As you read this, Missouri legislators are in the process of figuring out what legislation they plan to submit to help improve education throughout the state next year. At the same time, members of the Missouri Board of Education are in the process of finalizing the next version of the Missouri School Improvement Plan (MISP 6) with a new focus on producing "success ready" students - students who are ready to succeed in college, the workforce and life.
In Lawtone-Bowles v. City of New York, the Southern District of New York granted in part, and denied in part, a Rule 12(b) motion to dismiss overtime claims advanced under the FLSA and New York Labor Law (“NYLL”). See No. 16-CV-4240 (AJN) (Sept. 22, 2017). The plaintiffs worked for the Department of Homeless Services as Motor Vehicle Operators responsible for transporting homeless persons to temporary housing placements, train stations, and airports.
President Donald Trump's war with CNN went off the rails Tuesday morning after he retweeted an image of a Trump train running over a CNN reporter, then quickly deleted it after the meme sparked criticism as inappropriate just days after the Charlottesville violence. Trump was in the middle of a morning tweetstorm when he sent the image, posted by a supporter who added "Nothing can stop the TrumpTrain! !," to his nearly 36 million followers.
@JillDLawrence I also think the much bigger problem we have isn't when I ask who's read some of the constitution (every hand goes up). It's when I ask who reads a newspaper or solid reporting journalism and nobody in a room of 110 students moves a muscle.
@JillDLawrence Like, I could be totally wrong. But I think it gets covered (and we can always use more).
I also don't think locating colleges and high schools as source of shortfalls in civic accountability is really a way to account for our current predicament.
@JillDLawrence FWIW I just doubt that it's not already in h.s. content. (And I'm totally one of those people who makes the Declaration & Const. a big part of US history survey and would be primed to believe there's a big gap in h.s. But between CC and state standards I can't imagine a gap)
People of the Earth:
American colleges teach the Federalist papers and Constitution in history and political science courses. All the time.
You don't need a national curriculum. You just need to stop crapping all over the people doing the teaching. https://t.co/GYlPFt0Onk
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
