U.S. Is Giving Up on Public Schools. That's a Mistake.

Erika Christakis, The AtlanticPublic schools have always occupied prime space in the excitable American imagination. For decades, if not centuries, politicians have made hay of their supposed failures and extortions. In 2004, Rod Paige, then George W. Bush’s secretary of education, called the country’s leading teachers union a “terrorist organization.” In his first education speech as president, in 2009, Barack Obama lamented the fact that “despite resources that are unmatched anywhere in the world, we’ve let our grades slip, our schools crumble, our teacher quality fall short, and...

Schumer's Deception, and a Timeline of Trump Frustration

Byron York, DC ExaminerRepublican Sen. Charles Grassley's accusation that Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer lied about President Trump and the Russia investigation -- that Schumer said the president was under investigation after he, Schumer, had been specifically told by the FBI that Trump was not -- is shedding new light on the events that led to the president's rising frustration over the Russia probe, the FBI, and Democrats who sought to make political hay out of Trump's troubles.

The Guardian view on policing and cuts: something has to give | Editorial

As home secretary Theresa May was right to challenge Britain’s police about costs and efficiency. As prime minister she must ensure police have the resources to protect the publicPromising to spend more money on policing has repeatedly proved politically popular and effective in modern Britain. Nearly 40 years ago, Margaret Thatcher’s promise to pay the police more helped her to win her first election victory. In the 1990s, John Major and Tony Blair conducted a political auction over which of them could promise voters more police. In the 2017 general election campaign, Jeremy Corbyn made political hay from Labour’s promise to recruit 10,000 new officers, forcing Conservatives on to the back foot about cuts in police budgets at a time of anti-terror security concerns.Whether extra spending on police is actually an effective use of public money is a different question, however, especially when resources are tight. As prime minister in the 1980s, Mrs Thatcher lavished money on policing, yet crime rose consistently throughout her period in office and policing controversies over issues such as complaints, violence, race and accountability soared. Under Mr Blair in the 2000s, crime declined at its steadiest rate since the second world war, but without any attempt to consider reducing police numbers as a result. In 2010, the new home secretary, Theresa May, grasped that nettle, overseeing an 18% cut in police funding and a reduction of around 20,000 officers between 2009 and 2016. Yet police warnings of a “Christmas for criminals” mostly failed to materialise and crime has continued to fall to the present day. Continue reading...

Can you speak any of the Russian language’s hybrid 'children'?

