Utah State coach Matt Wells is done looking back, only focused on moving forward 27.6.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Logan • The plays he watched his team practice this spring looked familiar, and painfully so. The pitch and one-yard run that sealed the win for Air Force last September at Maverick Stadium. The protection problems that changed the complexion last fall at Boise State. The stalled drives and the 5-yard scamper that let Colorado State rally from 14 down, leaving him and his staff filled with frustration on the journey home from Fort Collins. “They’re not fun,” Utah State football coach Matt Wells ...

Borrowers wait and wait for promised college loan forgiveness 27.6.2017 SFGate: Business & Technology
Like thousands of others who studied at failed for-profit colleges, she was promised by the U.S. Education Department under President Barack Obama that her federal loans would be forgiven by now. Borrower advocates say the pipeline to loan forgiveness appears to have slowed significantly since President Trump took office, stirring concern that some students may be left in the lurch. According to the data, which were provided first to the Associated Press, another 7,300 cases are in the final stages of the process and will be discharged shortly, while the remaining 2,000 are currently being processed by the department. Ramos ran up $15,000 in debt to attend the American Career Institute, a chain of for-profit colleges that abruptly closed in 2013 after she received nine months of training as a medical assistant. [...] enrolled at MassBay Community College and working toward a certificate in surgical technology, Ramos says she hasn’t heard any update on her debt cancellation and worries she’ll still ...

Thinking Dangerously: The Role of Higher Education in Authoritarian Times 26.6.2017 Truthout - All Articles
(Photo: Wonderlane ) In authoritarian societies, where education is viewed as a threat, it is imperative to teach students to think dangerously and to develop a vision of society that connects private troubles to broader public issues. The fight for the rights of educators and education is central to politics because without a formative culture of questioning by informed citizens, we lose the foundation for a working democracy. (Photo: Wonderlane ) What happens to democracy when the president of the United States labels critical media outlets as "enemies of the people" and disparages the search for truth with the blanket term "fake news"? What happens to democracy when individuals and groups are demonized on the basis of their religion? What happens to a society when critical thinking becomes an object of contempt? What happens to a social order ruled by an economics of contempt that blames the poor for their condition and subjects them to a culture of shaming? What happens to a polity when it retreats ...

Climate Destabilization Causing Thousands of New Species Migrations: Plant, Animal, Insect, Bird 26.6.2017 Truthout - All Articles
A spate of new research studies has confirmed a disturbing pattern: climate disruption is confusing migratory birds, causing trees to relocate and allowing tropical diseases to spread northward. "Human society has yet to appreciate the implications of unprecedented species redistribution for life on Earth, including for human lives," states a study, " Divergence of Species Responses to Climate Change ," published May 17, 2017, in Science Advances. Imagine if you had to travel thousands of miles and arrive at a specific time each year, but you had no way of knowing the precise time you needed to get there. That's what it's like for many songbirds that migrate from Central and South America each spring to breeding grounds in the US and Canada. If they were to arrive too early, they wouldn't find food and could freeze to death. If they arrive late, the best nesting sites may be taken and there will be fewer opportunities to find a mate. For countless generations, these birds have been able to rely on ...
