Texas Man Guilty of Murdering and Dismembering College Student After Falsely Claiming She Died During Sex

A Texas man was convicted Monday of murdering a college student who was found dismembered and burned in 2016.

The 12-member jury rejected Charles Dean Bryant’s defense that he panicked only after the 24-year-old woman died during consensual “kinky” sex.

Jacqueline Vandagriff, a junior at Texas Woman’s University, vanished on the evening of Sept. 13, 2016 — not long after she spent time with Bryant, 31, at a bar in Denton, Texas. Her remains were later found burning in a plastic kiddie pool in a park near Lake Grapevine.

Police soon uncovered security footage of her sharing a drink with Bryant, and they said the two eventually left the bar together.

Authorities also suspect that Bryant, 31, updated Vandagraff’s Twitter account after her death.

The night before her body was found, a tweet on Vandagriff’s account read, “I’m glad I decided to get off tinder and waked into a bar.”

“Never knew I could feel like this,” reads the tweet that appeared on Vandagriff’s page on Sept. 15, one day after her charred corpse was recovered.

Bryant had been charged with capital murder in Vandagriff’s slaying.

During her opening statement on April 9, defense attorney Glynis McGinty told jurors that Bryant is only guilty of evidence tampering but was not guilty of murder.

McGinty argued that Bryant “freak out” after Vandagriff’s death, which the defense claimed occurred during sex, and tried to hide her body.

“He went to Walmart at 4 a.m. and bought a shovel and goes back to his house where he had left Jackie and tried to dig a hole but the earth was too hard,” she told the jury.

But the prosecution argued otherwise, pointing out that Vandagriff’s purse was found in a garbage can in Bryant’s home. The prosecution also cited evidence that Vandagriff was bound.

The indictment against Bryant stated that he “killed and caused serious bodily injury to Jacqueline Vandagriff using a zip tie, a knife or machete, and an unknown object.”

“Jackie had just started a new path at TWU,” prosecutor Lucas Allen said in his opening statement, according to local TV station WFAA. “It was a good path, until an evil, destructive figure, Charles Bryant, stepped .”

Jurors in Fort Worth agreed with the prosecution. They deliberated less than three hours before finding Bryant guilty of murder. He was also found guilty of tampering with evidence.

The punishment phase of the trial is underway. Bryant faces up to life in prison.

PEOPLE’s call to McGinty were not immediately returned and it was unclear if Bryant planned to appeal.

Gucci, Polimoda Offer Scholarship to Determined Dutch Student

HAPPY ENDING: Determination can definitely pay off.
Florence-based fashion school Polimoda and Gucci are offering a scholarship to Dutch student Elisa van Barneveld, who in October launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise the money to enroll in Polimoda’s master in fashion retail and management developed in collaboration with the luxury fashion house.
Generating some buzz around her crowdfunding initiative through social media and digital communication, van Barneveld, who was turned down for a loan by her bank, succeeded in collecting 10,000 euros in three months, a sum equivalent to almost half of the tuition fee.
When Polimoda and Gucci learned about the student and her desire to attend the program, they interviewed her and decided to help her raise the total amount required to enroll.

Second Man Will Face Prison in 2011 Murder of Tennessee Nursing Student Holly Bobo

A second man will face prison time in the 2011 abduction and murder of Tennessee nursing student Holly Bobo.

John Dylan Adams was one of three men charged in the death of Bobo, 20, whose remains were found in the woods in 2014 not far from her family’s semi-rural Decatur County home, from which she had been taken more than three years earlier as she stepped outside to leave for school on the morning of April 13, 2011.

On Monday, Adams accepted a plea agreement charging him with facilitating Bobo’s murder, a charge that will place him behind bars for 35 years when sentenced, TV station WKRN reports.

The so-called Alford plea arranged by his defense attorneys and prosecutors — which does not admit guilt but carries the same weight, and cannot be appealed — would assess 15 years for facilitation of first-degree murder, and 35 years for aggravated kidnapping, to be served concurrently, The Jackson Sun reports.

Adams’ brother, Zach Adams, 33, was found guilty in September 2017 of eight charges related to the crime. Zach Adams accepted a plea deal arranged by his defense and state prosecutors that allowed him to avoid the death penalty — an outcome that was supported by Bobo’s parents — and was sentenced to life in prison without parole.

The third man facing charges in the case, Jason Autry, has pleaded not guilty, and prosecutors have said they wanted to delay resolution of his case while they dealt with John Dylan Adams, according to TV station WBBJ. Autry was a key witness at the trial of Zach Adams.

John Dylan Adams was scheduled to go to trial in May, and had faced a sentence of up to 51 years in prison if convicted at trial.

Bobo Was Raped and Drugged, Third Suspect Testified

During Zach Adams’ September trial, Autry — who has been offered the possibility of reduced charges and federal immunity in exchange for his testimony, according to the Sun — described in detail the alleged events leading to the murder and its aftermath.

