Travis Barker Talks About 2008 Plane Crash That Nearly Killed Him
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Drummer Travis Barker of Blink-182 can now add "author" to his name. Barker is releasing his memoir, called Can I Say: Living Large, Cheating Death, and Drums, Drums, Drums, on Oct. 20.  In the book, Barker talks about surviving the plane crash he was in during 2008, which killed four others. The drummer escaped the crash with the late DJ AM (real name Adam Goldstein) and both suffered second- and third-degree burns. Barker shared an excerpt from his upcoming book with Us Weekly. "At that moment, I felt like I was running for my family. I didn't care about anything except being with my kids, my father, my sister, Shanna ... I didn't think I was going to survive," Barker wrote.  DJ AM and Barker were flying back from a concert in Columbia, South Carolina, when the private jet they were in became engulfed in flames. Eyewitness William Owens saw the plane crash happen when he was driving down the highway.  "It ignites -- it crashed, in fact -- went across the highway and crash ...

Fire Breaks Out On Cruise Ship
Huffington Post - over 3 years
BALTIMORE — An announcement from Royal Caribbean cruise ship staff that passengers needed to go to their muster stations because a fire had broken out roused Mark J. Ormesher from his stateroom on the Grandeur of the Seas early Monday. Ormesher said in an email to The Associated Press that immediately after the captain's announcement, his room attendant knocked on the door and told him and his girlfriend to grab their flotation devices, saying it wasn't a drill. Orsmesher, a native of England, who lives in Manassas, Va., said he and his girlfriend smelled acrid smoke as they went to their muster station, the ship's casino. The crew quickly provided instruction. "This encouraged calm amongst the passengers," he said. Passengers were required to remain at their stations for four hours, he said, and the captain "provided us as much information as we needed to stay safe." Royal Caribbean said that the fire that began at 2:50 a.m. was extinguished about two hours ...

Will Carnival Cruises Get Safer?
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Carnival Cruise Lines' highest priority is to look at "learnings and potential changes" that can be made in the wake of the Triumph cruise ship that was stranded at sea a month ago, the company's CEO and president Gerry Cahill said Tuesday at the 29th annual Cruise Shipping Miami conference. "I can assure you that since this fire occurred, it's been the No. 1 priority for both Carnival Cruise Lines and Carnival Corp.," Cahill said. Over 4,000 people were on the Carnival Triumph when an engine room fire knocked out its primary power source on Feb. 10, leaving the crippled ship adrift. Carnival Cruise Lines, part of Miami-based Carnival Corp., owns both the Triumph and the Costa Concordia, which ran aground off the coast of Italy a year ago, killing 32 people. Carnival also owns the Splendor, which was stranded at sea for several days in 2010 after a fire. Cahill was the first of seven cruise line executive ...

UNC Faces Discrimination Complaint From Sexual Assault Survivors
Huffington Post - about 4 years
On March 10, 2012, Andrea Pino says she was raped at an off-campus party. She wasn't drunk and was only there to look after a friend, but because she suffered a concussion during the assault, she says she doesn't remember much beyond a hazy walk from the party back to her dorm room. "I just woke up in my bed covered in blood and not knowing what happened," said Pino, now a junior at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. Today she still doesn't know who he was. She says she's suffered depression and post-traumatic stress disorder, but when she applied for medical withdrawal from her classes, Pino said the Academic Advising office told her she was "being lazy." Over the next several months, Pino heard similar tales from more than 60 other sexual assault survivors at UNC. On Wednesday, Pino and UNC alumna Annie Clark, supported by fellow UNC student Landen Gambill -- all sexual assault survivors -- filed a formal complaint with the U.S. Department of Education's ...

Adam Goldstein: Anniversary of School Censorship Case an Opportunity to Change
Huffington Post - about 4 years
This Saturday marks the 25th anniversary of one of the dumbest things the Supreme Court has ever done to damage the educational process: the decision in Hazelwood School District v. Kuhlmeier. In Hazelwood, the Court found that a Missouri high school had the right to censor its school-sponsored newspaper because it contained stories about teen pregnancy and divorce -- two topics that might be "inappropriate" for younger teens. Prior to Hazelwood, the right to speak freely in classrooms was governed by Tinker v. Des Moines Independent Community School District, which says the First Amendment protects student speech except when the speech presents a substantial risk of physical disruption. Hazelwood lowered that bar substantially when the speech is "curricular," or attached to an educational activity in some way: a school need only provide a justification for censorship that is "reasonably related to legitimate pedagogical concerns." Since then, Hazelwood has become ...
