Conforming to many people, Here's a pocket history of the web.
The report, released in two chunks, offers the most complete narrative of Clinton's email system. Although, web 0, Wikipedia, MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, and all that stuff I'm not strawmanning here. Unsurprisingly, the findings track closely with what FBI Director James Comey said when he announced the findings in July. This is the dominant history of the web as seen, for instance, in this Wikipedia entry on the 'Social Web. That's right! In a classic Friday news dump, the FBI on Friday afternoon released the results of its investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server and private email address. Along came web crawlers that helped you find what you wanted among all that information. Some time around 2003 or maybe 2004, the social web really kicked into gear, and thereafter the web's users began to connect with one another more often. Eventually, they do offer a few of what a computer technician quoted in the investigation might refer to as oh shit moments. Did you hear of something like that before, this is the case right? In the early days, the web was just pages of information linked to each other.
The original oh shit moment concerned an out of date server that was housed at a facility in New Jersey. In February, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump told supporters the ought to open up the libel laws against publications who write purposely negative and horrible and false articles. Also, in March 2015, The NYC Times reported the existence of the email setup. Yes, that's right! This week, his wife set out to test those legal boundaries. Anyways, in December 2014, Clinton aide Cheryl Mills asked someone to delete the old messages. While realizing he had not followed Mills's instructions, deleted anyway, Despite that, an unnamed staffer. Furthermore, the next day, a House committee on Benghazi requested the preservation throughout the Republican National Convention. Fueling her rumored breakdown, Tarpley claimed, were possible revelations she worked as a luxury escort in the 1990s before meeting her husband.
Among the many lessons I took away from the experience was one about journalism, it failed. In a meeting just before the site launched, my business partners six of the smartest, most successful political consultants in Washington debated which reporter would've been given an interview announcing our venture.
White Houses of Bill Clinton and George Bush.
Twenty years ago I published a book called Breaking the News. Then again, how the Media Undermine American Democracy. Without skepticism or criticism, afraid of confrontation. Thus lazy, now this reporter printed whatever minor bits of news and color aides fed him. I'm sure it sounds familiar. Nor did most other reporters forced to compete against a patsy who benefited from a policy of mutualassured promotion. Usually, the Atlantic ran an excerpt as a cover story, called Why Americans Hate the Media.
The main argument was that habits of mind within the media were making citizens and voters even more fatalistic and jaded about public affairs than they will otherwise be even more willing to assume that all public figures were fools and crooks, even less willing to be involved in public affairs, and unfortunately for the media even less interested in following news in general.
These mental habits of the media included a 'overemphasis' on strife and conflict, a fascination with the mechanics or game of politics rather than the realworld effects, and a selfprotective instinct to conceal limited knowledge of a particular subject matter by shifting to the politics of these questions, and by presenting disagreements in a hesaid/she said, a slew of blame on all sides fashion that is now known as false equivalence.
Fear is in the air, and fear is surging. a feeling of disorder is constant, overall crime rates can be down. Americans are more afraid today than they been in a long time. Every week seems to bring a totally new large or small scale terrorist attack, indoors or abroad. Now let me tell you something. Protests have shut down large cities repeatedly, and some have turned violent. I'm sure you heard about this. If Trump still stands a chance to win in November, fear could've been the key. Of course polls show majorities of Americans worried about being victims of terrorism and crime, numbers that have surged over the past year to highs not seen for nearly a decade. More than most politicians, he grasps and channels the fear coursing through the electorate. Fear pervades Americans' lives and American politics. Whenever invoking it in concrete and abstract ways, summoning and validating it, Trump is a master of fear. Mass shootings form a constant drumbeat.
This is the sixth installment in our series about school in a perfect world.
Read previous entries on calendars, content, homework, teachers, and classrooms. We asked prominent voices in education from policy makers and teachers to activists and parents to look beyond laws, politics, and funding and imagine an utopian system of learning. They went back to the drawing board and the chalkboard to build an educational Garden of Eden. Responses was lightly edited for clarity and length. Furthermore, we're publishing their answers to one question any day this week.
For at least a few decades, Americans are drilled in the superiority of tote bags. Cotton tote bags, by contrast, exhibited the highest and most severe global warming potential by far since they require more resources to produce and distribute. Remember, many businesses have stopped offering plastic sacks, or provide them for a modest but punitive price. Bagrecycling programs was introduced nationwide. A well-known fact that is. Because they're friendly for the environment, reusable bags are good, we're told. On top of this, surprisingly, the authors found that in typical patterns of use and disposal, consumers seeking to minimize pollution and carbon emissions should use plastic grocery bags and later reuse those bags at least once as trash can liners or for other secondary tasks. In 2008, the UK Environment Agency published a study of resource expenditures for various bags. So, disposable bags, in addition, are dangerous. Now regarding the aforementioned fact... Municipalities across the country have moved to restrict the consumption of plastic shopping bags to avoid waste. Seriously. Canvas bags might actually be worse for the environment than the plastic ones they are meant to replace. Let me tell you something. Conventional plastic bags created out of highdensity polyethylene had the smallest 'peruse' environmental impact of all those tested.
What if the United Nations didn't exist, right? Since for nearly all of human history, It's a question easily answered, it didn' History teaches us that order in international relations is the exception, rather than the rule, Kevin Rudd, the former Australian prime minister, writes in a completely new report on the uncertain future of the UN. We tend to think of the United Nations as just another part of the global furniture. Ok, and now one of the most important parts. Both prior to and following the Peace of Westphalia in 1648, disorder had been the dominant characteristic of 'interstate' relations, since the rise of the modern nation state. That is interesting. It's actually a recent addition.
Over the last 500 years, Rudd notes, there are four major efforts in Europe to construct order after periods of sustained carnage.
Just after the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic wars, in 1815; in 1919, after World War I; and in 1945, after World War I, Thirty Years' and Eighty Years' wars. The jury is still out on the fourth. The first three of these ‘orders' have had, at best, patchy records of success. You should take this seriously. The ideal of having it all job, family, happiness had been in the feminist conversation at least since Cosmopolitan founder Helen GurleyBrown's 1982 memoir. It may been the inspiration for the new Kanye West video in which an oiledup woman gyrates in a gym, has sex in a shower, and turns into a cat creature among a herd of sheep. Generally, it was the subject of Anne Marie Slaughter's controversial 2012 Atlantic cover story questioning whether mothers can achieve true work/life balance without wider political and social changes.
That woman is the singer Teyana Taylor, a rising RB singer and dancer. That day, he asked her to star in Fade. While explaining the video's origin to Vogue, she recalled running into West at a recording studio and chatting with him about being engaged to the NBA star Iman Shumpert, with whom she had just had a daughter. Iman and to him it was a dope moment to just see love like that, to see that you can really have it all, she said. That day, he asked her to star in Fade.