Bobo’s brother, Clint, had testified that he heard voices outside of the family’s house on the morning his sister went missing, and then glimpsed a man dressed in camouflage walking Holly to the edge of the woods.

Autry, who acknowledged his addiction to methamphetamine and morphine, testified that on the day Bobo disappeared, he’d called his friend Zach Adams to buy a morphine pill. Autry, who went by the nickname “Train,” later met up with Adams.

“He said, ‘I need you to help me bury this body,’” Autry said.

Autry first thought the body might be that of someone who owed money to Adams and another man from a drug deal. “He said, ‘Train, that’s Holly Bobo,’” Autry testified.

Autry alleged that Adams eventually told him that he, John Dylan Adams, and a third man all had raped Bobo, who allegedly had been drugged.

A pathologist testified at Zach Adams’ trial that Bobo had been shot in the head, which Autry said occurred during an aborted attempt to throw her listless body into a river after Bobo appeared to stir.

Autry testified that two days after that incident, he asked Zach Adams what he’d done with “the ol’ girl.”

“We threw her out,” Zach Adams allegedly replied, according to Autry.

Ex-Teacher Debra LaFafave ‘Has Become a Christian and She’s a Great Mom’ Years After Student Sex Scandal: Friend

Wherever Debra Lafave goes, people recognize her.

Lafave became nationally-known in 2004 when she was arrested for having a sexual relationship with a student at the Tampa-area school where she taught. She was 24; he was 14. The story became international news — partly because female teacher sex scandals were relatively rare, and partly because Lafave was a tall, statuesque blonde.

The boy told police officers in Temple Terrace, Florida, that he had sex with Lafave three times in four days, according to court documents. One of those times was allegedly in a car while his 15-year-old cousin drove them around. He also said she performed a sex act on him multiple times, including during one encounter at her home.

In November 2006, Lafave pleaded guilty in Hillsborough County court to two counts of lewd and lascivious behavior. In court, she offered her “deepest apologies” to the boy and his family and said she was “deeply remorseful.” She also disclosed that she was undergoing treatment for bipolar disorder.

“My greatest regret would probably be the fact that I put this young man through this,” she said in court. She was sentenced to three years house arrest and seven years probation and was required to register as a sex offender.

Thirteen years have passed since her arrest, but Lafave is still constantly recognized in the Tampa area. “We’d go to the mall, and people just stare,” her friend, Joe Zuniga, tells PEOPLE. “She looks the exact same. She still gets hate mail about it. She hates the attention.”

Zuniga, a Latin recording artist, has known LaFave for more than a decade — and she cooperated with him in the publication of a book about her life, Debra Lafave: A Crown of Beauty for Ashes. The self-published book is sympathetic to his friend, who Zuniga says has grown both spiritually and emotionally since the scandal.

“She’s a completely different person when she was when she was 24,” says Zuniga. “She has grown up a lot. She has become a Christian, and she’s a great mom. She recently got married, and she just ignores the media. She knows it will always be there, but she focuses on her life now. It’s very normal.”

“She Makes No Excuses”

Lafave is now 37 years old, living in a modest 3-bedroom home in a small Tampa suburb. She had twin boys in 2011, but the relationship didn’t last. She recently got married again.

As a registered sex offender, Lafave is required to check in with the state regularly to give her whereabouts.

Zuniga says that Lafave understands the gravity of what she did in 2004. “She makes no excuses for what she did,” he says. “She has always owned up to it. She says, ‘If I could turn back time, I’d never would do that.’ She understands that she didn’t just negatively affect her life, but she hurt many other people, and she is still very sorry for it.” 

Lafave has not responded to PEOPLE’s request for an interview. “Everyone contacts her to tell her story,” says Zuniga. “I’ve asked her why she wouldn’t, and she says she’s just not interested in the attention. She wants to just live her life as a wife and mom.”

N.J. Substitute Middle School Teacher Accused of Sexually Assaulting Student and Sending Him Explicit Messages: Reports

A New Jersey substitute middle school teacher is accused of sexually assaulting a male student in addition to allegedly sending him sexually explicit messages online, the Associated Press, CBS News and NJ.com report.

Nataly Lopez, 27, has been charged with first-degree aggravated sexual assault, second-degree sexual assault and third-degree endangering the welfare of a child, the Union County, New Jersey, Sheriff’s Office said in a statement obtained by CBS News.

She allegedly had sex with the student in her car at least twice and exchanged messages with him for weeks, according to the AP.

Lopez taught in Elizabeth, New Jersey, but was not an employee of the school district there, according to these reports. Instead she worked for Source4Teachers, a third-party company that staffed substitute teachers for the district.

The age of the student involved has not been released. Law enforcement could not immediately be reached for comment on Monday.

