Svar på vanliga frågor om Nya Classroom!
(Hittade inte länken i någon annan tråd i denna grupp vid en snabb sökning. Om någon länkat till den tidigare, säg till så länkar jag till den tråden här.)

Den viktigaste frågan.. va fa..en hände med OM-sidan besvaras!

Why can’t I add class materials on the About page?

We removed the About page, so you can no longer add class materials there.

However, soon you’ll be able to add materials to the Classwork page. The materials can be grouped into topics and reordered, similar to other Classwork page items.

Alltså, det kommer en lösning som känns som att den blir en godtagbar ersättare, om det blir enkelt att Låsa Fast den kategorin längst upp. Annars får vi alla ge det som feedback, så att vi kan det.

#107 - The Week Ending 8.17.18 iin the Age of Trump

Every week in Age of Trump is a new adventure, not a Raiders of the Lost Ark type of adventure, but one in which historians will look back and find a treasure trove of rich and relevant material when they begin to document, for generations to come, how America lost its way.

Here are just a few story lines which caught my eye last week.

o The prosecution in the Paul Manafort trial rested, and the defense did too, interestingly enough, without offering a defense. Apparently they were so tired listening to the mountain of evidence against the ostrich-wearing, tax fraud and former campaign chairman for President Trump, they just gave up. That’s one theory anyway. The more popular thought is that theyknow that Donny Boy will simply issue Manafort his ‘Get out of Jail Free” card less than one week after his conviction comes down and his “throw away the key” sentence is doled out.

o By my count, exactly 11 players exhibited some form of protest during the national anthem in the first week of the NFL pre-season (3 Eagles, 3 Jaguars, 3 Seahawks and 2 Dolphins). These 11 represent less than .5% of the 2,340 players currently on NFL rosters. Despite this, Trump’s August 10th tweet referenced “NUMEROUS players, from different teams, wanted to show their outrage” and said they “should be suspended without pay”. These “numerous” 11 players seem to get a lot more attention from our President, while the 565 refugee children who still remain separated from their parents don’t even rate a tweet. Maybe the President with the big brain needs as remedial math course in order to help him focus on the larger and more important matters.

o Steven Miller, the architect of the Trump Muslim ban (yes, let’s call it by its real name) and the separation of refugee children from their parents was strikingly dressed down by his own uncle in a Washington Post Editorial entitled “Stephen Miller Is an Immigration Hypocrite. I Know Because I’m His Uncle”. Dr. David S. Glosser, a retired neuropsychologist formerly of the Boston University School of Medicine, stated that if his nephew’s ideas on immigration had been in force a century ago, his family would have been wiped out. According to Dr. Glosser, his family came to the U.S. just a few years before the fear and prejudice of the “America first” nativists of the day closed U.S. borders to Jewish refugees. And sadly he noted that only seven of the 2,000 Jews who remained in their village of Antopol, Belarus survived the Holocaust. Before this story broke, Miller was a leading contender for the biggest scumbag in an administration of scumbags. With his own uncle’s latest revelation, he has now vaulted into the pole position.

o Family feuds in the White House were the theme of the week as Kellyanne Conway got into a public spat with her husband over his critical comments about the President . During an interview with Washington Post reporter Ben Terris, Conway complained that her husband’s recent tweets about Trump were “disrespectful” and possibly violated their “marital vows”. A violation of their marital vows….for having a different opinion, for not drinking the Kool Aid. It’s hard to make this up, but with the President now doing his level best to stifle the free speech of his opponents, it looks like Kellyanne thought she would get in the act and decided she would warm up …by dumping on her husband first.

o Omarosa Manigault Newman began the Omarosa Book Tour with lessons learned from her mentor. The highly paid former Assistant to the President, who was fired in week 10 of the 13 episode first season of the Apprentice, was the only contestant to go 0 for 3 as Project Manager and to offer to have sex with Piers Morgan just to spice up the story line. Impressive credentials, to say the least. Omarosa’s first shots were to call “Trump a racist” and declare that “This is an administration where everybody lies”. Ho-hum Omarosa, tell us something we don’t already know. The White House Office of Personnel has been sifting through resumes for months looking for an adequate replacement for the controversial Apprentice star. Maybe Gary Busey and Meatloaf are still available. .

o Trump advocated a boycott of Harley Davidson after they announced they were moving production off shore to deal with tariffs now in play courtesy of the Trump administration. Capitalism, it’s now a crime, who knew?

o Trump sent a message to the entire national security community that dissent with him for any reason will result in personal punishment when he revoked the security clearance of former CIA Director John Brennan. The reason this is so remarkable is that it came from the White House and was never run by Trump’s own intelligence officials. Many Trump supporters viewed it as a show of great strength from this great man. The Wall Street Journal called it petty. And others declared it was a way for the President to distract from the Omarosa Tapes. If that's true, with a rumored 200 tapes still to go, we should expect to see many more revocations before the final season of this reality TV show comes to a close.

o One last interesting development, a new Gallup poll out last week showed that Trump’s approval rating has dropped to 39% while his disapproval rating increased to 56%.

Perhaps it is now beginning to dawn on a few open minded Trump supporters, that despite all of the adventures, week in, week out, and despite their own earlier desires for disruption, that the grass is not really any greener on the other side. Perhaps they now see, that it’s turning brown.

THIS is MANUFACTURED LUCK! (see: ideafaktory.com/success)

There might be 10 others in Karolina Protsenko's class with more talent, but she's the only one who hustled to play Despacito on the streets & create a YouTube channel for her music (http://bit.ly/2P5HtBk).

As a result, she went viral & opened countless doors for herself.

Inspecting a Piece of Chocolate For Explosives -- With A Pocketknife
Qasim Rashid, like many Muslims, was "randomly" selected for extra screening at the airport. After clearing the extra screening not once, not twice, but three times, Rashid was further detained and accused of being non-compliant. and breaking the law.

What had Rashid done? He chuckled when a Customs and Border Patrol cop inspected a piece of chocolate for explosives using -- get this -- a pocketknife. Yes, the explosive detecting pocketknife which will absolutely not cause an exploding chocolate to explode.

Standard equipment? Standard procedure? Well, it seems to be standard for someone traveling while Muslim to be treated with absurd indignities like this.. All too many times, discrimination and harassment is the standard.

Rashid was set free only after he answered one particular question from the supervisor of the supervisor of the cops who detained him. (Yes, it had to escalate that far up the chain of command). “What do you do for a living?” asked the super supervisor.

Rashid's answer. “I’m a civil rights lawyer with expertise on racial and religious discrimination and profiling.” They couldn't get him out of there fast enough.

Rashid is also a Truman national security fellow. According to their website, "Truman is a nationwide membership of diverse leaders inspired to serve in the aftermath of 9/11 and committed to shaping and advocating for tough, smart national security solutions".

Inspecting a piece of chocolate for explosives with a pocketknife is not one of them.

No one should have to be a lawyer to be treated fairly. And never, ever, should anything be inspected for explosives with a pocketknife. It's not illegal to laugh at a cop doing that. In fact, it should be illegal not to.

Hey....!
As a federal agency, Customers and Border Patrol "has a responsibility to protect Americans’ data, and by encouraging airlines to collect [face recognition] data, instead they are essentially abdicating their own responsibility," says EFF's Jen Lynch
