Sex in the classroom

Posted by paolo on 26 January, 2007

A normal classroom assembly of the Technical and Commercial Institute “A.Capriotti” in San Benedetto del Tronto (AP – Italy) has been transformed in something very different (they say because of the desolating emptiness of the moral and cultural education of some students).

Saturday morning, during the usual school hours, in one of the freshmen’s classroom, there was (scheduled) one of the usual monthly class’ assembly where the students – without the teachers, as their rights grant – were supposed to discuss about scholarship things like their courses, their educational trips, the students’ initiatives and everything similar.

But during that hours some students closed the door to make something different: a boy and a girl got on the desk and began doing oral sex, in the presence of their amused classmates that arranged around the two capturing the view with their mobiles while another group of classmates – forced to tolerate? – went in a corner to escape the situation.

Then an explosion of MMS with videos and photos began to expand in the air thanks to the mobiles, reaching a lot of friends that sent in turn the photos and the videos to other friends, again and again so that the whole city was aware of the fact in a couple of days.

But some of the students, once at home, told the story to their parents. And also that the episode was not the only happened in their school. So some of the parents got enraged and went to the principal and as soon as Thursday afternoon she took some measures. Maybe also some legal charges have been applied.

The first measure of the principal has been immediate: 15 days of suspension from the lessons (but with the obligation of attending of the lessons) for the actors, with the notification of their family of the facts.

Now seems that the boy has left the school to begin a work while the girl is frequenting the lessons.

WordPress 2.1

Posted by paolo on 23 January, 2007

Heya! I’m really excited about it: WordPress 2.1 is out! I think I’m going to use it on a test server and begin to apply the (_*MANY*_) modifies I’ve done to the other WP I use for that hightraffic site. The best feature I pray for is the MySQL optimization… Let’s be honest and say that WP is slow!

Now let’s go to vote for 2.2

P.S.: also Akismet got an update to 2.0, let’s downlaod it”

Ruini

Posted by paolo on 22 January, 2007

Ruini, if Saint Jesus Christ told everybody to forgive, why the hell you didn’t celebrate Welby’s funeral while you think to be illuminated by the same Jesus? From your old point of view he was a sinner, OK, but why the hell you didn’t forgive him? I bet that Jesus Christ wouldn’t have behaved the same…

Is there a genealogy web editor?

Posted by paolo on 17 January, 2007

I should investigate if there is a genealogy web editor. It’ll be fun to have an international view of people’s genealogy… we can do a site for it, can’t we?

Edit: I just found [via a spam blog that trackbacked this entry] that there at least two “genalogy software”on the web. The first is Family 2.0 that is closed now but will open as a public beta on March 2007, and and the second is Geni (tag’s “Everyone’s related”). Sometimes spam blog are usefull :) Now I’ve to find some more site like those…

Edit2: Geni looks really good. It suffers of being too new (I’m the 170151th ID) but it’s fully Web 2.0. Not really fast from here (Italy) but, I repeat, really good.