• Want to keep up with the latest crime coverage? Click here to get breaking crime news, ongoing trial coverage and details of intriguing unsolved cases in the True Crime Newsletter.

CBS News reports that Lopez was arrested without incident at her home on Thursday afternoon and is being held in the Union County Jail.

In a statement, according to NJ.com, Elizabeth Schools Superintendent Olga Hugelmeyer said the district banned Lopez from entering its schools as soon as they became aware of the allegations against her.

“Law enforcement and social service agencies were notified, as was the substitute’s employer,” Hugelmeyer said. Source4Teachers said in its own statement that Lopez had been blocked from working with client school districts until police have finished investigating.

Lopez underwent both state and federal background checks as part of her employment, the company said, according to NJ.com. Her “background checks … showed no previous history of any illegal or inappropriate action,” the company said.

Lopez pleaded not guilty to her charges on Friday. She remains in custody and a detention hearing is scheduled for Wednesday, according to court officials.

It is unclear if she has retained an attorney who could comment on her behalf.

The school district did not immediately return a message seeking comment and a Source4Teachers spokesman was unavailable for comment on Monday.

Nicki Minaj Is Starting An ‘Official Charity’ To Pay Off Student Loans

Last weekend, hip-hop living legend Nicki Minaj made waves when she decided ― seemingly spontaneously ― to start making tuition and student payments for straight-A students who reached out to her via Twitter. 

On Friday, Minaj followed up over Instagram, describing some of the payments she’d made for the students ― at least one of whom started crying, she said. She also said she would go on “another impromptu payment spree” sometime in the next couple months.

Most notably, Minaj announced that she was in the process of launching an “official charity for Student Loans/Tuition Payments,” meaning kids who are having trouble paying their way through school could soon get some much-needed help.

“You’ll be able to officially sign up! I’ll keep you posted!” she wrote. 

Considering the amount of student loan debt in the U.S. has ballooned to over $ 1 trillion, we’re going to need quite a big charity.

Black College Student Group Stages Successful Three-Day Protest

Black students at the University of California, Santa Cruz, held a three-day protest to speak out against what they described as a “hostile climate” on the school’s campus.

The protest, which was held in one of the administrative buildings and stirred up national news, was put together by the school’s Afrikan Black Student Alliance. Their demands included four-year housing for black students to live in the school’s Rosa Parks African American Themed House and for the facility be painted the Pan-Afrikan colors of red, green and black, among others. By the end of the third day of protest, the school’s chancellor George Blumenthal agreed to all of the demands. 

The school’s Rosa Parks African American Themed House is currently open “to all students whose interests span historical, present-day, and future experiences of predominately Black/African American peoples” but the school agreed it will extend up to a four-year housing guarantee to “all students from underrepresented communities” who applied to and currently live in the Rosa Parks African American Theme House, according to The Santa Cruz Sentinel.

“We’re not asking for only black students,” Imari Reynolds of the A/BSA told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson last week, clarifying why the group’s demands don’t amount to segregation. “We’re asking for black students to have a guarantee to live in a house that the university advertises as a house that’s meant for black students.”

“We don’t speak for the white students, the Samoan students or the Korean students,” she added. “Right now we speak for the African or black-Caribbean students who are struggling on this campus and need housing while they’re in the house that is meant to protect them and live as a safe space that is currently only being occupied by five black bodies.” 

The group’s full demands are listed on their website and shown in full below:

Similar to EOP students and International students’ housing guarantees, we demand that ALL African Black Caribbean identified students have a 4 year housing guarantee to live in the Rosa Parks African American Themed House. Guaranteeing this would provide a viable living option to all ABC identified students regardless of housing status and college affiliation. We demand a written agreement by the opening of housing applications in April 2017.

We demand the university remove the beds and release the Rosa Parks African Themed House lounge so it can serve its original purpose. We demand the lounge be returned by Fall 2017.

We demand that the university fund the ENTIRE exterior of the Rosa Parks African American Themed House being painted Pan-Afrikan colors (Red, green, and black) by the start of Spring quarter 2017. These Pan Afrikan colors represent Black liberation, and represent our diaspora, and the goals of our people.

We demand that all new incoming students from 2017-2018 school year forward (first years and transfers) go through a mandatory in-person diversity competency training in the event that the online module is not implemented by JUNE 2017. We demand that the training be reviewed and approved by A/BSA board every two years. We demand that every incoming student complete this training by their first day of class.

“Having that red, black and green house in the middle of Stevenson College, which is a predominantly white-serving college, is a matter of symbolism and visibility,” Reynolds told Carlson. Stevenson College is part of the university’s several internal institutions. “Black students are on this campus. We do exist and we do pay to go here, just like our counterparts and we do deserve to be seen here on this campus.” 

