NEWARK — Elevated levels of lead caused officials in New Jersey’s largest school district on Wednesday to shut off water fountains at 30 school buildings until more tests could be conducted, officials said.
The district, Newark Public Schools, told the State Department of Environmental Protection on Monday that annual testing found concentrations ranging from undetected to above the department’s action level for lead, which is 15 parts per billion. That level requires additional testing, monitoring and remediation.
The department, which requested test results from previous years to perform a complete analysis, said in a statement that no building had more than four samples above the action level.
The department also said lead had not been found in the city’s water supply. “In the vast majority of cases where lead is found in drinking water, it enters through the water delivery system itself when it leaches from either lead pipes, household fixtures containing lead or lead solder,” the department said.

NYTimes: The World Has a Problem — Too Many Young People? What Next May Be Logan's Run? Is Thr Answer?
AT no point in recorded history has our world been so demographically lopsided, with old people concentrated in rich countries and the young in not-so-rich countries.
Much has been made of the challenges of aging societies. But it’s the youth bulge that stands to put greater pressure on the global economy, sow political unrest, spur mass migration and have profound consequences for everything from marriage to Internet access to the growth of cities.
The parable of our time might well be: Mind your young, or they will trouble you in your old age.
A fourth of humanity is now young (ages 10 to 24). The vast majority live in the developing world, according to the United Nations Population Fund.
Nowhere can the pressures of the youth bulge be felt as profoundly as in India. Every month, some one million young Indians turn 18 — coming of age, looking for work, registering to vote and making India home to the largest number of young, working-age people anywhere in the world.
Already, the number of Indians between the ages of 15 and 34 — 422 million — is roughly the same as the combined populations of the United States, Canada and Britain.
By and large, today’s global youth are more likely to be in school than their parents were; they are more connected to the world than any generation before them; and they are in turn more ambitious, which also makes them more prone to getting fed up with what their elders have to offer. Many are in no position to land a decent job at home. And millions are moving, from country to city, and to cities in faraway countries, where they are increasingly unwelcome.
Democratically elected presidents and potentates are equally aware: Aspirations, when thwarted, can be a potent, spiteful force. No longer can you be sure that a large swell of young working-age people will enrich your country, as they did a generation ago in East Asia. “You can’t just say, ‘Hey look, I’ve got a youth bulge, it’s going to be great,’ ” said Charles J. Kenny, an economist at the Washington-based Center for Global Development. “You’ve got to have an economy ready to respond.”
“It is the big development challenge these countries face — more decent jobs,” he added.
A case in point are the caste protests that paralyzed a prospering North Indian state in recent weeks. They were driven by a powerful landowning caste whose sons can neither support themselves through farming nor secure the jobs of their choice. So the protesters took to the streets demanding caste-based quotas for government posts. They blocked rail lines and set trucks on fire; the police say 30 people died in the unrest.
This is just part of India’s staggering challenge. Every year, the country must create an estimated 12 million to 17 million jobs.
Worldwide, young workers are in precarious straits. Two out of five are either not working or working in such ill-paid jobs that they can’t escape poverty, according to figures recently released by the International Labour Organization. In the developing world, where few can afford to be unemployed, most young workers have jobs that are sporadic, poorly paid and offer no legal protection; women are worse off.
Youth unemployment is especially striking in richer countries. Across Europe, youth unemployment is 25 percent, not just because of a sluggish economy but because many young Europeans don’t have the skills for the jobs available, from electricians to home health aides; it explains in part the surge of anti-immigrant sentiment on the Continent. In the United States, nearly 17 percent of those between the ages of 16 and 29 are neither in school nor working.
That does not bode well. An increase in youth unemployment is a better predictor of social unrest than virtually any other factor, warned Raymond Torres, the Labour Organization’s research chief. “The social contract is weakened because of unfulfilled promises,” he said.
In some ways, the global demographic portrait reflects what we are doing right: Our babies are far less likely to die, and our grandparents live longer. Women have fewer children, and die less often in childbirth. More good news: Primary school enrollment has shot up in the developing world. In India, for instance, nearly all children are enrolled in school.
But even those gains are uneven. According to the latest survey carried out by a national nonprofit called Pratham, half of Indian schoolchildren enrolled in fifth grade are unable to read from a second-grade textbook, and half cannot subtract. They’re in school, but they are not learning much.
What’s more, even modest education fuels ambition. Yet it can also frustrate those who can’t find work. Across the Middle East, where authoritarian rulers invested in education, youth unemployment is soaring — along with unrest.
The global generation gap is widening. In Germany, the median age is over 46, and in Russia, 39. In the United States, the median age is over 37; in India, 27; and in Nigeria, just over 18. China is running out of young workers so fast that it ended its decades-old one-child policy last year to allow married couples to have two children.
The worldwide age divide makes migration — along with job creation in the global south — critical to balancing the world demographically, according to Rainer Münz, head of research and development at the Erste Group Bank in Brussels. Mr. Münz proposes what he calls a system of “demographic arbitrage,” with industrialized countries competing for talent from elsewhere. Even China, he maintains, will have to enter that race.
“A demographic arbitrage between aging societies with a shrinking work force and youthful societies would be good thing, if the whole thing could be managed,” he said.
Many politicians are making the opposite case. Just last week, Donald Tusk, the president of the European Council, told migrants not to come to Europe, which has sought to stanch the flow by offering development aid to the migrants’ home countries.
YET development aid can’t tamp down dreams. As poor countries prosper and their young become more educated, they are more likely to migrate. It explains in part why India has the largest diaspora in the world: In 2015, 16 million Indians were living outside India, double the number in 2000.