Many young people today know of the existence of popular hybrid languages, for instance, the African American Vernacular, thanks to popular culture. "Take Black people from Africa, who were brought to America. They gradually learned a language mixed with their native one. This is how a pidgin language is born – a language of the marketplace," explained Alexander Volkov, professor at Moscow State Lomonosov University. As a rule, the native speaker of a standard language finds such a mixture to sound funny. Russian also has its humorous versions, for example, hybrids with Chinese, Ukrainian, Belarusian and even Norwegian. Kyakhta: Russian plus Chinese How Siberia became part of Russia Kyakhta is a pidgin language based on Russian and Chinese that existed at the turn of the 19th-20th centuries in the Amur, Manchuria and Trans-Baikal regions bordering China. The name derives from the town of Kyakhta in Buryatia. Today, linguists classify Kyakhta as "possibly extinct" – it ceased to be widely used in the first half of the 20th century. But even in the 1990s one could meet elderly Chinese traders at markets near Ulan Bator who communicated in this language. In China, Kyakhta was taught for for the benefit of officials trading with Russia. Surzhyk: Russian + Ukrainian The name surzhyk originates from bread made from mixed-grain flour. The status of this language is difficult to define: it’s a blend of Russian and Ukrainian that is different from both pure Ukrainian and the colloquial Ukrainian Russian. Surzhyk cannot be described as pidgin either because harmonious contact between two closely-related languages cannot give rise to a pidgin language. Most of Surzhyk’s vocabulary comes from Russian, while most of its grammar and pronunciation comes from Ukrainian. Surzhyk appeared among the rural population, and its written form was recorded by the first author who wrote in colloquial Ukrainian, Ivan Kotliarevsky, in his classic work of Ukrainian literature, Natalka Poltavka (1819). Nowadays, Surzhyk is common in Ukraine, especially in areas adjoining Russia and Moldova. According to the Kiev International Institute of Sociology, as of 2003 between 11 and 18 percent of Ukraine’s population communicated in Surzhyk. Trasianka: Russian plus Belarusian Like Surzhyk, the name Trasianka reflects the very essence of this hybrid language - in this case, a mixture of Russian and Belarusian. Translated from Belarusian, the word trasianka literally means "low quality hay" – what you get when peasants mix straw with hay. Like Surzhyk, Trasianka cannot be described as a pidgin language. How serious is the row between Russia and Belarus? Nowadays, linguists classify it as a chaotic and spontaneous form of mixing languages. In the vocabulary and morphosyntax of Trasianka, Russian elements and features unequivocally predominate. Trasianka has its origins in the changes that took place in Soviet Belarus after World War II, (in some areas before the War). The industrialization of the Belarusian Soviet Socialist Republic (BSSR) led to a massive labor migration from villages to cities and towns. At the same time, ethnic Russians from other parts of the USSR migrated to the BSSR where they took senior positions in the Communist Party and at industrial enterprises. Former villagers, native speakers of the Belarusian language, were forced to adapt to the Russian-speaking environment, something in which they did not always fully succeed. According to 2009 data, 16.1 percent of the Belarusian population speaks Trasianka, and it is common among Belarusians of different ages and levels of education. Russenorsk: Russian plus Norwegian Russenorsk, which existed in the 18th-20th centuries, was a pidgin language. Today, it’s still spoken on the Spitsbergen (Svalbard) archipelago. It arose to help Russian and Norwegian traders communicate when they traded grain and fish on the north coast of Norway. Life in Svalbard: New frontier or the last resting place of the USSR? Russenorsk contained about 400 words, and has one interesting feature that demonstrates the equality of Russians and Norwegians as trading partners. In most hybrid languages one of the languages has a dominant role, but in the case of Russenorsk, the number of Russian and Norwegian words is about the same. Russenorsk took a long time to develop into the form that survives today. Examples of some words go back to the end of the 18th century. As trade grew, merchants started learning Russian and by the mid-19th century Russenorsk was regarded as "bad Russian" rather than a separate language. The language disappeared with the end of free movement between the two countries following the 1917 Revolution. Read more: 7 aphorisms that are essential to understanding Russian civilization