On Thursday, the school’s director of News and Media Relations Scott Hernandez-Jason announced that the university agreed to their demands. Later that same day, Blumenthal also issued a written statement to confirm his commitment to the campus and its students. 

“Though we have been working with underrepresented communities, including A/BSA, we acknowledge that we have not done enough to engage with them successfully,” he wrote in a statement obtained by HuffPost. “The student demonstrators raised a number of issues with campus leaders, issues we fundamentally agree upon. Students from historically underrepresented communities deal with real challenges on campus and in the community. These difficulties include things that many people take for granted, such as finding housing or even just a sense of community.”

“We see these new measures as ways to meaningfully improve the ABC student experience here on campus,” he added, “and in doing so improve our campus climate.”

College Student Says She Was Kicked Out Of A Gym For Wearing A Workout Top

A sophomore at the College of Charleston was recently told to leave the school’s gym because of her tank top.

On April 19, Sarah Villafañe posted a photo of herself on Facebook wearing yoga pants and a cropped, black tank top ― what appears to be a rather normal gym outfit. According to Villafañe’s post, however, the College of Charleston gym staff did not think her outfit was up to gym standards. 

“I’ve worn this same outfit all day. Went to 3 classes and spoke personally with each of my professors today and they didn’t have a problem,” Villafañe wrote. “But when I walked into the gym they asked me to put on a different shirt. Obviously I didn’t bring an extra shirt to the gym and wasn’t about to wear my flannel while working out. So I just said mhm ok and went about my work out pretty pissed off that they even asked me to change.” 

Villafañe claims that a few minutes later, the gym manager approached her and asked her to put a shirt on. She recalls that that the manager said she’d have to leave if she didn’t change. 

“I bought this outfit to work out in because it’s COMFORTABLE. What is the issue?” Villafañe wrote. “Why can’t I work out in this outfit?”

Read Villafañe’s full Facebook post below. 

As of Wednesday afternoon, the post had received over 1,000 likes and 500 comments. 

Villafañe later added an update to her post, writing that the gym staff contacted her and clarified that they made her leave for “sanitary concerns.” “They never made those sanitary concerns clear when they asked me to change,” Villafañe wrote. “They told me I need ‘more coverage’ and nothing more.” 

A spokesperson for the College of Charleston, Mike Robertson, told TODAY that many skin diseases can be contracted at gyms

“Because of this possibility, the College of Charleston and many other colleges and universities follow best practices that require people in the gym to wear a full shirt while working out in order to minimize skin exposure to possible infectious agents,” Robertson told TODAY. 

According to Villafañe, there are no dress code requirements on display at the gym or online. 

“Many people have told me that they have seen girls wearing similar outfits to mine in the [College of Charleston] gym, as well as men wearing muscle tees that expose their midriffs,” she told TODAY. “It is interesting to me that the men I have seen wearing jeans in the gym (a quite obvious violation of their one dress code rule, ‘Athletic attire must be worn’) were not bothered or kicked out for not abiding by the dress code rules.”

Why ‘Shots Fired’ Made An Unarmed White Student The Victim Of A Police Shooting

Filmmakers Gina Prince-Bythewood and Reggie Rock Bythewood are aiming to uncover the complexities of America’s criminal justice system with their new Fox drama series “Shots Fired.”

Starring Sanaa Lathan, Tristan “Mack” Wilds, Stephan James, Helen Hunt and Aisha Hinds, the 10-episode series chronicles the aftermath of two racially charged shootings in a small North Carolina town following African American police officer Joshua Beck (played by Wilds) killing an unarmed white college student.

The decision by the husband-wife team to reverse the narrative of police brutality came during the early stages of the show’s development, according to Prince-Bythewood.

The “Love & Basketball” director tells The Huffington Post that the story was inspired by George Zimmerman’s much-publicized 2013 trial in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, in which the former neighborhood watch coordinator received over $ 200,000 from supporters to help fund his legal defense. 

“What struck us after the Zimmerman trial was how they kept reporting on how much money was being donated to George Zimmerman,” she said. “And it was a shock that so much of the population was empathizing with him and not the 17-year-old boy who was killed for absolutely no reason. And it shocked us, but not everyone was seeing that. And the fact that when these shootings happen, it seems like the first thing that happens is that people start to demonize the victim and make excuses for what happened.”

“So we felt if we flipped it, it would give people who normally don’t deal with this an opportunity to feel what it’s like to be in our shoes, so to speak,” she continued. “And hopefully empathize and understand so that when it happens you’re not desensitized anymore.”

The show’s recurring themes of race and social justice also delve into the related economic effects of federal private prisons and America’s school-to-prison pipeline.

Through the years, privately owned prison facilities have faced scrutiny over safety and security, especially in comparison to federally run prisons.

Various reports have concluded that students of color face harsher disciplinary action and are more likely to be pushed out of school than their white counterparts ― all of which contributes to America’s increasing mass incarceration rates and the disproportionate number of black and Latino prisoners.

