Here's why your smartest friends probably have the biggest gaps on their resumes, despite having loads of relevant experience and pedigree educations.

Despite having "loads of relevant experience, lots of personality, and even pedigree educations," there's a good chance that your most brilliant, overachieving friends and acquaintances are those who have suffered the longest periods of unemployment, says Maurice Ewing, PhD, chief executive and founder of Conquer, in a recent LinkedIn post.

A judge struck down tenure and other job protections for California's public school teachers as unconstitutional Tuesday, saying such laws harm, especially poor and minority ones, by saddling them with bad teachers who are almost impossible to fire.

"I'm really glad that the judge has done that," said Carolyn Riolo, a grandparent who supports the judge's decision. "You have to have good teachers to teach children, you know, how to be good adults." In a landmark decision that could influence the gathering debate over tenure across the country, Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Rolf Treu cited the historic case of Brown v. Board of Education in ruling that students have a fundamental right to equal education.

On Wednesday, 7-year-old Darin Simak brought a different backpack from his usual one to Martin Elementary School. At first, he failed to recognized something that the school considered a weapon in the bag's outside pocket.

However, when Darin noticed the replica toy gun, knowing the rules, he decided to turn himself in. Darin took the toy to his teacher and said: "I'm not suppose to have this." Instead of telling the first grader to keep the toy in his bag and to never bring it to school again, the teacher called the principal and Darin was suspended.

Modern psychiatry has become a hotbed of corruption, particularly the kind that seeks to demonize and declare mentally ill anyone who deviates from what is regarded as the norm.

This is abundantly evident in the latest installment of the industry’'s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, or DSM, which dubs people who do not conform to what those in charge declare to be normal as mentally insane. The so-called "condition" for why a person might choose to resist conformity has been labeled by the psychiatric profession as "oppositional defiant disorder," or ODD. The new DSM defines this made-up disease as an "ongoing pattern of disobedient, hostile and defiant behavior," and also lumps it in alongside attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD, another made-up condition whose creator, Dr. Leon Eisenberg, admitted it to be phony on his death bed. As you might suspect from this type of open-ended description, almost any personal behavior perceived by someone else to be undesirable or strange might be categorized as symptomatic of ODD. Children who throw temper tantrums or fight with their siblings, for instance, might be declared to have this supposed mental illness, as might children who express disagreement with their parents or teachers.
