Joe Walsh Is The Latest To Admit Being Punked By Sacha Baron Cohen 15.7.2018 Crooks Liars
Former Congressman Joe Walsh is the latest to come forward to discuss being duped by Sacha Baron Cohen for Cohen's new show premiering Sunday night on Showtime, "Who Is America?" I'll give Walsh props for having a good sense of humor about himself getting punked, and being okay with people having a laugh at his own expense. He explains the set-up on Michael Smerconish's CNN show - that because he's a strong supporter of Israel, Baron's crew convinced him he was getting an award from an Israeli TV station. He read some nutty things off a teleprompter, one of which involved fake Israeli news story about a a terrorist who had broken into a pre-school classroom. The story went that one of the of the pre-schoolers got the terrorists weapon away from him and held him at bay, saving his class. Then, the "Israeli" reporter asked Walsh if that was evidence that Americans should train and arm our own which Walsh admitted to thinking was weird, but amazingly did not reply in the negative. ...

Teachers Are Finally Winning Raises, But Many of Their Co-Workers Aren’t 8.5.2018 American Prospect
AP Photo/Ross D. Franklin Thousands march to the Arizona State Capitol for higher teacher pay and school funding on the first day of a state-wide teacher strike in Phoenix. Teachers are on the march across America. This year has seen a stunning eruption of invigorated teacher movements in states that rarely make this kind of political news—places like West Virginia, Oklahoma, and Arizona. Though these mobilized teachers have been careful to frame their demands for higher pay in the context of increased spending for students and schools, there is no doubt that raising their own salaries has been a key priority. Local and national media have worked hard to lift the voices of teachers taking to the streets. We’ve read about educators with virtually  no savings or chance of affording a vacation . We’ve met teachers forced to moonlight as  cashiers and Uber drivers . We’ve learned about educators’ stagnant or falling wages, and their  spiking health-care premiums. The stories have been infuriating.   That’s ...

Native Language Schools Are Taking Back Education 20.4.2018 Truthout - All Articles
The United States Mint and leaders of the Wampanoag Tribe introduced the 2011 Native American $1 coin during a ceremony at Plimoth Plantation on March 25, 2011. (Photo: Jonathan Wiggs / The Boston Globe via Getty Images) For more than 150 years, the Wôpanâak language was silent. With no fluent speakers alive, the language of the Mashpee Wampanoag people existed only in historical documents. It was by all measures extinct. But a recently established language school on the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe's reservation in Massachusetts is working to bring back the language. The threat of extinction that faces the Wôpanâak language is not uncommon for indigenous languages in the United States. Calculated federal policy, not happenstance, led to the destruction of Native American languages such as Wôpanâak. But today, Native language schools are working to change that by revitalizing languages that have been threatened with extinction. In the 19th century, federal policy shifted from a policy of extermination and ...