“We don’t think people understand and know about the pipeline and what private prisons do and how they make money and how corrupt it is and how it absolutely affects policing,” Prince-Bythewood said. “That was one of the things that we wanted to do with the show is be able to open it up and show this issue from every seat in the house, not just the victims and the families and the police, but how it rises up into the politics and how laws are made and why they’re made to benefit people in power.”

“All of this affects the people on the ground. The private prison complex is a horrifying thing,” she added. “And also what happens in our schools and the equity in schools can absolutely affect a child’s chance of living life.”

In addition to her hope for the show’s characters to spark more activism in America, the 47-year-old filmmaker also wants politicians and law enforcement officials to take note of the show’s underlying messages to help create a more unified America.

“We hope that we give a blueprint,” she said. “Our show isn’t just ten hours of venting, but hopefully at the end of the ten hours we’re offering some thoughts on how things can change.”

“Shots Fired” airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on Fox.

Missing College Student Found Dead in Submerged Car — Weeks After Accidentally Driving into River

Police in Kansas City, Missouri, confirmed this week that missing college student Toni Anderson — who vanished in January after sending a cryptic text to a friend — was found dead in a car that was pulled from the Missouri River last week.

Authorities say Anderson’s car had been submerged for weeks after she accidentally drove into the water soon after going missing early on Jan. 15.

Anderson, 20, left work at the Chrome club in Kansas City just after 4 a.m. that day and was on her way to meet up with a friend. But police say she never made it.

She was pulled over at 4:30 a.m. by a North Kansas City, Missouri, police officer — a separate jurisdiction from Kansas City — for a routine traffic stop for an illegal lane change, which resulted in a warning.

Police said she then stopped for gas, and her mother, Liz Anderson, previously told PEOPLE her daughter’s debit card was declined at 4:33 a.m.

At 4:42 a.m., Toni texted a friend, “OMG just got pulled over again.” It remains unclear if she was referring to the 4:30 traffic stop or a subsequent one. She wasn’t seen alive again.

A police spokeswoman tells PEOPLE detectives have found nothing to suggest foul play factored into Toni’s death. The spokeswoman declined to discuss the case in detail, citing the department’s ongoing investigation.

But mom Liz Anderson says authorities have assured her the college sophomore’s death was accidental — though it seems her daughter tried to escape the water.

“I am relieved that it was nothing more than a tragic accident,” Liz tells PEOPLE.

“There was no foul play; had no broken bones, and there was nothing on her body that would indicate any type of a struggle,” she says. “It is horrible. But they finally found her and now, we have a bit of closure.”

• Want to keep up with the latest crime coverage? Click here to get breaking crime news, ongoing trial coverage and details of intriguing unsolved cases in the True Crime Newsletter.

Investigators are waiting on autopsy results, which may provide them with additional information about how Toni died, the police spokeswoman says.

Toni’s mother says she probably became confused while driving in the dark that morning — steering her car onto a boat launch and into the frigid water.

Toni’s 2014 Ford Focus had a tracking device that sent out pings every eight or 10 seconds. On the morning of her disappearance, the tracking device sent out its final ping from a gas station not far from where her body was recovered.

“ believe she was confused and was turning around in a park, and that her GPS may have directed her to go the wrong way,” Liz says.

“If you look at the boat ramp she drove off of, it looks like a regular road — especially at night, when it’s dark,” she continues. “The police believe the ramp was icy and that she may have tried to stop but the car went into the water.”

• Pick up PEOPLE’s special edition True Crime Stories: Cases That Shocked America, on sale now, for the latest on Casey Anthony, JonBenét Ramsey and more.

There were signs that Toni tried to get out of her car once it began sinking.

“The police told me that her window was down and that her seat belt was off, so they figure she was trying to get out,” Liz says. “The current of the river was too strong and the cold water rushed in just too quick for her to escape. That’s what the police have determined.”

Toni, whose body has been cremated, will be laid to rest on Tuesday during a funeral scheduled for 11 a.m. inside the Risen Savior Lutheran Church in Wichita, Kansas.

Toni studied marketing at the University of Missouri-Kansas City and, in her spare time, reviewed music festivals, according to her family. Her mother has described her as “a beautiful, smart, intelligent, hard-working, kind and loving person.”

“We are all just a mess right now,” Liz tells PEOPLE after confirmation of Toni’s death, “but we are surviving and getting through. We miss her so much.”

Manchester By the Sea Director Defends Casey Affleck After Student Journalist Slams the Actor

The Oscar-winning writer/director of Manchester By the Sea is slamming a student journalist from his alma mater for writing an opinion piece highlighting the sexual harassment allegations against the film’s star, Casey Affleck.

Kenneth Lonergan condemned the article in a letter to the editor of The Wesleyan Argus, in which he accused the sophomore journalism student of writing a “tangle of illogic, misinformation, and flat-out slander” against Affleck, who recently won an Oscar for his performance in the film.

Last week, in a piece titled “How Wesleyan Is Complicit in Affleck’s Sexual Misconducted by Endorsing Lonergan ’84,” assistant opinion editor Connor Aberle criticized the college for its “praise” of Lonergan, and called Affleck’s Best Actor win “severely problematic.”

“Wesleyan University cannot insist on claiming credit for Kenneth Lonergan unless they also acknowledge their complicity in the success of a perpetrator of sexual violence,” Aberle wrote. “Lonergan essentially won Affleck his Oscar by handpicking Affleck for his movie.”

Aberle’s comments refer to the two sexual-harassment lawsuits that were filed against Affleck in 2010 by two women who worked with him on the film I’m Still Here. Affleck has denied the allegations, and settled the suits out of court for undisclosed amounts. In the settlement, the actor did not admit any guilt, and he and his accusers are barred from discussing details of the case.

Lonergan responded to Aberle’s article with an opinion piece of his own, titled, “How Connor Aberle and The Argus are Complicit in Slandering Casey Affleck.” The director slammed Aberle’s writing as slander, writing, “Only the author’s presumed youth can possibly excuse his deeply offensive display of ignorance, and warped PC-fueled sense of indignation.”

RELATED: Casey Affleck Responds to Criticism Following Controversial Oscar Win

He added, “He writes as if Casey Affleck were actually guilty of a crime. In fact, it was alleged 7 years ago, in a civil lawsuit for breach of contract, that Casey sexually harassed two women formerly in his employ. Casey denounced the allegations as being totally fabricated. Like most civil suits, this one was settled out of court by mutual consent on undisclosed terms … In other words nothing was proved or disproved. So how does Mr Aberle dare to write as if he knows who was telling the truth and who was not?”

After Affleck won the Oscar, many took to social media to criticize the decision. In a recent interview with the Boston Globe, Affleck — the younger brother of Ben Affleck — addressed the criticism, saying, “There’s really nothing I can do about it. Other than live my life the way I know I live it and speak to what my own values are and how I try to live by them all the time.”

Affleck told the Globe that he is not permitted to speak about the now-settled lawsuits, and said that the people condemning him on social media don’t know the facts of the situation. “I believe that any kind of mistreatment of anyone for any reason is unacceptable and abhorrent,” he added. “Everyone deserves to be treated with respect in the workplace and anywhere else.”

Police Officer Stops Speeding Student, Then Fixes His Tie

Now that’s a clothes call.

When a police officer in Menomonie, Wisconsin, pulled over a speeding driver Nov. 30, he was considering giving a ticket, not a lesson in the sartorial arts.

Officer Martin Folczyk pulled the car over and discovered University of Wisconsin-Stout student Trevor Keeney, who was very agitated.

“I have to get a tie tied,” Keeney said, according to KMSP TV. “I have a presentation and I thought my buddy was home but he’s not, and I’m running behind.”

Officer Folczyk then asked for the necktie and immediately started multitasking, putting the tie around his own neck, and tying it, while making sure Keeney’s license and insurance checked out.

Folczyk’s nice gesture wasn’t without slight complications. When he handed the tie back, it was too short for Keeney.

Folczyk took the tie back from Keeney and re-tied it. He then gave it back and let the student go with just a warning.

Properly dressed, Keeney went on to get 92 percent on his presentation for an outside sales class, according to ABC News.

Of course, Dave Chappelle might have a few thoughts about this interaction.

Burnt-Out Art Student Tells Off Professor With Message Hiding In Plain Sight

A college student has turned the act of telling someone off into an art form.

Lama Ali, who attends school in Virginia, had three final assignments due on the same day for her fashion drawing class. Exhausted after working on one painting for seven hours straight, the 20-year-old decided to include a message in American Sign Language to her professor:

“You got me fucked up,” a bunch of hands in the painting spell out in ASL, interwoven among the female figures.

“Honestly the idea just came to me while I was finishing up the piece,” Ali told The Huffington Post. “I was looking at it and thought, ‘This could really use something else.’ And then the idea struck me: Why not secretly express how I was feeling while struggling at the library at 4 a.m.?”

Ali, who does not know ASL, told HuffPost she taught herself a little bit just for this particular assignment.

“You know it’s bad when you have to learn a whole other language to express how done you are,” she said.

Once the fashion design major had finished her masterpiece, she posted it to Twitter on Dec. 7, where it has received over 113,000 likes and 48,000 retweets. And people really love her unbridled level of full-on pettiness.

“As petty as the idea was, I was actually really excited to make this piece,” Ali said. “Because I really felt like I was making something that showed my creativity and emotion rather than just completing the assignment.”

