[OP-ED]: CNN used to cover scandals. Now it’s immersed in them

Cuando el mago de los programas-realidad, Mark Burnett, ofreció un programa en que Trump abusaba de los concursantes mientras buscaba un “Aprendiz”, Zucker literalmente saltó y cerró la puerta para que Burnett no pudiera salir antes de firmar el trato. Univision

Conservatives insist that CNN is DOA.

That’s nonsense. Ratings are high and profits are up. All this since the man who made a fortune by building up Donald Trump as a television star -- Jeff Zucker, the head of CNN who used to run NBC -- seems to have decided that there is more money to be made from tearing down Trump now that he is president.

Even at the pivotal moment Castile very straightforwardly tells Yanez, “Sir, I do have to tell you, I have a firearm on me.” Yanez calmly says, “Don’t reach for it, then. Don’t pull it out.”  CNN.com Dashcam video

 My brother-in-law, a volunteer constable in a small Arkansas town, once said that the answer to the tensions and violence between motorists of color and the police was for law enforcement to treat those they are sworn to protect with respect and politeness.

[OP-ED]: Should the Fed run the economy ‘hot’?

 03/14/2017 - 17:44
The recovery, though encouraging, is certainly no economic panacea. Mounting inequality remains a big issue. From 2000 to 2016, the best-paid 5 percent of men achieved a 30 percent wage increase, according to Bureau of Labor Statistics data analyzed by Gould. For women, the comparable gain was 24 percent.

Toward the end of 1942, Winston Churchill, in announcing a rare victory over the German army, uttered one of his more memorable phrases: “This is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.” The same might be said today of the American economic recovery. Progress, though real, is incomplete.

[OP-ED]: The real Dodd-Frank scandal

Like many others, Geithner -- a critical player in containing the breakdown -- doubts the United States faces “a major financial crisis anytime soon.” To justify this, he offers both statistics and common sense. Foto: today.com
 
 

Comes now Timothy Geithner, treasury secretary from 2009 to 2013, to tell you that much of what you “know” about Dodd-Frank -- Congress’ response to the 2008-09 financial crisis -- is wrong. It’s a timely review because the Trump administration is promising to overhaul the law. The title of Geithner’s essay, carried in the current issue of Foreign Affairs, is simple: “Are We Safe Yet?” The answer is not so simple.

[OP-ED]: Don’t tell your children that you’re not good at math

 02/09/2017 - 08:07
We carry emotional baggage about our own schooling, relationships with our parents and their expectations. This is layered over the hopes and dreams we have for our own kids, making it challenging to always be positive and constructive.
 
 

There is an emerging education trend I’ve noticed that will hopefully sweep the nation: Asking the adults in children’s lives to not bad-mouth themselves about math.

The first time I noticed it was several years ago at an orientation for parents at my younger son’s new middle school. The principal was trying to explain that the math standards on the statewide achievement test were going up and that it might be noticeable in work that was coming home at night.

[OP-ED]: No digas a tus hijos que la matemática nunca fue tu fuerte

 02/08/2017 - 11:55
Cargamos el bagaje emocional de nuestra propia experiencia en la escuela, las relaciones con nuestros padres y sus expectativas. Eso se junta a las esperanzas y sueños que tenemos para nuestros hijos, lo que dificulta ser siempre positivo y constructivo.

Hay una tendencia emergente en educación que he observado y espero que se expanda en toda la nación: Pedir a los adultos presentes en las vidas de los niños que no se identifiquen como malos en matemática.

La primera vez que lo noté fue hace varios años, en una orientación para padres en la escuela media de mi hijo menor. El director intentaba explicar que los resultados en matemática estaban subiendo en los exámenes de todo el estado y que podría notarse en el trabajo que llevaban los niños a la casa por la tarde.
