Update: First Asian American Appointed to Trump Cabinet

Update: First Asian American  Appointed to Trump Cabinet | Business News & Finance | Scoop.it

South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley has been chosen by President-elect Trump as an ambassador to the United Nations.

The daughter of Indian immigrants who spoke harshly about the rhetoric of Donald Trump, but later said she would vote for him, has accepted. The announcement was made this morning in a news release from the Republican Party.
“Our country faces enormous challenges here at home and internationally, and I am honored that the President-elect has asked me to join his team and serve the country we love as the next Ambassador to the United Nations,” said Governor Haley.

Haley is the first woman and first Asian American appointed to a cabinet-level post by Trump.
Haley received kudos about how she got her state through the tragic shooting in Charleston last year that left nine people dead at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church. She later successfully navigated a sensitive topic in her state by pushing for the removal of what many considered a racist symbol, the confederate flag, from state grounds.

“Governor Haley has a proven track record of bringing people together regardless of background or party affiliation to move critical policies forward for the betterment of her state and our country,” said President-elect Trump. “She is also a proven dealmaker, and we look to be making plenty of deals. She will be a great leader representing us on the world stage.”

Most students can’t tell fake news from real news, study shows

Most students can’t tell fake news from real news, study shows | Business News & Finance | Scoop.it

If you thought you heard the last on fake news, you were sadly mistaken.

A Stanford study found that the majority of middle school students can’t tell the difference between real news and fake news. In fact, 82 percent couldn’t distinguish between a real news story on a website and a “sponsored content” post.

Of the 8,704 students studied (ranging in age from middle school to college level), four in ten high-school students believed that the region near Japan’s Fukushima nuclear plant was toxic after seeing an unsourced photo of deformed daisies coupled with a headline about the Japanese area. The photo, keep in mind, had no source or location attribution. Meanwhile, two out of every three middle-schoolers were fooled by an article on financial preparedness penned by a bank executive.

It seems that those surveyed in the study were judging validity of news on Twitter based on the amount of detail in the tweet and whether or not a large photo was attached, rather than focusing on the source of the tweet.

The WSJ, which first reported on the study, says that a big part of solving this problem among young people comes down to education, both at school and at home....
