Breaking with past practice isn't always cause for panic, however. Contrast the hysterical reaction to Trump's phone call -- and it's worth remembering that it was a 10-minute phone call -- with the fawning coverage of Obama's decisions to cast aside bipartisan U.S. policy on Cuba and Iran. Obama's moves were "bold" and "historic," and he has been cast as a courageous and visionary leader willing to set the country on a new course.

The Department of Health and Human Services is raiding several of its accounts, including money for Medicare, the Ryan White AIDS/HIV program and those for cancer and flu research to cover a shortfall in housing illegal youths pouring over the border at a rate of 255 a day.

HHS is trying to come up with $167 million to fund the Office of Refugee Resettlement that is accepting the youths, according to the Center for Immigration Studies.

Fidel Castro has died at the age of 90, Cuban state television announced on Saturday, ending an era for the country and Latin America.

The revolutionary icon, one of the world's best-known and most controversial leaders, survived countless US assassination attempts and premature obituaries, but in the end proved mortal after suffering a long battle with illness. read more


Why are you celebrating, Laura?


Its pretty simple, here is one example...

While Trump goes on a "Thank you America Tour"....

Hillary thanks her Millionaire donors... are you invited? She couldn't even look at you when she lost....

Here is another reason...

Trump supporter to @MMFlint: @realdDonaldTrump "has done more for me than any Democrat has done in my lifetime" https://t.co/iQ9xfZfLRZ -- Anderson Cooper 360° (@AC360) December 7, 2016

We should acknowledge TimeMags butt hurt over the whole thing....
"President of the Divide States Of America".....

American teenagers performed slightly worse than they usually do on the PISA -- below average for the developed world, which means they scored worse than nearly three dozen countries.

On average....

But when broken down by race, American Asian and & White students did well, as I have stated Americans have a good ability in the abstract, and its growing ...

Could the problem be cultural, economic for those demographics that didn't do well? Meaning the system is there to produce educated kids, its just viewed or capable of being taken advantage of.

OECD reports we spend about ~$12,000 dollars per student per year. If you took the number of students per teacher 16to1, you get $192,000 dollars per "teacher".

Where is that money going if not to the teacher? Reminding this every year.

Finally I am not opposed to CommonCore as an idea. There should be standards at the national level, but the standards should be on the quality of education, not what exactly and how it is being taught. The "new" math that I have seen is ridiculous, some teachers don't even understand it.

If you take Finland for instance, the teachers have great autonomy on how to educate their pupils. To me, its ironic people want more teachers to take home more money, but dictate what they teach ie less autonomy. IMO the autonomy is why you should receive higher pay. If the Federal government is going to dictate your lesson plan, you should be making $15 an hour.
