Would you work for free?

Jeffrey Epstein arrested on sex trafficking charges

Listening to the Giuffre documentary, she said they told her she was to be given training as a professional masseuse and then given a well paid job. She saw it as a career opportunity way better than her minimum wage + tips dead end job. It wasn't a "come here for 1 day" type of arrangement. Of cour

Paul Mescals reveals ...

How will schools be able to go back in September?

CNN are the channel one one story chastising people at beaches for spreading COVID and in the next story showing thousands of unmasked protestors crammed together saying that there is no risk. While Fox News says the opposite. So I'd take everything they say with a large grain of salt

I should clarify it's a STEM discipline that teaches the scientific method. You don't need to know anything about Physics to recognise a bad experiment fudging results when you see one

How will schools be able to go back in September?

Most other European countries with the virus under control have had schools back for months now. The recent "spikes" are all due to tourism, family gatherings or nightlife.
