Dustin Davis's insight:

With the changing ways and times in today's society, it makes good sense that doctors and hospitals will be using social media.

I found his article really interesting. The idea of doctors and hospitals using social media seems a bit strange to me, but I guess it makes sense in today's society. I found it surprising that so many healthcare professionals are using social media to reach out and inform their patients. Since the patients seem to be benefiting from this, and encouraging the practice, I think that more institutions should encourage social media out reach. If outreach like this translates to other areas, such as informing others of Obamacare or other government programs, then we have the potential to make better informed citizens out of a lot more people.
Haley Abrams's comment, May 2, 2014 11:15 PM
I agree with Benton on this article. While I to was shocked to find out that hospitals are using social media as a form of communication with their patients, I thought that it was a very smart way of keeping up with the current times. Also this is a great way of informing the public on topics that they normal would not take the time to read on a different page. Overall I think that this was a very smart move be these hospitals and I think that more should follow in step.

“ The latest challenge for Republicans: young, educated urbanites are moving into suburban strongholds the GOP once banked on for national victories. The newbies begin reshaping these suburbs into smaller-scale cities: more Starbucks, more public transport, more apartments—and more Democrats.”

Benton Blank's curator insight, May 8, 2014 12:03 AM
This article does a good job of briefly touching on some of the many ways that the political landscape is changing. Although the article focuses more on how suburban areas are become more urban, shifting their political standings, I am sure that the same thing is occurring in many urban, rural, and other settings. I think that it is a good thing for politicians to keep in mind, the country is as cut and dry as it used to be, and they are only going to find that campaigning is going to become much more difficult as a result of this.
Ann Marie Rydberg's comment, May 9, 2014 3:44 PM
I agree with Benton that as the country changes at such a rapid rate, the political landscape is sure to be changing too. If politicians don't keep up with these changes, they will likely be left behind.

I find it sad that universities around the nation, including this one, are finding out that they have to cut programs. Money is tight everywhere, and it's dissapointing that students will not be able to get the same quality education than other students from years prior.

Leadership and the Tricky Politics of Public Opinion

Leadership and the Tricky Politics of Public Opinion | Gov and Law Dustin Davis | Scoop.it

Benton Blank's curator insight, April 30, 2014 6:17 PM
This article was really interesting. I had never really thought about just how powerful the public opinion can be in creating and passing regulation. The article explains how FDR covertly nudged the public's opinion of WWII in order to pool the necessary resources to intervene in the war. I think that this is something that is still vitally important. If enough people have the same opinion, that idea will eventually effect the legislation being passed. It also makes me wonder, how many of the commonly held opinions are a result of some law maker nudging the public.

Crazy that there are so many people in our country illegally. It's great that some people actually do help our country but some illegals also hurt it as well. Our government needs to step up and figure out our immigration problem.
Andrew Beighley's comment, May 18, 2014 8:08 PM
This article is about how illegal immigration affects the US. The number of illegal immigrants is rising every year, and something needs to be done to stop it. The reason many of these people come here illegally is because they want a better future, but they don't want to have to wait for years to get it.
Mitchell Forrest Enerson's curator insight, May 21, 2014 2:02 PM

There are too many people that are getting into our country illegally and it needs to be controlled. We need to lock down borders and allow easier legal immigration. We would love to and need to have immigrants in our country but they need to become immigrants legally. Our government should make this top priority.
