as Liberty University, have honor codes that spell out what they consider to be Christian standards for sexual conduct.Those codes include a broad category of sexual offenses that are considered crimes, including sexual harassment and sexual assault. But Christian schools often go a step further, prohibiting premarital sex, cohabitation, extramarital sex and the viewing of erotic photos or pornography.Falwell has denied Cohen’s account, made in a phone call in March with actor Tom Arnold. According to a recording of the call, Cohen claimed he flew to Florida around 2015, and got the person with the Falwell photos to agree to destroy them.Neither Falwell nor Liberty University responded to a request for comment from RNS.Reuters first reported the story on Tuesday (May 7), quoting Cohen as saying, “I actually have one of the photos. It’s terrible.”Michael Cohen, President Trump’s former lawyer, back center, leaves after a closed door Senate Intelligence Committee hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington, on Feb. 26, 2019. (AP Photo/Manuel Balce Ceneta)Later that day, Falwell’s lawyer told The Washington Post that the allegation was false.“While the Falwells have a long-standing friendship with Michael Cohen, they never engaged or paid Cohen to represent them in any legal or other professional capacity, and Cohen did not ever resolve any legal matter on their behalf,” Falwell’s lawyer told the Post.Falwell then agreed to an interview on the Todd Starnes Radio Show, where he denied the allegations.“This report is not accurate,” he told Starnes, a conservative talk-show host. “There are no compromising or embarrassing photos of me.”If there were, it might be a violation of the school’s honor code.Liberty University’s Christian School of Law, for instance, stipulates that ‘involvement with pornographic, erotic, obscene, indecent, or other similarly offensive materials, expressions, or conduct is inconsistent with the Personal Code of Honor and the Christian faith.”Wheaton College, a premier Christian school in Illinois, has a sexual behavior policy that requires students to refrain from “physical expressions of, written descriptions about, and/or visual images suggesting sexual intimacy.”Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan, describes decency offenses as “actions, images, words or data which are indecent, abusive, profane, harassing or sexually offensive whether via telephone, e-mail, audio, film, video, printed materials, homepages, or online social networks.”In particular, Calvin’s rules single out public nudity and indecent exposure.Depending on the severity of the offense, disciplinary measures for offenders can range from counseling to probation to expulsion.Rev. Jerry Falwell Jr., right, answers a student’s question, along with his wife, Becki, during a town hall on the opioid crisis at a convocation at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va., on Nov. 28, 2018. (AP Photo/Steve Helber)Christians often refer to the New Testament in defending Christian sexual ethics.They take seriously Jesus’ admonition in the Gospel of Matthew that “anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.”They also cite a passage from the Apostle Paul’s letter to the Corinthians: “Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God?”“I tell my students who are going to become teachers, if you’ve got something on your social media site and it’s not a flattering thing, take it off,” said John Fea, a professor of American history at Messiah College in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. “It’s not going to be worth it to lose a job over it.”The larger problem, Fea said, is the viewing of pornography, which he described as “the big hidden secret,” at Christian colleges and universities.Some evangelical schools now have support groups for young men who are trying to hold each other accountable for viewing pornography, Hawthorne added.A new book by University of Oklahoma sociologist Samuel L. Perry found that U.S. evangelicals view pornography slightly less often than other Americans.But when do, evangelicals feel more guilt, shame and depression than other Americans, writes Perry in “Addicted to Lust: Pornography in the Lives of Conservative Protestants.”While no one has accused Falwell of viewing pornography or straying outside his marriage to Becki, his wife, his alleged use of photos may be a sign that the culture of nude selfies may have reached Christian institutions — as has the widespread viewing of pornography.“It’s a serious problem these colleges are trying to address,” Fea said. “They can’t do much to control it.”(This story has been updated.)
