A Sanders at-large delegate from NY physically assaulted at a meeting of NY Dem delegates (BSG).

Published on Jun 23, 2016

Bernie Sanders supporters were not very welcome in a meeting of New York Democratic delegates. The Bernie backers found they’re mic cut when they tried to speak, and one was hit with a cane by an elderly man. Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“My name is Moumita Ahmed, and I co-founded Millennials for Bernie Sanders. I have put in tremendous work to help Sen. Sanders get elected in as many states possible, and partially as a result of that work, I was chosen by the campaign to go to the DNC in July as an at-large delegate.

We had a meeting with the New York delegates yesterday at 10 a.m. in Midtown at a union space, where things went awry really quickly after Christine Quinn got up on stage and declared only ONE candidate cares about poor people and that that candidate was Hillary — as if Bernie never existed.”

Here I Am...

Oon begins the video by talking about how foreigners view Singapore as "the gateway to the world" and her desire to escape the overwhelming crowds for greener pastures.

Oon's travels takes her to countries like the U.S., China and Thailand, and correctly nails the stereotypical views we hold of people in these countries. She also covers how differently she identified with herself in each new place and contrasted them with the wide spectrum of perceptions people had of her.

Referring to the U.S. as "TV land," Oon says: "But here I am the Asian girl who speaks great English; who must be good at math."

About her experience in China, where her ancestors came from: "I'm reminded that for them I'm the girl whose family escape a history of suffering. I could barely speak to find my way, let alone call this my motherland."


Oon then ends her monologue with a profound declaration and question she poses to us: "We are all foreign. So what decides who should stay or who should go?"

Ever felt like you’re too old to do something? Well, you’re not. And Ernestine Shepherd is proof of that. She’s the world’s oldest female bodybuilder, and believe it or not, the iron-pumping grandma recently turned 80.

The octogenarian Baltimorean was born on June 16th, 1936. She didn’t start exercising until she was 56 years old but since then she’s gone on to win two bodybuilding titles. From 2010 to 2011 Shepherd was even declared the oldest competitive body builder in the world by the Guinness Book of World Records!

Mom Breaks Down Realizing Her Daughter Was Practicing Lockdown Drill In ‘Cute’ Bathroom Picture

Source: GOOD


A picture may be worth a thousand words but sometimes there’s another story behind a deceptively simple and “cute” image. That was the case for Stacey Wehrman Feeley, who snapped a seemingly adorable picture of her young daughter standing atop a toilet in their home’s bathroom.

“However, The moment she told me what she was doing I broke down,” wrote in a Facebook post that has quickly gone viral. “She was practicing for a lockdown drill at her preschool and what you should do if you are stuck in a bathroom. At that moment all innocense of what I thought my three-year-old possessed was gone.”

In the wake of horrific mass shootings like the one in Orlando last week, Feeley’s 3-year-old daughter was acting out a safety drill she had recently been taught in case there was active shooter in a building where she was trapped. The post has been shared more than 20,000 times in less than one week.

"In the schools they are very good about telling them that this is a drill for if someone that is not supposed to be in the building is in there," she said in an interview with ABC News. "They do not even bring up guns whatsoever, but the older kids understand."

There's nothing like a little encouragement from dad to help you overcome your fears.

After a father and daughter stopped to listen to a musician while walking down the street, dad whipped out his camera and began recording.

As his daughter listened to the music, he encouraged her to join in by dancing.


Here are the comments from the YouTube uploader to the father asking permission to post the video:
