BATESVILLE, Miss. — Parents in Panola County want a teacher fired after they claim she went on a racist rant on Facebook.
WREG has learned the Batesville Intermediate School teacher has been put on administrative leave while the district investigates.
“I don’t feel right with her teaching him,” said parent Keboni Anderson.
She and other parents said they snapped a picture when they saw their child’s second-grade teacher post on Facebook, “If blacks in this county are so offended, no one is forcing them to stay here. Why don’t they pick up and move back to Africa where they will have to work for a living. I am sure our government will pay for it! We pay for everything else.”
“She came to me as a good person and then when I read the comment it rubbed me the wrong way,” said Anderson.
Other parents voiced their concerns too including, Tammie Thornton, who said she had issues with this teacher before.
“And then for you to be in a public school system! One where we’ve got black students, we’ve got white students, and we’ve got other students, you should not go on social media and say anything pertaining to race,” said Thornton.
South Panola School District officials sent WREG a copy of their policy that states the teacher and principal will have a meeting and the teacher could face suspension, dismissal or non-renewal. Read it here.
WREG reached out to the teacher but has yet to hear back.
She did post on Facebook, “I think my account was hacked. I keep getting messages about racist posts, but when I go to my page, I can’t see it.” She went on to write she posts about “cows, recipes and home improvement stuff not racism.”
“I don’t think her account was hacked. I really don’t,” said Thornton.
No word how long the investigation could take.
WREG has chose not to release the teacher’s name until the investigation is over.

Cybersecurity stocks were seen soaring last Friday, after Equifax Inc. (NYSE:EFX) reported a massive data breach. Per the company, highly sensitive personal data of approximately 143 million consumers has been stolen from its database. Reportedly, nearly two-third of the adult U.S. population has been affected due to this cyber attack.
The company late last Thursday announced that a data breach occurred between mid-May and July this year, which was discovered on Jul 29. Apart from some sensitive personal information, hackers have stolen credit card numbers of about 209,000 U.S. consumers and “certain dispute documents with personal identifying information” of nearly 182,000 U.S. consumers.
This is not the first instance when consumer data has been stolen from a company’s data base. However, sensitivity of the information exposed in Equifax’s data breach case makes it one of the worst in recent times. The latest data breach at the company will likely have a lasting impact as criminals can use the stolen resources for opening new accounts, applying for credit cards or loans, buying insurance, renting an apartment or even for tax frauds.
Shares of Equifax plunged nearly 14% last Friday after news of the cyber attack surfaced.
Cybersecurity Stocks Soar
The recent cyber attack at Equifax proved that most organizations across the world lack proper security measures.
Nonetheless, believe it or not, there is a positive side to this episode. A cyber attack is good news for cybersecurity companies because it increases the chances of security-related purchases by the companies and governments. Hence, investors flock to these shares, shooting up share prices.
Equifax’s Thursday’s announcement gave a sharp boost to cybersecurity stocks, particularly identity protection security providers.
Symantec Corporation (NASDAQ:SYMC), which has been enhancing its identity-theft protection capabilities through acquisitions like LifeLock, gained the most with its shares witnessing a 3.4% rise.
This was followed by FireEye Inc (NASDAQ:FEYE), which is specialized in providing web security, email security, file security and malware analysis. The stock gained 1.5% last Friday.
Another cybersecurity company, Proofpoint Inc (NASDAQ:PFPT), went up 5.8% during trading hours. But it lost its momentum later to close at just 0.3% higher. The company is one of the leading security-as-a-service providers and focuses on cloud-based solutions for threat protection, compliance, archiving & governance, and secure communications.
Fresh Boost for Security Stocks
So far, the year 2017 has witnessed massive cyber attacks, including the two ransomware attacks — WannaCrypt or WannaCry in May and Petya in June — which created global havoc. However, the silver lining to this entire episode will be the further rise in demand for security-related products among enterprises and governments across the world. This is anticipated to drive share prices to new highs in the rest of 2017.
Furthermore, with rapid technological advancement, organizations are increasingly adopting the “bring your own device” (BYOD) policy to enhance employee productivity with anytime/anywhere access. This trend, in turn, calls for stricter data security measures.
We believe the urgency for stricter security measures will compel enterprises, as well as governments to increase spending on cyber security software. According to a Markets and Markets report, worldwide cybersecurity spending will likely reach $101 billion in 2018 and $170 billion by 2020.
Jokiva Bellard suffers from lupus, a chronic autoimmune disease. The condition can cause joint issues, kidney problems and, most visibly, “flare-ups” that result in skin inflammation and lesions among other ailments.
