Conflict Kitchen serves up controversy

Conflict Kitchen serves up controversy | ED 262 KCKCC Su '18 | Scoop.it

Conflict Kitchen is an art project based in the centre of Pittsburgh which serves food from countries with which the US is 'in conflict'.  The founders get to define what conflict means - it can range from outright war to economic sanctions - and since opening in 2010 they have prepared food from Afghanistan, Iran, North Korea, Venezuela and Cuba.  But the restaurant's latest choice of cuisine, Palestinian food, has caused controversy in the city and even led to a death threat which temporarily closed the venue.  Critics pointed out that the US is not in conflict with the Palestinian people. They claimed that the pamphlets served with the dishes included 'anti-Israel' propaganda. But Conflict Kitchen's founders said the project was designed to encourage debate among Americans."

Questions to Ponder: What do you think the purpose of Conflict Kitchen is for the restaurant owners?  Many people choose restaurants for a cultural experience; what type of cultural experiences are these patrons searching for by eating at Conflict Kitchen?  What political overtones are there to these cultural encounters?  Is this a form of 'gastro-diplomacy?'

Exclusive: New Survey Shows a Majority of Business Leaders Believe U.S. Education ‘on the Wrong Track,’ Many Fear Poorly Performing Schools Could Harm Their Industries | The 74 | ED 262 KCKCC Su '18 | Scoop.it

"SCHOOLS ON THE WRONG TRACK, BUSINESS LEADERS SAY: Cities and towns looking to grow their economies are likely misdirecting their efforts if their priorities are not centered on education, a new survey of business leaders suggests. In a poll of 234 local business leaders about the state of their public schools and how to improve them, Business Forward found that a majority believe that American K-12 schools are “on the wrong track” — and 1 in 4 is concerned that poorly performing schools will negatively impact their businesses. Half of those surveyed said American schools are underfunded, and half of those business leaders were more concerned with poor students than their own children. Many called for increasing funding for the state’s neediest schools as a means of closing the opportunity gap between rich and poor districts, reducing income inequality, and supplying integral talent to their businesses. Read more about the findings."

California’s online community college will break new ground in higher ed

California’s online community college will break new ground in higher ed | ED 262 KCKCC Su '18 | Scoop.it

CALIFORNIA COMMUNITY COLLEGESCalifornia Community Colleges Chancellor Eloy Ortiz Oakley
California’s online community college will represent a new vision for higher education when it launches next year and the online education field is watching to see whether it succeeds.

The new fully online college draws from a variety of sources, including public universities’ online degree programs, corporate worker training initiatives and programs at for-profit colleges. California plans to blend those existing influences to create something without precedent: A statewide, online-only public college focused on short, career-oriented certificates.

Seth Dixon's curator insight, August 3, 4:28 PM

I just finished Hans Rosling’s book, Factfulness.  It was an absolutely delightful read (who wouldn’t want to imagine hearing Hans Rosling’s voice while relaxing on the beach?).  So much of the populace have outdated paradigms about the world and too many have an overly pessimistic worldview that everything is getting worse.  This is why FACTFULNESS is so needed day.  This term is used to describe a fact-based, data-driven worldview that is not overly dramatic, or fear-based.  In so many ways, the world has been consistently getting quantifiable better; this derived from an optimistic perspective, but a factful understanding of the world today.  This book is his clarion call to understand the world as it actually is and is the culmination of his professional achievements.  Now that he has passed away, it feels like a major part of his lasting legacy.  If you’ve ever used his TED talks, Gapminder, the Ignorance Project, or Dollar Street resources, this is a must read.

David Navarro's curator insight, April 7, 2017 1:38 AM
A survey was done by the University of Wisconsin and t the rates of hungry and homeless students at community colleges across the country are higher than previously thought. The results show that one third of community college students go hungry and 14 percent are homeless. Students go through years of schooling just to go to college, receive a degree, and work for the rest of their lives. As kids we were always taught to do what we want to do in life, some of us want to be college graduates with a good career that pays well, the country is making it difficult for us college students to reach our goal. Yes there is a lot of scholarship offerings, grants, and loans that we can receive, but the cost of college is just too high that even with the help, students are still dropping out and even becoming homeless.

Since 2005, the US Peace Memorial Foundation has directed a nationwide effort to honor Americans who stand for peace by publishing the US Peace Registry, awarding an annual Peace Prize, and planning for the US Peace Memorial in Washington, DC. These projects help move the United States toward a culture of peace by recognizing thoughtful and courageous Americans and U.S. organizations that have taken a public stand against one or more U.S. wars or who have devoted their time, energy, and other resources to finding peaceful solutions to international conflicts. We celebrate these role models to inspire other Americans to speak out against war and to work for peace.

Weapons of mass deception? | Learning with 'e's | ED 262 KCKCC Su '18 | Scoop.it
Fake news. Alternative facts. Deception. Lies.

The media seems full of reportage on how social media carries content designed to deceive users. This recent article from the BBC News website calls into question some of the electoral results, including allegations of deliberate targeting of voters during the Brexit referendum. There does seem to b growing evidence that this may have been perpetrated, but in the midst of all the hyperbole and accusations, what role does social media actually play in the deception of the masses? How much of these problems are actually the fault of the social media, and to what extent are Facebook, Twitter and other popular platforms actually culpable?
