Tackling Trigger Warnings with Alison Vingiano

morningamp:

Buzzfeed writer Alison Vingiano joined Molly Adams and Brian Babylon to trace the history of the term “trigger warnings.” Different media platforms warn you of graphic content in their own ways, from ratings on movies to verbal cautions on radio or TV news. But the rise of “trigger warnings” on the Internet, cautioning against racist language, snarling dogs, or even food has spilled into academia and created its own enemies who feel that “TWs” limit free thinking.

•             Kathy Chaney, WBEZ Midday Producer

In our monthly news roundup, we’ll talk about the recent news that we consider good news and that we consider bad news. We’ll also talk about some of the stories that made us say, WTF?!

Here’s one of the stories we’ll be talking about, from host Richard Steele:

This is a really awful “sign of our times” and the down side of how technologically advanced we are as a society and how available the technology is…to everyone!  Recently, it was reported that several 8th graders who attend a middle school in northwest Suburban Barrington, have been sexting (sending inappropriate images among themselves), using their smart phones.”

The IHSA Disqualified Homewood-Flossmoor Coach and Players for Recruitment

morningamp:

Yesterday just hours before the state playoff tournament was set to begin, the Homewood- Flossmoor basketball team was eliminated from the tournament because their head coach had illegally recruited players. The IHSA been trying to strike a deal with the team by offering 6 players the opportunity to stay and play in the tournament while the coach and the 11 players eliminated could not play. One of the eliminated players filed a restraining order that would have allowed the team to keep competing in the playoffs, claiming that the parents and the players were unaware of these eligibility requirements. On the flipside, the team did have more training time during the offseason from other teams, so did the recruiting even matter? The AMp hosts Brian Babylon and Molly Adams along with Dr. Coya Paz discussed this story and explored further into the issue of gentrification.