‘DALMATIAN’ WOMAN SHOWS OFF SCARS TO RAISE AWARENESS FOR RARE SKIN DISEASE
The illness, which Bellard was diagnosed with at 17 after 17 different misdiagnoses – including eczema, high blood pressure and arthritis – has been a constant interruption to her life.
“This disease really impacted my life in ways that I never thought I would even have to experience as a young individual,” she said to Yahoo Beauty. “It prevented me from having a normal social life. It has taken my identity at times and also kept me out of school.”
But now, instead of lamenting her diagnosis, Bellard has chosen to document her lupus on Instagram, sharing revealing photos of what it’s like to live with the disease and giving a voice to those suffering. Her goal is to “be a voice for those who were scared to speak,” she tells Yahoo Beauty.
The message is important to Bellard who, even during times of remission between skin flare-ups, still found life difficult and often struggled with loving herself and completing goals she set for herself.
“Financially, it has even kept me from being employed,” she told Yahoo Beauty. “I would be doing chemo and my doctors did not feel that I should be working nor going to school because my body needed essential rest.”
Bellard says the disease makes her skin “supersensitive” and avoids going outside during peak sunlight hours, Yahoo Beauty reports.
Though Bellard has said she received mean comments when she first started her Instagram account – some people calling her “ugly” or insinuating she was a victim of domestic abuse – she keeps posting because of the “beautiful individuals that look up to [her] and that is what gets to [her] heart and soul,” she says.

“I want to give them a voice — that’s exactly what I do it for,” she says. “And if it takes me to show my life just to do it, then so be it.”
About 1.5 million Americans suffer with lupus, affecting mostly women who are likely to develop it between ages 15 and 44. For lupus sufferers, the immune system is unable to differentiate between healthy tissue and viruses, and attacks healthy cells and tissue.
THE “snob” artist who mocked scaffolders and said “these guys look like they got 1 GCSE” has returned to social media after issuing a grovelling apology.
Hetty Douglas, 25, had closed social media accounts following a fierce backlash in which she was accused of sneering at manual workers in an Instagram post.
After saying sorry today Hetty reactivated her Instagram page removing the offensive post and adding a link to her full apology.
A Facebook page in her name also appears to have been made public after the artist shut down online profiles as the post, taken at a central London McDonald’s on Monday, went viral.
The workers – who have eight GCSEs between them and NVQ levels, the equivalent of A-levels – had demanded an apology from the blogger for the “snobby” and “offensive” post.
In a statement on her website, she said: “There was a large group of guys in front of me, and some at the counter, some of who were bantering. No big drama. Quite jarring on an otherwise subdued Monday morning.
“I should have just let it go, but it hit a nerve so I took a photo of some of the men and posted to my Instagram account with a dig at their intelligence.
“Not nice and not clever and I didn’t really think it through.
“Of course, what I did was wrong, particularly because the guys I captured in the photo weren’t the loud ones.

“Also they were wearing working clothes – it turned out they were scaffolders – and it looked like I was saying that people who do manual jobs are stupid.
“That’s not my view and it was me that was stupid for not seeing how it might look.”
She added she had written to the men she pictured to apologise directly.
The group of workers earn around £45,000 each and have a host of qualifications between them.
Project Manager Marc Clarey has a B in PE, a C in Design and a C/C in Double Science, as well as an NVQ Level Three scaffolding (equal to two A-levels).
The scaffolders’ employer GKR Scaffolding hit back at the artist’s comment saying: “Scaffolding operatives are highly trained in technical capabilities and have to be able to work safely at height in the highest risk environments. It’s not a job everyone can do.
“Our scaffolders have worked as part of construction teams that built The Shard, are reconstructing Tottenham Hotspur’s new stadium, and renovating The Royal Opera House and the Royal Albert Hall.
“The skyline of London and many of its architectural icons would look very different without the skills of our staff.”
Lee Rowswell, the Group Director and Owner of GKR, has invited Douglas to visit the company.
He said: “We understand that Hetty would not have expected such an overwhelming reaction to her post.
“Therefore we would like to invite her to join us at GKR for a day and see our work on-site in London, meet some of the team and drop into the GKR Academy where we train scaffolders in technical and managerial skills.
“We have a skills gap in the UK that can be filled if more people realised that school cannot measure all abilities, and skills honed outside the classroom are just as valuable.
“We’d welcome the opportunity to show Hetty why we are proud of our work and the contribution we make.”
The proud mum of Warren Butt, 40, one of the scaffolders, branded the painter a “moron”, adding she had no right to judge her hard-working son.
Hetty Douglas’ apology
“I’m Hetty, and my story starts at McDonald’s. I was on my way to work in central London one morning and ran in to get some breakfast.
“There was a large group of guys in front of me, and some at the counter, some of who were bantering. No big drama. Quite jarring on an otherwise subdued Monday morning. I should have just let it go, but it hit a nerve so I took a photo of some of the men and posted to my Instagram account with a dig at their intelligence.
“Not nice and not clever and I didn’t really think it through. In the age of social media, the gap between having a thought and broadcasting it to thousands can be a few seconds.
“Of course, what I did was wrong, particularly because the guys I captured in the photo weren’t the loud ones. Also they were wearing working clothes – it turned out they were scaffolders – and it looked like I was saying that people who do manual jobs are stupid. That’s not my view and it was me that was stupid for not seeing how it might look.
“I became an instant hate figure.
“The attacks were based on a web of lies. I am not posh. I come from an ordinary family in Nottingham. I went to my local comprehensive with lads like the ones in McDonalds.
“I’ve always worked and never had hand-outs from my parents. Yes, I’m an artist, and yes I live in south London, but I’m a grounded person and was raised to work hard for what I’ve got. I acted irresponsibly.
“Although I photographed the men from behind, the papers managed to identify one of them who was justifiably upset with me. As was his mum. I’ve written to them to say sorry because I really am.
“I’m told that I’ve got no future with my career because no one will touch me. I hope that’s not true because I don’t think any fair person knowing the truth would wish that on me.
“For everyone else this is a cautionary tale: don’t make brash judgments on others, and certainly don’t put them on Instagram.”
Patricia Butt, from Wallington, South London, told Sun Online: “He’s always worked all his life and he looks after his son and provides for him.
“She wants to keep her mouth shut, she’s a moron. They are workers what does she expect.
“So my son does not have any GCSEs. He’s got manners, he’s been brought up proper.”
The colleagues were grabbing a bite to eat at the fast food chain near Piccadilly when the picture was taken.
Warren told Sun Online: “It’s not very nice. It’s made us look like a load of idiots when we are just trying to crack on and do some work.
“I would like an apology. I do not think it’s right she can take a picture of us without us knowing and say that. I’m just working – just earning a living for me and my son.
“What gives her the right to look at me or us in that way. She’s no better than me because she can draw.”
Social media users condemned the artist’s post with comments including “you wouldn’t last two minutes in the shoes of a tradesman”.
One said: “Look like regular working guys to me. Probably nice people love their kids n family work hard.”
Another said: “What a twonk she is. I wear safety boots and ppe too and I have a masters. What should someone look like who has grades?”
A third added: “What a ghastly person. They actually look like guys who do a decent day’s work. Maybe she doesn’t.”
Douglas, from Nottingham, moved to South London to study fashion illustration at the trendy University of the Arts and has been interviewed for art blogs and fashion brand Fred Perry.
Adding to his comments, dad of two from London, Marc, said: “She’s a snob. She just looked at us in our work clothes and judged us.
“I work hard, six or seven days a week sometimes, to earn money and give my wife and children a nice life.
“I thought it was funny when I first saw it but the more I think about it the more it boils me up.”
In interviews Douglas has bragged about being from “Shottingham”- a nickname used to describe her hometown’s link to gun crime – and said pals describing her would say she has a “big heart and is well funny”.
In August she told Hypebeast she hopes to move to New York or LA because she believes the cities’ art scenes are more “open-minded”.
She also spoke about her love of the fashion label Gucci and her plans for a solo show.
Douglas regularly speaks of how her artist mum inspires her saying she would skive off school as a youngster and go with her as she studied art.
On her website Douglas says that she makes work “that represents both the light and dark that comes with simply existing”.
Her Instagram account included a 2015 picture of Douglas holding a job centre booklet while wearing an expensive hoody made by Supreme.
Hundreds of memes were also posted including one of a McDonald’s worker with a bag of food captioned “here’s that attention you ordered”.
Douglas claims that her artwork “simultaneously conveys, subverts and celebrates the complexities of trust, sexual boundaries, and the labyrinth of unspoken intimacies of masculine/feminine truths.”
Titles of pieces shown on her website include “Good luck”, “You’re a snake” and “screw”.
A YouTube game reviewer was slammed yesterday after suggesting McDonald’s workers and said they should get “decent” jobs instead of “expecting handouts”.

NEW YORK — A stylus might seem, well, out of style in the tap-and-type world of smartphones. Yet it’s what sets Samsung’s Note phones apart from the competition.
That’s significant as Apple prepares to launch what’s expected to be a super-premium phone next week, one that will match many of the features in the new Note 8 phone . Though not its pen.
I was skeptical at first, but the stylus grew on me.
Still, the Note 8 isn’t going to be for everyone. Most people will be fine with Samsung’s S8 phones for a few hundred dollars less. The Note 8 is more for “power users” — those who use their phones a lot more than the average consumer. The Note 8 starts selling in the U.S. next week for $930 to $960, depending on the carrier.
What’s top on people’s minds probably isn’t the pen, but the phone’s battery, given last year’s Note 7 recall following a string of spontaneous fires. Samsung has stepped up its safety tests this year. Time will tell how well they work.
Samsung reduced battery capacity by 6 percent to make room for various safety measures. But there’s still plenty of juice. The phone still had two-thirds of its charge left after four hours of Netflix. Tasks such as email, Facebook and note-taking won’t be as draining.
GREAT FOR NOTE-TAKING … TO A POINT
A screen-off memo feature lets you use the stylus to take notes without having to unlock the phone. You can jot down a quick reminder while walking, or cross items off your shopping list at the store. It feels like real writing, without any noticeable lag. And writing a quick thought doesn’t feel as rude as opening an app and typing while with friends.
Unlike past Note models, this one lets you scroll down to write more than a single screen worth of notes.
But I had to retype my notes anyway, including impressions I jotted down for this review. Samsung’s character-recognition software couldn’t make out my chicken-scratch handwriting. For instance, “end up typing” got transcribed as “inn up yping.”
Past Note phones translated words you hovered over with the stylus. The Note 8 extends that to full sentences, though it’s on you to figure out that you have to tap the “T” icon to switch modes. And you need to specify the language you’re translating from, even though the Google Translate service the feature’s based on usually has auto-detection.
The translation feature also converts currency and units of measurements. That’s useful in figuring out that a 23-kilogram baggage limit means 50.71 pounds.
But it repeatedly failed to pick up measurements in centimeters. And it didn’t pick up on a common European convention of using a comma where the decimal point usually goes, so 4.20 euros became 420 euros, or about $500. The dollar is getting weaker, but it’s not that bad.
You can now handwrite text messages, instead of just typing them. Messages are sent as animated GIF files, so your friends can see your exact strokes, even if they don’t have a Note 8. Those who already pepper messages with emojis and other embellishments might like it.
CAMERA AND MORE
Beyond the stylus, the Note 8 mostly matches features introduced in Samsung’s S8 phones this past spring. This includes an “infinity display,” in which the 6.3-inch screen runs up to the edge, giving the phone more display without feeling much bigger. The fingerprint sensor is on the back, as with the S8, though it’s now farther from the camera lenses to reduce smudge.
And yes, that’s lenses. The Note 8 has a second lens on the back, with twice the magnification, matching Apple’s iPhone 7 Plus. This permits software tricks that blur out the background , though conditions have to be just right. I find the second lens more useful for zoom.
WAITING FOR APPLE
Apple is expected to announce new iPhones next week, including an anniversary edition that, according to published reports, will include a similar edge-less display, as well as a color-boosting screen technology called OLED, something Samsung has long used. Apple users will probably want to stick with that and avoid having to buy new apps for Android.
Current Note users, though, may want the Note 8, as Apple isn’t likely to include a stylus. And because of the Note 7 recall, the current Note models are getting old.
PLAYALINDA BEACH/KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FL – Following a successful engine test firing of the Falcon 9 first stage late Thursday afternoon (Aug. 30), SpaceX is targeting a post Labor Day launch of the U.S. Air Force’s unmanned X-37B reusable mini-shuttle – a secretive technology testing spaceplane.
The brief but critical hold down engine test took place at 4:30 p.m. EDT (2030 GMT) Aug. 31 at Launch Complex 39A on NASA’s Kennedy Space Center – as witnessed live by myself and several spectators from nearby Playalinda Beach Causeway. See my photos herein.
Both SpaceX and the Air Force announced the target launch date after completion of the Aug. 31 engine test.
“Static fire test complete,” SpaceX confirmed via Twitter soon after completion of the test, “—targeting Falcon 9 launch of OTV-5 from Pad 39A at @NASAKennedy on Thursday, September 7.”
The routinely done static fire test and involves conducting a full launch dress rehearsal and countdown culminating with igniting all nine Merlin 1D first stage engines during a hold down test at the pad.
The Merlin’s generated a combined 1.7 million pounds of thrust and a huge exhaust plume billowing into the air from the north side flame trench during the test, which lasted several seconds.
The plume soon swirled overhead and dissipated about 10 minutes later. Ignition was accompanied by a loud roar we heard screaming out from the pad in all directions. A number of folks driving to and from Playalinda Beach had stopped to ask me what I was photographing prior to the test and stayed to witness the event.
The rocket will be lowered rolled back horizontally on the transporter erector into the SpaceX processing hangar and the spaceplane housed inside the payload fairing will be integrated on top. The full stack will then be rolled back out and erected at pad 39A.
The hold down test firing is carried out without the payload bolted on top inside the nose cone to keep it safe in the event of a catastrophic failure event such as occurred precisely 1 year ago – when a Falcon 9 blew up during fueling for similar engine test with the AMOS-6 satellite resulting in destruction of the rocket as well as the customers satellite hardware at pad 40.
The exact launch time had been a closely guarded secret – until this evening.
The X-37B launch is apparently lunchtime Thursday, September 7 at 12 PM – 12:01 PM, according to a Facebook post by the U.S. Air Force Space Command and the 45th Space Wing at Patrick Air Force Base, Fla., posted Friday evening.
“The Air Force Rapid Capabilities Office is undergoing final launch preparations for the fifth mission of the X-37B Orbital Test Vehicle [OTV],” the Secretary of the Air Force Public Affairs announced. “The OTV is scheduled to launch on Sept. 7, 2017, onboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 launch vehicle.
The X-37B will be launched for the fifth time on the OTV-5 mission atop a SpaceX Falcon 9 on Sept. 7 from Launch Complex 39A on the Kennedy Space Center Florida into low Earth orbit.
The Boeing-built X-37B is processed for flight at KSC using refurbished NASA space shuttle processing facilities now dedicated to the reusable mini-shuttle, also known as the Orbital Test Vehicle (OTV). It launches vertically like a satellite but lands horizontally like an airplane and functions as a reliable and reusable space test platform for the U.S. Air Force.
But in another first, the OTV-5 mission marks the first launch of an X-37B spaceplane by SpaceX.
All four prior OTV missions launched on the United Launch Alliance Atlas V and ended with runway landings in either California of Florida.
“The many firsts on this mission make the upcoming OTV launch a milestone for the program,” said Randy Walden, the director of the Air Force Rapid Capabilities Office.
“It is our goal to continue advancing the X-37B OTV so it can more fully support the growing space community.”
The OTV-4 mission launched on the ULA Atlas V on May 20, 2015 from Space Launch Complex-41, on Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.
After spending a record setting 718 days in orbit, the X-37B program completed its fourth mission with a runway landing back at KSC’s Shuttle Landing Facility on May 7, 2017. Overall OTV’s have spent a total of 2,085 days in orbit.
Playalinda Beach is located just 4 miles north of pad 39A and offers an excellent launch viewing location for the OTV-5 mission – if officials allow it to be open to the public.
The engine test comes at the end of a very busy August with a trio of Florida Space Coast launches plus a Total Solar ‘Eclipse Across America’ sandwiched in between.
Also noteworthy is that OTV-5 will be launched into a higher inclination orbit compared to the prior four, serve as a technology testbed for multiple research payloads and will also somehow deploy several small satellites or cubesats.
“The fifth OTV mission continues to advance the X-37B’s performance and flexibility as a space technology demonstrator and host platform for experimental payloads,” the USAF said in a statement.
“This mission carries small satellite ride shares and will demonstrate greater opportunities for rapid space access and on-orbit testing of emerging space technologies. Building upon the fourth mission and previous collaboration with experiment partners, this mission will host the Air Force Research Laboratory Advanced Structurally Embedded Thermal Spreader payload to test experimental electronics and oscillating heat pipe technologies in the long duration space environment.”
SpaceX will also attempt another land landing of the 156-foot-tall Falcon 9 first stage back at Landing Zone-1 (LZ-1) at the Cape.
The Falcon 9 first stage is equipped with a quartet of landing legs and grid fins to enable the rocket recycling plan.
“The fifth OTV mission will also be launched into, and landed from, a higher inclination orbit than prior missions to further expand the X-37B’s orbital envelope.”
The daylight first stage precision guided landing should offer spectators a thrilling up close view of the rocket reusability technology envisioned by SpaceX’s billionaire CEO Elon Musk to drastically slash the high costs of launching to space.
The 11,000 pound (4990 kg) state-of -the art reusable OTV space plane is about a quarter the size of a NASA space shuttle. The vehicle measures 29 ft 3 in (8.9 m) in length with a wingspan of 14 ft 11 in (4.5 m).
The X-37B was originally developed by NASA but was transferred to the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) in 2004.
Since then most but not all of the spaceplane’s goals have been shrouded in secrecy.
Watch for Ken’s continuing onsite X-37B OTV-5 and NASA mission reports direct from the Kennedy Space Center and Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida.
