Seth's Blog: Drawing a line in the sand | New learning | Scoop.it
There are two real problems with this attitude: First, drawing lines. Problems aren't linear, people don't fit into boxes. Lines are not nuanced, flexible or particularly well-informed. A line is a shortcut, a lazy way to deal with

Opinion | I didn’t think I’d ever leave the CIA. But because of Trump, I quit. | New learning | Scoop.it
The administration’s disregard for the intelligence community makes it impossible to serve Trump in good faith.
Paul's insight:

Very troubling that the CIA has no trust in Trump "I couldn’t help but reflect on the stark contrast between the bombast of the new president and the quiet dedication of a mentor — a courageous, dedicated professional — who is memorialized on that wall. I know others at CIA felt similarly."

Media Literacy: Five Ways Teachers Are Fighting Fake News

Media Literacy: Five Ways Teachers Are Fighting Fake News | New learning | Scoop.it
In an era of national attention to what's real and what isn't, we asked educators to share their strategies for helping students sort out fact from fiction.
Paul's insight:

So important today to help students discern truth from fiction. The problem is there are so many adults to need to learn this too.  For example, lying and being a 'straight talker' are not the same thing.  More than ever, educators need to resist ignorance and teach students to use their mind and seek out the truth.

A Zen Master's Advice On Coping With Trump

A Zen Master's Advice On Coping With Trump | New learning | Scoop.it
It involves a lot more than meditating.
Paul's insight:

This idea of finding Trump within ourselves was also echoed last week by James S. Gordon, a psychiatrist as well as the founder and executive director of The Center for Mind-Body Medicine.

He wrote a comment piece in The Guardian, arguing that “Trump’s grand and vulgar self-absorption is inviting all of us to examine our own selfishness. His ignorance calls us to attend to our own blind spots. The fears that he stokes and the isolation he promotes goad us to be braver, more generous.”

When It’s Too Late to Stop Fascism, According to Stefan Zweig

When It’s Too Late to Stop Fascism, According to Stefan Zweig | New learning | Scoop.it
George Prochnik on Stefan Zweig, his memoir “The World of Yesterday,” the rise of Adolf Hitler and Nazism, and the ascent of Donald Trump.
Paul's insight:

How long will we have to act before Trump's own version of the Reichstag Fire? (from article)  "That fateful conflagration took place less than thirty days after Hitler became Chancellor. The excruciating power of Zweig’s memoir lies in the pain of looking back and seeing that there was a small window in which it was possible to act, and then discovering how suddenly and irrevocably that window can be slammed shut."

The best travel gadget ever is now available in Europe | New learning | Scoop.it
I love to travel. But I’m not keen on how hard it can be to stay connected while abroad. Roaming is still excruciatingly expensive. Even if your provider offers free roaming, it’s usually capped to near-2G speeds. And while hunting down free Wi-Fi hotspots is pretty tiresome, it doesn’t come close to how irritating it is …

The truth under siege: 2+2 does not equal 5.
Paul's insight:

From New York Times - Sometimes I try to imagine what Trump’s Reichstag fire moment might be. In February 1933, a few weeks after Hitler became chancellor, fire engulfed the parliament in Berlin — an act of arson whose origin is still unclear. A recent New Yorker article by George Prochnik quoted the Austrian writer Stefan Zweig on Hitler’s savage reaction: “At one blow all of justice in Germany was smashed.” What will be America's Reichstag Fire?