Perhaps most worrisome for some societies is the bachelor gap.
In China, where girls have been systematically culled from the population, there were 34 million extra men in 2010, according to census data. In India, there are 17 million more men and boys between the ages of 10 and 24. That makes the marriage market even more competitive, which puts a man without a good job at a major disadvantage. Many are bound to be bachelors for life — a potent formula for violence, some scholars say, especially against women.
Little surprise then that the recent caste protests in India took place in Haryana, the state with the sharpest gender imbalance in the nation, with 879 women for every 1,000 men in the population. This lopsidedness stems from a disdain for daughters. Technology and rising incomes have allowed expecting couples to pay for illegal sex determination tests, and female fetuses are often aborted. A result is a surplus of young men, making it necessary to import brides from other parts of the country.
And so the parable of our times may really be: Mind your daughters, or your future will come to ruin.
Mar 2, 2016 17-Year-Old Black Student Beats Up White High School Teacher? And lLberal Keep Telling Us There Try To Stop Hate? Lot OF Hate Going On Here? You Think?
Those of you who might be surprised by this student’s actions shouldn’t be. This is very normal and customary for those who comprise the Black plague among us. Some may be inclined to think my words are an overstatement, but they’re not. Once you’ve been victimized by these savages, your entire perspective begins to change. For once in your life, you start to rethink long held assumptions about Blacks.
If you’ve truly arrived at enlightenment, you’ll become a ‘racist’ which, in reality, only means that you’ve removed the blinders and are now able to see Blacks as they truly are and not as they are portrayed by the media and White liberal enablers.
Check out the White liberal who tries to assess the situation, and offers typical DWL advice in the form of what’s termed “restorative justice.” The only justice these pavement apes need is the kind that comes from a rod against their backs. The over-educated fool also thinks the students need to be trained to “self-correct.”
Sorry, but you can’t teach gutter savages with a seared conscience to “self-correct.” Besides, isn’t that the role of parents? Yes, I’m aware that the Black kids are but a reflection of their dysfunctional, low-life parents. Still, it only serves to illustrate how government schools have essentially become surrogate parents because Blacks are unable to manage their own families.
Thus, the schools are left with the task of teaching Black kids how to cope with adversity without using violence, how to respect others and their property, and how to behave in a civilized and ordered society.
For the most part, it’s a fruitless endeavor.

African-American couple from Texas just went viral by accusing International House of Pancakes of racism. They say that their IHOP server put an offensive slur on their receipt.
One little problem: the alleged slur was “BLACK PPL.” Another problem: The waiter who put it on there was black.
I know what you’re thinking. To answer your question: No, it’s still March 3. It’s not April 1 yet. That’s how oversensitive we’ve become.
he story began with Arainia Brown and her boyfriend Rolman Sparkman traveling back to Austin along Interstate 35. According to KVUE-TV (via KHOU-TV) at about 3 a.m. they were feeling peckish, and when you’re hungry you want to go to a place where a half-gallon of boysenberry syrup is at your disposal.
And you know the only place for that — IHOP.
They ordered takeaway (shame, really — you want full access to that jug of syrup for as long as possible).
However, as they were about to leave, they noticed that the waiter had chosen to describe them as “BLACK PPL” because, one assumes, they were the only ones there:
The server was African-American as well, but that made no difference to Brown and Sparkman.
“I feel upset, I’m sad, I’m angry. Like this, it makes no sense,” said Brown.
“You could have asked me my name,” she added. “Don’t put, don’t label me. I don’t label you.”
Yes, well, she’s not the IHOP employee. There’s also the fact that people get offended all the time — at Starbucks mostly, but I can see an IHOP customer getting angry, too — when a name is misspelled or misheard.
