SUN SUNI KHABAR MAY 3RD, 2016
With the Indiana primary fast approaching, Texas Senator Ted Cruz is grasping at straws to keep Republican frontrunner Donald Trump from clinching the delegate majority. On Tuesday, Cruz unleashed a barrage of attacks on Trump, calling him a “pathological liar”, and an extreme narcissist. Cruz’s attacks follow Trump’s comments regarding his father, Rafael Cruz. Early polls project Trump winning Indiana, which would effectively eliminate both Cruz and John Kasich’s chances at winning the Republican nomination. As a result Cruz, according to former House Speaker John Boehner, allowed his “inner Trump” to come out, tearing down his opponent in a deeply personal attack.
TALC AND CANCER: BROTHERS IN ARMS
In three months, Johnson and Johnson has suffered two court defeats at the hands of people who claim that the company’s powder was carcinogenic. Gloria Ristesund was awarded $55 million by a St Louis jury, who ruled that talc, a common household product, was the cause of Ristesund’s ovarian cancer. While Johnson & Johnson claim that talcum powder is perfectly safe to use, major health organizations are ambivalent on the issue. The CDC has warned against the risks of inhaling baby powder, and as such, cautions people to avoid using the substance on actual babies.
BEHIND THE SCENES OF A FAIRYTALE
It’s a story that’s gripped the world of English football for the entirety of the season. In a maddening chase of “will they, won’t they”, we’ve watched intently as Leicester City took the Premier League by storm after avoiding relegation last season. With Italian Claudio Ranieri at the helm, former non-league striker Jamie Vardy leading by the teeth, and star winger Riyad Mahrez creating plays, the boys in blue took the trophy in incredible style. There were many factors going into this Cinderella story. Most notably, the promise of pizza for every clean sheet.
TEACHERS ON STRIKE IN DETROIT
Detroit’s teachers are taking a stand. More than 1500 called in sick upon discovering that the financially slim school district was only able to pay them through June 30. Furthermore, as most teachers receive their checks year round, the teacher’s union argued that teachers are essentially working for free. More than 90 schools are closed because, according to the union, the school district is refusing to guarantee teachers a paycheck. Many are flying out to Detroit to support the teachers during this time. Ironically, this whole fiasco is taking place during Teacher Appreciation Week.
