An Ohio high school student was met with a cruel punishment for missing football practice, and now eight coaches are on leave as a potential lawsuit takes shape. 

The student’s father said that his son, who is kosher, was forced to eat an entire pepperoni pizza while his team watched, and was told that the other players would have to complete extra drills if he didn’t partake in the punishment. His spot on the team was even threatened.

The boy’s Hebrew Israeli faith prohibits pork from the diets of its members. 

“I felt very upset, I felt disrespected,” the high school junior’s father said. “Makes you question if they are doing their job. Obviously, I feel the culture is broken.”

What happens next to the coaches, and how did  the school district respond?

Video shows California houseboats high and dry thanks to a major drought

Multiple areas in California, including the city of Oroville, are experiencing a drought crisis. The dry conditions have only worsened this week, and the health of Lake Oroville is showcasing just how bad the drought is.  

The major lake is drying up quickly, and new photos and video footage are equally jaw-dropping to see. Dry lake beds are starting to be exposed and the water that is left is so low that houseboats are in danger of getting damaged or stuck. Many houseboat owners have pulled their floating homes from the water as they wait for water levels to rise again. At least 130 houseboats have been pulled from the lake due to the drought. 

Lake Oroville is not the only victim of the drought. Countless other reservoirs and bodies of water are at half capacity or have less than half of the water they usually hold. What else do we know about the historic drought and what does Lake Oroville look like at only 38 percent capacity?