Демографическая катастрофа или демографическая революция. Выбирать нам

Опубликовано на исп. языке моё небольшое интервью, пишет Юрий Крупнов (krupnov) кажется, позиция заявлена более чем ясно:Интервью с председателем Движения развития, председателем Наблюдательного совета Института демографии, миграции и регионального развития Юрием КРУПНОВЫМ для испанской редакции вещания на испанском языке РИА НовостиОпубликовано 13 сентября 2012 года на сайте РИА Новости на испанском языке http://sp.rian.ru/neighbor_relations/20120913/154995536.html Исходный текст на русском языке:   Может ли резкий рост рождаемости, зафиксированный в первом полугодии 2012 года решить демографическую проблему в стране?Рост рождаемости в 2012 году - последняя хорошая новость перед начинающимся демографическим спадом и затем, через несколько лет – и катастрофой. Если последние четыре года 30 % повышения рождаемости были вызваны введением государственного «материнского капитала», то 70 % - лишь тем фактом, что в детородный возраст вступили те, кто родился на так называемом «перестроечном пике» рождаемости в 1986-1989 годах. Со следующего же года во взрослую жизнь вступает поколение 90-х годов, когда взрыв смертности и невиданное падение рождаемости заставили говорить о феномене «русского креста», т.е пересекающихся кривых резкого взлёта смертности и падения рождаемости.Более того, не менее половины из 30% рождений, вызванных «материнским капиталом», приходятся на стимулирование отложенной до этого рождений, т.е тех, кто планировал иметь второго ребёнка, скажем в 2013-2016 годах, благодаря «материнскому капиталу» смогли родить второго ребёнка сейчас, но, к сожалению, они не собираются увеличивать количество своих детей до третьего, и отсюда этот успех является зеркально отобранным ближайшим годом рождения. Поэтому проворные отчёты о выправлении демографической ситуации, об успехах демографической политики - исключительно конъюнктурные.Каким образом, на Ваш взгляд, может быть решена эта проблема? Нужно делать ставку на сверхинтенсивную семейную политику. Нужен поистине культ семьи в России – причём, культ большой многодетной (3-5 детей) семьи. Безжалостная статистика требует от руководства сделать выбор – либо страна будет вымирать и к концу столетия мы опустимся до 50 и менее млн. человек, что несовместимо с удержанием 1/7 мировой суши, либо мы должны уже к 2035 году добиться чтобы 70 % семей в России были трёх–четырёхдетными. Это императив русской демографии, и для этого необходима организация русской демографическая революция, которая включает следующие меры: во-первых, надо наращивать политику «материнского капитала» - но делать его уже не материнским, а семейным, чтобы он не выступал экономическим стимулом к разрушению семьи в ситуации серьёзных проблем со статусом мужского молодого населения России. К этому семейному капиталу нужно добавлять стимулирование рождения третьего-четвёртого ребёнка, добавлять земельные участки с инфраструктурным обеспечением, и практически бесплатное предоставление современного комфортного жилья. Во-вторых, необходимы решительное развитие малых городов и районов России, ставка на усадебно-ландшафтную, а не разрушительную мегаполисную урбанизацию, свойственную государствам «третьего мира».Третий момент – не побояться и на ближайшие два столетия поставить задачу образовать русский миллиард, поскольку именно такая примерно по размеру численность населения у мировых цивилизаций к середине столетия будут определять мировую политику и экономику. США к 21 столетию подойдут к 500 – 700 млн рубежу, Ибероамериканская цивилизация – к миллиарду, не говоря уже о Китае и Индии.Ваш прогноз (краткосрочный и долгосрочный) относительно дальнейшего развития демографической ситуации в России?Прогноз означает, что мы мысленно продолжаем в будущем ту же демографическую политику, которая есть сегодня. В этом случае, как я уже сказал, к концу столетия нас ожидает уполовинивание населения и исчезновение русских из истории. На ближайшие 15 лет нужно готовиться к колоссальному демографическому спаду. Достаточно указать, что количество молодых женщин с 20 до 30 лет в 2025 году будет в два (!) раза меньше, чем сегодня. Прогнозы ведущих мировых фабрик мысли сильно различаются. Так, семь лет назад ООН к середине столетия прогнозировал 96 млн. жителей РФ по сравнению с нынешними 142 млн., ЦРУ – и того меньше. В последние два года прогноз серьезно повышен, в частности - ООН даёт показатель 116 млн., однако и оптимистическими прогнозами абсолютно нельзя довольствоваться – это всё равно дорога на геополитическое и историческое кладбище.