But, pettiness aside, most people straight up love it:

Ali said that she decided to use sign language because she wanted the message to be there, but not be immediately clear. She also wanted to practice drawing hands, so ASL seemed like a great way of marrying both those ideas.

“I remembered seeing a post on Tumblr long ago with a similar phrase in sign, and I thought the letters would look cool with the figures on the painting.”

Inspired by the post, she decided to look up the letters in ASL to spell out the message. Someone on Twitter even did the good work of circling them in the painting:

Ali told HuffPost that when she finally presented the piece to her professor in her class, he absolutely loved it.

“Most of my friends in class actually knew about the secret message, so I was really surprised when no one laughed or blew my cover during critique.”

She also admits that her professor still doesn’t know about the message, despite her post getting so much attention.

“The last time I checked, he still had no clue,” she said.

Make Lists Not Fists: A Student Survival Guide to Stress-free Productivity

Make Lists Not Fists: A Student Survival Guide to Stress-free Productivity


Most of us become regular to-do list makers at some point in our lives. We tend to scribble them down carelessly on Post-it notes, in diaries, on pieces of scrap paper, without any sense of forethought. If we get too busy, however, such a system tends to collapse. We have way too many Post-its tacked to our wall. Our diary becomes a blur of crossed out to-do items and illegible comments. We get stressed and foggy. What’s needed, in such busy times, is a proper to-do list philosophy: a stripped-down, fine-tuned system that will allow you to use your lists in a highly efficient way. This is exactly what this book offers. Written with a student audience in mind (but useful for anyone with a high workload), Make Lists Not Fists will help you to de-stress, de-clutter, and take charge of your productivity – all through the power of lists. Topics covered include:-How to set up an effective digital time management system with your smartphone and laptop-How to use a diary properly (hint: keep it almost completely empty)-How to focus only on what is urgent and important, and forget about everything else”It actually works. I cannot recall one more stressful moment since I started working with it.” Debby-Esmée de Vlugt, college student.

�De viva voz!: An Intermediate Conversation and Grammar Review Course (Student Edition + Listening Comprehension Audio CD)

�De viva voz!: An Intermediate Conversation and Grammar Review Course (Student Edition + Listening Comprehension Audio CD)


�De viva voz! is an exciting new Spanish conversation text that focuses on the development of oral communication while providing a review of key grammatical structures in a very approachable and “non-threatening” manner. Intermediate students have generally had the equivalent of a first-year overview of the language and in many cases are in transition to third-year culture/literature courses. They have a lot of information “in their heads,” but they often still have the need for conversational practice that actively uses structures and vocabulary they have already studied. Through creative exercises, brief summaries of grammar, and a carefully sequenced chapter structure, �De viva voz! helps instructors realize their principal goal in a conversation course: to see their students engaged in conversation in Spanish and improving their level of oral proficiency on a daily basis.

Antonio Banderas Turns Fashion Student

BANDERAS’ NEW CLOTHES: Having comfortably established himself as a film star, Antonio Banderas is turning his hand to fashion. This week, the Spanish actor posted an image on his Instagram account of him standing amid tailor’s mannequins, to chronicle what he called his “2nd week of studies at Central Saint Martins,” calling the experience “intense, exciting, serious and fun all at the same time.”
A spokeswoman for Central Saint Martins confirmed Thursday that Banderas is studying a short course in bespoke tailoring at the London art school, which runs over four weeks.
“[Banderas is] starting from scratch and learning the basics of bespoke tailoring,” the spokeswoman said, noting that Banderas had spoken to the college earlier this year about enrolling in a tailoring course. The spokeswoman declined to comment on whether Banderas is planning to launch his own line. A representative for Banderas could not be reached for comment Thursday.

Academy for Difficult Girls Student File #5: Ellie

Academy for Difficult Girls Student File #5: Ellie


Another student is enrolled at the Academy, but Ellie doesn’t quite know it: having engaged in Live-Action Role Play (LARP), she thinks the Academy is just one more game, and carefully ignores all the signs that indicate otherwise. Only after weeks of fellatio drills and Natural Breast Expansion treatments does she realize that there really is no safeword, no escape clause, that she and the other students really and truly are trapped. The Academy for Difficult Girls is a “girl’s school” where women (always over 18) are forced through an “educational” curriculum to suit the desires of their sponsors. Students wear a traditional schoolgirl uniform and attend classes like Fellatio 101 and Erotic Literature 201. Failure to perform in class will result in spankings and worse punishments. The Academy is housed in a large building at the center of extensive grounds, surrounded by a high wall. It is situated in a remote location from which escape would be difficult. Students are told that there has never been a successful escape. The Academy replicates most of the features of a girls’ school: there are dormitory rooms which students must share, a cafeteria serving grim institutional fare (some students are put on a special diet to lose or gain weight), a gymnasium where they can experience group showers under the eyes of their peers and of their muscular crewcut gym mistress. There are also paddlings, canings and whacks with a ruler to enforce discipline and a “remedial class” in the basement, where unco-operative students are sent for attitude adjustment. At the end of a term of study, Academy students are “graduated” and delivered to their sponsors, to take up their new lives as a submissive housewife, or an obedient maid, or even an age-regressed “stepdaughter”.

