Trans Pacific Partnership: Obama ready to defy Democrats to push secretive trade deal

The TPP has drawn the ire of Democ­rats includ­ing Eliz­a­beth War­ren who object it will destroy jobs, lim­it online free­dom, increase out­sourc­ing and derail cli­mate agree­ments. Iron­i­cal­ly, it has made allies of his GOP rivals. The Trans Pacif­ic Part­ner­ship is a trade agree­ment so sig­nif­i­cant and impor­tant, its details can’t be disclosed.

(Missouri conference) What Is The Role Of Public Schools

After sev­er­al years look­ing at Com­mon Core; where it came from, who sup­ports it, how it is being imple­ment­ed, its impact on teachers/students/parents, and lis­ten­ing to the com­plaints of parents/the gen­er­al pub­lic about it, I view Com­mon Core as a symp­tom, not the cause of the pub­lic out­cry over edu­ca­tion.

What You Can Learn from Oakland’s Raw ALPR Data

Police cars mount­ed with auto­mat­ic license plate read­ers (ALPRs) wind their way through the streets of Oak­land like a “Snake” game on an old cell phone. Instead of eat­ing up pix­els of food, these cam­eras gob­ble down thou­sands of license plates each day. And instead of grow­ing a longer tail, ALPRs feed into a giant […]