России нужны не прогнозы, а амбициозные проекты и программы демографического развития вокруг культа большой многодетной семьи, которые в совокупности и должны составить демографическую революцию в России. Текст перевода интервью на испанский язык:http://sp.rian.ru/neighbor_relations/20120913/154995536.htmlRusia, al borde de la catástrofe si no llega una revolución demográficahttp://sp.rian.ru/neighbor_relations/20120913/154995536.html14:55 13/09/2012 El auge de la natalidad registrado en Rusia en el primer semestre de 2012 no resolverá el problema demográfico del país, que corre el peligro de llegar a 50 millones de habitantes para finales de siglo si no empieza una revolución demográfica. A las preguntas de RIA Novosti responde Yuri Krupnov, el director del Instituto de Demografía, Migración y Desarrollo regional de Rusia.El auge de la natalidad registrado en Rusia en el primer semestre de 2012 no resolverá el problema demográfico del país, que corre el peligro de llegar a 50 millones de habitantes para finales de siglo si no empieza una revolución demográfica. A las preguntas de RIA Novosti responde Yuri Krupnov, el director del Instituto de Demografía, Migración y Desarrollo regional de Rusia.¿Puede solucionar el problema demográfico de Rusia el drástico aumento de la tasa de la natalidad en el país, registrado en el primer semestre de 2012?El aumento de la natalidad en 2012 en Rusia es la última buena noticia en vísperas del desplome demográfico y la posterior catástrofe. Si en los últimos cuatro años el 30% de los nacimientos se atribuyeron a la introducción del “capital maternal” (ayuda económica por maternidad), el 70% se debió a la generación nacida en plena perestroika, es decir entre los años 1986 y 1989.Mientras, el próximo año alcanzarán la edad adulta los que nacieron en los 90, la década que registró un elevado índice de la mortalidad y drástica disminución de la natalidad que hicieron hablar del fenómeno de la “cruz rusa” cuando se cruzaron las curvas de la alta mortalidad y la baja natalidad.Además, al menos la mitad de ese 30% de nacimientos impulsados por el “capital maternal”, son nacimientos planificados, es decir los que querían tener a su segundo hijo para los años 2013-2016, gracias las ayudas a la maternidad optaron por tenerlo ahora, pero, desgraciadamente, ya no piensan aumentar la familia y tener al tercero.¿Entonces cómo, a su juicio, hay que salir de esta encrucijada?Hay que apostar por una política familiar muy intensiva. Hay que crear un culto de la familia en Rusia, un culto de la familia numerosa, donde haya de tres a cinco vástagos.Las despiadadas estadísticas obligan a las autoridades a elegir entre la desaparición de la población con 50 millones y menos de habitantes para finales del siglo, algo incompatible con la posesión de la 1/7 parte de la Tierra, o para el 2035 hay que conseguir que todas las familias rusas tengan de tres a cuatro hijos.Se trata de un imperativo de la demografía rusa y para ello hay que organizar una revolución demográfica, que incluiría las siguientes medidas: primero, aumentar el “capital maternal”, convirtiéndolo en una ayuda a la familia para que no contribuya al desmoronamiento del núcleo familiar, vistos los serios problemas existentes en Rusia con el estatus de la joven población masculina. Junto con esta ayuda, hay que estimular el nacimiento del tercer y el cuarto hijo en las familias, entregarles parcelas bien comunicadas, y viviendas modernas y confortables que les saldrán prácticamente gratis.Segundo, hay que tomar medidas drásticas para el desarrollo de pequeñas urbes y regiones de Rusia, apostar por la urbanización de pueblos, construcción de viviendas de pocas plantas en territorios extraurbanos y no megalópolis, que es destructivo y muy propio de Estados del llamado “tercer mundo”.Tercero, no hay que tener miedo de fijar objetivos como llegar a un 1.000 millón de habitantes en los próximos dos centenarios, porque serán precisamente las civilizaciones con este número de habitantes las que para mediados del siglo determinen el rumbo de las políticas y económicas del mundo. En el siglo XXI, Estados Unidos llegará a 500-700 millones de habitantes, mientras la civilización iberoamericana, a 1.000 millón, por no hablar de China y la India.¿Su pronóstico a corto y largo plazo acera del desarrollo de la situación demográfica en Rusia?El pronóstico significa que mentalmente proyectamos para el futuro la política demográfica que tenemos hoy día. En ese caso, como ya lo mencioné, para finales del siglo nos espera una reducción a la mitad de la población actual y la desaparición de los rusos de la historia. Hay que estar preparados para un desplome demográfico durante los próximos 15 años. Para comprenderlo, solo hay que saber que el número de las mujeres entre los 20 y los 30 años de edad en 2025 será dos veces menor que ahora.Por otra parte, los pronósticos de las “fábricas de cerebros” varían mucho. Así, hace siete años la ONU decía que para mediados del siglo Rusia contaría con 96 millones de habitantes frente a 142 millones que el país tiene ahora. Según la CIA, la reducción de la población rusa será aún mayor.Los últimos dos años, la ONU emite pronósticos positivos como 116 millones (para 2050 en Rusia), pero no cabe conformarse con estos datos porque igual son un camino a la muerte histórica y geopolítica.Lo que necesita Rusia, no son predicciones, sino proyectos ambiciosos y programas de desarrollo demográfico basados en el culto de la familia numerosa, que harán de detonante para una revolución demográfica.