Bill Maher Calls College Student A ‘Little Sh*t’ For Criticizing Jerry Seinfeld

Political talk show host Bill Maher called a college writer a “little shit” on his HBO show Friday night for questioning comedian Jerry Seinfeld’s claim that college audiences are too politically correct.

After San Diego State University student Anthony Berteaux, a campus editor-at-large with The Huffington Post, penned an open letter to Jerry Seinfeld telling him he was disheartened that the comedian thinks college audiences are too quick to call jokes racist, sexist or prejudiced, Maher told him to back off during a segment on “Real Time.”

“Now, I sure wouldn’t want to be judged by what I wrote at 20, but stupid though I was in 1976, I wouldn’t have presumed to lecture George Carlin on comedy,” Maher said, referring to the late, famed comedian. “Though I sure wish George was around today to write a letter back to this kid, as only he could. But since he can’t, allow me: Dear you little shit, I’m sure you’re busy with your new letter explaining astrophysics to Stephen Hawking and giving jump shot pointers to Steph Curry, but try to get a clue.”

In an interview with ESPN earlier this month, Seinfeld echoed sentiments expressed by comedians Chris Rock and Larry the Cable Guy about young people taking offense too easily.

“I don’t play colleges, but I hear a lot of people tell me, ‘Don’t go near colleges. They’re so PC,’” Seinfeld said. “[Young people] just want to use these words: ‘That’s racist;’ ‘That’s sexist;’ ‘That’s prejudice.’ … They don’t know what the hell they’re talking about.”

In Berteaux’s open letter, he challenged Seinfeld’s argument and cited Amy Schumer as a comedian whose jokes about sensitive subjects like rape successfully highlight injustices.

“It isn’t so much that college students are too politically correct (whatever your definition of that concept is), it’s that comedy in our progressive society today can no longer afford to be crass, or provocative for the sake of being offensive,” he wrote. “Sexist humor and racist humor can no longer exist in comedy because these concepts are based on archaic ideals that have perpetrated injustice against minorities in the past.”

Rice University Student Turns His Dorm Room Into A Ball Pit (VIDEO)

By now, you’ve probably heard every reason ever to come back to a guy’s room. From watching a movie to checking out his fish tank, the opportunities are endless. While it’s easy enough to turn down a night spent getting halfway into The Notebook before the MO begins, it’s almost impossible to turn down a quick tumble in the ball pit. No, that’s not a double entendre, this college student quite literally built a ball pit in his dorm room.

David Nichol, a Rice University senior is obviously brilliant — and not just because he’s majoring in computer engineering.

Understanding Adventures of Huckleberry Finn: A Student Casebook to Issues, Sources, and Historical Documents

Understanding Adventures of Huckleberry Finn: A Student Casebook to Issues, Sources, and Historical Documents


Since the time of its publication in 1884, "Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" has generated heated controversy. One of the most frequently banned books in the history of literature, it raises issues of race relations, censorship, civil disobedience, and adolescent group psychology as relevant today as they were in the 1880s. This collection of historical documents, collateral readings, and commentary captures the stormy character of the slave-holding frontier on the eve of war and highlights the legacy of past conflicts in contemporary society. Among the source materials presented are: memoirs of fugitive slaves, a river gambler, a gunman, and Mississippi Valley settlers; the Southern Code of Honor; rules of dueling; and an interview with a 1990s gang member. These materials will promote interdisciplinary study of the novel and enrich the student’s understanding of the issues raised. The work begins with a literary analysis of the novel’s structure, language, and major themes and examines its censorship history, including recent cases linked to questions of race and language. A chapter on censorship and race offers a variety of opposing contemporary views on these issues as depicted in the novel. The memoirs in the chapter Mark Twain’s Mississippi Valley illuminate the novel’s pastoral view of nature in conflict with a violent civilization resting on the institution of slavery and shaped by the genteel code of honor. Slavery, Its Legacy, and Huck Finn features 19th-century pro-slavery arguments, firsthand accounts of slavery, the text of the Missouri Compromise of 1820 and the Fugitive Slave Law of 1850, and opposing views on civil disobedience from such 19th- and 20th-century Americans as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Stephen A. Douglas, and William Sloane Coffin. Nineteenth-century commentators on the Southern Code of Honor and Twain’s sentimental cultural satire directly relate the novel to the social and cultural milieu in which it was written. Each chapter closes with study questions, student project ideas, and sources for further reading on the topic. This is an ideal companion for teacher use and student research in English and American history courses.
