"I like Donald Trump because I think he likes me," he said.

Is there a more accurate reason? No. That's what his supporters like about him. He likes them, they like him, they're all good looking and smart. This goes for at least one of his biggest financial supporters as well.
Q: "Did he answer any of the questions on your list?"
A: "No."

Village idiots agree.
That's all it means.

People close to 4Chan and speaking under condition of anonymity have rated Herr Drumpf a full 4 chans.

Users of 4chan—where users have framed someone for a mass murder in the past month—have thrown their support behind Donald Trump, calling him ‘an amalgamation of what 4chan would say if 4chan was a singular person.’ No, really.

[...]

“I didn’t support him at first but the memes were too dank to ignore. So yes I support him now,” user HonkHonkSkeeter said. He wished to remain anonymous, as many did many others. (The conversations mostly took place through direct message on Reddit.) “I thought that his perspicacious usage of contemporary cultural memetics is both humorous and effective at garnering support.”___Village idiots agree.

Students unhappy with interacting with positions unfamiliar to them are not getting cocoa and smores.

When I was on the ICANN board I was attacked because I stated the issues with clarity and without euphemistic gauzes. The main attack vector was that I was too American and that I was offending those of other cultures that have adopted more indirect ways to express conflicting points of view.

I learned from that and did try to be accommodating. But accommodation is a two-way street: If I was willing to take a step towards being more euphemistic and indirect in order to less offend those of other cultures, I wanted those of other cultures to take a step to become less sensitive and less easily offended.

I do like the way that the Univ of Chicago wrote that civility is a positive value and that we should aspire to being civil to one another, but that intellectual honesty and clarity of thought and word should not be sacrificed as a consequence.___Students unhappy with interacting with positions unfamiliar to them are not getting cocoa and smores.

New paper: Cognitive mapping links human factors to corporate
strategies
by Village, Salustri, and Neumann

(Well, it's not that new, thanks to silly embargoes by publishers, but there you have it.)

Abstract: Human factors (HF) can improve business performance. Our objective is to harness individual tacit knowledge from senior directors about human factors as it relates to strategic goals and to make explicit their shared managerial thinking with an aim to identifying improvement opportunities using HF. Individual cognitive maps were drawn during one-hour interviews with seven senior directors of a large electronics firm. The maps were then merged on a common strategic goal of ‘improving quality’ into a group map containing 221 concepts and 900 loops.

Our objective is to harness individual tacit knowledge from senior directors about human factors as it relates to strategic goals and to make explicit their shared managerial thinking with an aim to identifying improvement opportunities using HF. Individual cognitive maps were drawn during one-hour interviews with seven senior directors of a large electronics firm. The maps were then merged on a common strategic goal of ‘improving quality’ into a group map containing 221 concepts and 900 loops. In a two hour workshop with the directors, reducing fatigue, improving systems design, and reducing repetitive activities were concepts that emerged as critical-to-quality. Workshop discussions identified untapped improvement opportunities. Directors viewed the maps as a dynamic indicator of their HF performance. Making the connection between HF and strategic goals explicit can help an organisation identify opportunities to improve human, and therefore business, performance.___

So he has been exposed to how science works and why we perform research on tropical diseases and disease vectors. Yet Scott has decided it is not as important as saving money and cutting corporate tax. Goodness knows how he arrives at these decisions.

+Russ Roberts Econ Talk podcast with +Chuck Klosterman regarding how what we think true today may be utterly wrong tomorrow. Near the end of http://goo.gl/Gjw0fb Roberts & Klosterman draw a parallel between the GOP convention & future of the NFL. The similarity being that the future is not necessarily dim if the minority you are left with is increasingly engaged. In this case, they are both likely to be engaged in viewing violence as a virtue IMHO.

The Roger Ailes fiasco seems emblematic of how men of a certain age, steeped in 1950s "masculinity" are increasingly marginalized if they fail to adapt. The obverse is the moaning we hear from the right about the fascism of political correctness. The fact this is happening as often to older male academics is utterly lost on Horowitz's acolytes.

Aside from the fact his analogy utterly sucked, do we get it now?

I think analogy is unnecessary. It can be plainly stated and it's not rocket science.

"You can't be as universally disliked as I am, and not do some soul-searching," said Beck at a news conference before his speech in Denver. "Well, unless you're Donald Trump."

Among Beck's revelations was that the Black Lives Matter movement had a point.

[...]

But since the police shootings in Dallas, where his programs are recorded, Beck had come to view "Black Lives Matter" differently.

"All of us are sitting around a table, and we're all friends," he said. "It's time for dessert, and everybody gets pie except for me and you. And you say, 'I didn't get any pie.' Everybody at the table looks at you and says 'I know. All pie matters.' You say, 'but I don't have any pie! What about my pie?'"

Beck's point was that white Americans simply did not understand what black people had been saying about police in America.___Aside from the fact his analogy utterly sucked, do we get it now?

There are now 3 blogs up and running (yes!!!), and I got all my folders and rules and tags cleaned up to get the semester off to a good start. The way it works is that I subscribe to each blog and its comments, and those go into folders. Then Inoreader runs rules on incoming posts into those folders, assigning tags based on keywords students use in the post titles (I can manually add tags when students forget and don't use the keywords). That then gives me a work management system: the different assignments go in different streams, I use a "mustread" tag for the incoming posts that I comment on, I star the items where I have left comments so I can see at a glance for any student's blog how often and how recently I have commented, and on and on. For any of you out there who manage a student blog network, I cannot say enough good things about +Inoreader ... it is AMAZING. It allows me to stay in touch with all my students and to feel confident that I am keeping up even when there is a huge number of posts (literally hundreds of posts and comments each week).

Foreign Policy magazine: "Throughout his unorthodox campaign, Trump has repeatedly echoed Kremlin talking points, from denigrating NATO to blaming President Barack Obama for the creation of the Islamic State."

What if they aren't in collusion. What if they are both at the same level? Isn't it possible that Putin and Trump are similar enough?
You haven't wanted to call Putin stupid, insane, or an idiot before this. Why not?