The winger, who has earned three caps for the Republic of Ireland, joins Brendan Rodgers’ side on a three-year contract, with Ryan Christie moving the other way on a season-long loan.“I’m delighted,” Hayes told Celtic’s official website. “It’s been in the pipeline for a little while now but I’m pleased to finally get here. Celtic have done well over the last few seasons and with the manager coming in last year he raised the level again. It was hard last year seeing all the celebrations and all the stuff on social media, and you want that for yourself.

Cerys Matthews: ‘I love today’s attitude towards gender neutrality’

The musician and broadcaster, 48, on her nursing days, what motherhood taught her, and why she doesn’t miss the strangeness of fameMy childhood involved a lot of hay, rain and periwinkles. I remember being in the back seat of my parents’ car – I was maybe three – when a 15st sow leapt out of a tractor in front of us and the farmer went chasing it down the road. We started singing a Welsh song about a pig. It’s my first memory.My grandmother was a keen mezzo soprano, but she lived in a time where, if you were a woman, you got married at 18 and that was it. As soon as I was given a recorder at school that was it for me. I was mesmerised by what you can do with sound. I collected recorders for a while – really nerdy. Continue reading...

Rep. Steve King Says Obama Is Partly To Blame For Alexandria Shooting

Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) is pointing a finger at former President Barack Obama for the attack on Republican lawmakers at a baseball field in Alexandria, Virginia, on Wednesday. “I do want to put some of this at the feet of Barack Obama,” the congressman said in an interview with Simon Conway on WHO Iowa radio. “He contributed mightily to dividing us. He focused on our differences rather than our things that unify us. And this is some of the fruits of that labor.” Earlier Wednesday, King stopped by the crime scene to pray and told The Washington Post: “America has been divided. And the center of America is disappearing, and the violence is appearing in the streets, and it’s coming from the left.” He also echoed this sentiment on Twitter. The center of America is disappearing, and the violence is incited by the leading cultural voices of the Left. https://t.co/A4s2HjpQxG— Steve King (@SteveKingIA) June 14, 2017 After the shooting, Obama called Sen. Jeff Flake (R- Ariz.), whom Obama maintained good relations with during his presidency, to send “best wishes and prayers to those injured,” Flake told the Los Angeles Times. Although King does have a point about the nation being divided, he is clearly unaware that his own hateful rhetoric — especially toward people who are not white, Christian or U.S.-born — contributes to the divide. In 2016, King said on “All In With Chris Hayes” on MSNBC that people who are white have contributed to civilization more than any other “subgroup.” In March, he suggested that Muslim children were preventing “our civilization” from being restored. And in April, when a King staffer failed to show up for a meeting with a Latina constituent who called him out for the runaround, he responded with a tweet that said, “Do you always lie in English?” So, basically, take his comments with grain — or an ocean’s worth — of salt. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

The charges send a clear message that the United States “does not tolerate individuals who use intimidation and violence to stifle freedom of speech and legitimate political expression,” U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said in a statement. Once the legal case is concluded, the department “will determine if any additional steps will need to be taken,” Tillerson said in the statement read by a spokeswoman to reporters. Erdogan said he would fight back politically against the arrest warrants, broadcaster CNN Turk quoted him as saying on Thursday. The daytime brawl outside the Turkish ambassador’s residence in the city on May 16 left nine protesters injured and strained U.S.-Turkish relations. A video posted online showed men in dark suits chasing protesters and punching and kicking them as Washington police struggled to intervene. “I condemn this attack,” Mayor Muriel Bowser told reporters at a news conference announcing the charges. “It was an affront to our values.” Arrest warrants for the members of Erdogan’s security detail have been issued, Metropolitan Police Department Chief Peter Newsham said. “If they attempt to enter the United States, they will be arrested,” he said. Newsham said there was no probable cause to arrest Erdogan, who watched the confrontation unfold from a nearby car. A total of 18 people have been charged in the incident. They include two Canadians and four Americans, according to prosecutors. Two men were arrested on Wednesday. Sinan Narin of Virginia faces a charge of felony aggravated assault and misdemeanor assault, and Eyup Yildirim of New Jersey faces two charges of felony assault and a misdemeanor assault charge. Some additional suspects still have not been identified, the police chief said.
