Media Consensus: US Military Action Against Syria Is Coming

Standard

AFP Photo/Jewel Samad (Photo credit should r Get Media Newsletters: Syria , John Kerry , Media Syria , Syria Chemical Weapons , Syria Strike , Us Military Syria , Media News There appeared to be a hardening media consensus on Monday that some form of American military intervention in Syria is all but inevitable. After Secretary of State John Kerry forcefully denounced an alleged chemical weapons attack in the country, and said President Obama would come up with some form of “response” to the incident, many reporters and news outlets quickly framed his speech as a preamble to a military attack. Kerry, the Washington Post wrote , “left little doubt that the decision for the United States is not whether to take military action, but when.” The Wall Street Journal wrote that the speech was “the clearest indication yet that the Obama administration is preparing to attack President Bashar al-Assad’s regime.” The New York Times said Kerry’s remarks hinted the administration “was moving closer to a military response in consultation with America’s allies.” Twitter was full of similar pronouncements: It appears we’re in the “drumbeat” stage re: Syria w/U.S. officials. It’s coming, question is when, how hard and how long.

Byers junior high to go from unofficial dog park to DSST charter school

Empty since its closure in 2004, the fate of the former Byers junior high school has perplexed residents of Denver school district 7. The school, named after William Byers, founder of the similarly defunct Rocky Mountain News reportedly required costly repairs before it could reopen; in the meantime, locals took to using the abandoned grounds as a kind of speakeasy dog park, complete with extra plastic bags for pickup and water bowls for thirsty puppies. But in 2011, the Denver School of Science and Technology in Stapleton mounted a campaign to reopen Byers as a middle-school campus — and its efforts were successful: The new school — a DSST and DPS charter school partnership — is enrolling students for classes next fall. Westword spoke with Brad White, DSST’s enthusiastic new middle school director, about his ambitions for Byers. Dogs and their owners at play in Byers’s unofficial dog park Westword: What made DSST decide to move into the vacant Byers campus? Principal Brad White: We were brought to the campus, invited by the community and DPS to move in to this absolutely gorgeous building.

Community Colleges And Performance Funding

Standard

Well, how about pointing out to the dude that, no, espically in these times, community college faculty have absolutely no protection. Most are on very short contracts and can be let go without cause. Others are adjunct faculty who have no protections and can and are often not hired the next semester without any reason being given. Community college faculty are clearly under extrodanary pressures and will do most aanytthing that they arre told to do because they have no job protection and wortk on either a year to year or a semester to semester contract. Wasnt it a littlee telling that the dude simply vaguely referred to faculty having other avenues to prevent such abuses without bothering to mention what they migh be? As to the issue of whether a community college would be so unethical as to steer students into snap courses, OF COURSE they do that.
