The 9 biggest myths about ISIS

The 9 biggest myths about ISIS | digital divide information | Scoop.it
If you want to understand the Islamic State, better known as ISIS, the first thing you have to know about them is that they are not crazy. Murderous adherents to a violent medieval ideology, sure. But not insane.

Seth Dixon's curator insight, August 26, 11:43 AM

This interactive is a series of related articles, each designed to tackle popular narratives that have been constructed to explain ISIS; there are bits of truths in these myths, but they fail to fully contextualize the reality on the ground.  These nine myths are:

  1. ISIS is crazy and irrational
  2. People support ISIS because they like its radical form of Islam
  3. ISIS is part of al-Qaeda
  4. ISIS is a Syrian rebel group
  5. ISIS is only strong because of Iraqi Prime Minister Maliki
  6. ISIS is afraid of female soldiers
  7. The US can destroy ISIS
  8. ISIS will self-destruct on its own
  9. ISIS is invincible

A veteran teacher analyzes some of the arguments against tenure.
Bonnie Bracey Sutton's insight:

Teachers are fighting to do their job, while under attack from all corners. There is also teacher bullying that is very under-reported. IT is not fair to burden those who take up the mantle of teaching with insulting deprecation. It is a way to lose a lot of talented teachers who have valuable experience.

This animation distils hundreds of years of culture into just five minutes | digital divide information | Scoop.it
A team of historians and scientists wanted to map cultural mobility, so they tracked the births and deaths of notable individuals like David, King of Israel, and Leonardo da Vinci, from 600 BC to the present day. Using them as a proxy for skills and ideas, their map reveals intellectual hotspots and tracks how empires rise and crumble
The information comes from Freebase, a Google-owned database of well-known people and places, and other catalogues of notable individuals. The visualization was created by Maximilian Schich (University of Texas at Dallas) and Mauro Martino (IBM).
Bonnie Bracey Sutton's insight:

This is so beautiful, and interesting. A long way from just doing one year. A moving history. See it.
