Fiona Millar: a huge injection of cash is needed before school funding can be fair

Just-about-managing families are attending schools that are not managing at allPity the MPs of West Sussex. These pale male parliamentarians, including several knights of the shires and the schools minister, Nick Gibb, are sitting on solid Tory majorities. It’s not the sort of territory where uprisings are commonplace, but that seems to be what they are facing. Heads and governors in this quintessentially English rural area are revolting, taking their concerns about school funding directly to parents and Whitehall. Governors are threatening to down tools unless their voice is heard.On the surface this campaign, WorthLess, appears to be in response to the second stage of the government’s consultation on a national funding formula. Calls for an end to the historical inequalities in funding between different local authority areas have been going on for a decade or more. It finally translated into firm proposals on the watch of the former education secretary, Nicky Morgan. Continue reading...

How Beyoncé Channeled Her Inner Goddess At The Grammys

The artist, who took home awards for Best Music Video and Best Urban Contemporary Album, performed just two songs during the ceremony ― “Love Drought” and “Sandcastles,” from the album “Lemonade.” Throughout her time onstage, she used imagery that appeared to draw from myths about divine motherhood found in several religious traditions.  Twitter fans were quick to point out the religious references. Some suggested that she was embodying Oshun (also spelled Osun), a Yoruba deity associated with love, fertility, and female sensuality. Oshun is often depicted wearing yellow and surrounded by sweet, life-giving water. Folktales told about Oshun claim that she was involved in the creation of the world, and that all living things owe their existence to her. As a result of the slave trade, a reverence for Oshun and other deities whose origins lie in African spirituality, like Yemonja, was carried across the Atlantic. Yoruban female deities are still worshipped in countries like Brazil and Cuba.  Beyonce has channeled Oshun before, in the song “Hold Up” from “Lemonade.” Others suggested that Beyoncé was evoking the Virgin Mary during her Grammy performance. In the Christian tradition, Mary is the mother of Jesus Christ ― the holy woman who brought God into the world.  In religious art, Mary is often depicted with a halo surrounding her head, symbolizing the fact that she is no ordinary woman.  Look at this Queen. Beyonce:The Black Madonna. pic.twitter.com/VPqFa0Q8xg— The People's Oracle (@PeoplesOracle) February 13, 2017 Another ode to Christian art was reflected in the way the stage was set. For part of the performance, Beyoncé walked on a long table surrounded by chairs ― evoking Leonardo da Vinci’s “The Last Supper.” But this time, it was Queen Bey at the head of the table. Several other fiercely feminine religious myths made an appearance in the performance. At one point, a special effect made it seem as if Beyoncé had multiple arms. It could have been a reference to Hindu deities like the mother goddess Durga, or Kali, who is associated with death, sexuality, and motherly love. Later on during the show, Beyoncé lay on a bed of flowers, a possible reference to the Roman goddess of love, Venus. The performance came days after Beyoncé announced to the world that she was pregnant with twins. Her epic tribute to divine motherhood ended with a quote from the poet Warsan Shire, whose work featured heavily in “Lemonade.” “If we’re gonna heal, let it be glorious,” she said. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Teachers Scrap Lesson Plans To Tackle Trump's Executive Order

English teacher Tom Rademacher planned to have his middle school classes start reading a new one-act play Monday. Instead, on Sunday, he scrapped the idea. As he watched protests break out across the country over President Donald Trump’s executive order on immigration, he decided to take the opportunity to tackle more pertinent subjects.  Rademacher, who hails from Minneapolis, teaches mostly students of color. The past year has been tough for them. In July, a local police officer shot and killed Philando Castile during a traffic stop, highlighting already fraught tensions between police officers and minority communities. In recent weeks, amid the election of Trump, Rademacher has fielded worries from students about people getting deported, about an outbreak of war, about the national guard getting sent to Chicago and potentially disrupting the lives of family members. His students have continually expressed concerns over the value ― or seeming lack of value ― society places on their lives and experiences.  On Monday, these anxieties only felt heightened, said Rademacher, whose students also include several Muslims. “To summarize the general feeling, it was: This is the beginning,” he said.“No student was looking at this weekend thinking, ‘This is the worst thing that’s going to happen.’ It’s more like, this is the first step, and they’re really worried about what comes next.” In the weeks following Trump’s election, teachers reported seeing higher rates of trauma and fear from immigrant students and students of color, according to a Southern Poverty Law Center report. On Monday, just a few days after Trump’s immigration order ― which halts the U.S. refugee resettlement program and temporarily bars people from seven countries from entering the U.S. ― teachers had to find ways to help students face these fears head-on. Some educators, like Rademacher, refused to let the concerns of pupils go unnoticed, turning them into teachable moments. Students in Rademacher’s classes spent Monday looking at a poem called “Home,” by British Somali poet Warsan Shire. The poem, which includes the famous line “No one leaves home unless home is the mouth of a shark,” has become a rallying cry against the immigration order. Rademacher focused the discussion around the lived experiences of refugees, taking pains to emphasize points of shared humanity. The aim, says Rademacher, was not to have students debate current events or convince them to feel a certain way, but to give students a space to share their worries, while looking at multiple perspectives. “I think especially in the leadup to the election, kids weren’t exactly hopeful about the future, and weren’t necessarily seeing the world as a positive place or great place for them,” said Rademacher. “That’s only gotten stronger, they only carry that heavier now.”  At another Minnesota school, Mark Westpfahl’s middle school history classes have been thinking about these issues for weeks, even before Trump’s executive order. The kids are in the middle of a unit on immigration, which looks at European migration to America at the turn of the 19th century. For these students, Trump’s actions don’t just relate to abstract history in a textbook.  Many of Westpfahl’s students come from immigrant families, some of them Somali. Under Trump’s order, Somalis are barred from entering the United States for the next 90 days.  Kids spent some of Monday discussing the past weekend’s events. In the next few days, they will be drawing connections between Trump’s order and older, historical actions on immigration. Westpfahl hopes to help students look at other sides of the issue ― even those they may not intuitively agree with. Westpfahl said he plans to ask students questions like: What if kids from the classroom next door started using our space, desks and chalkboards? How would that make students feel? If students are able to see all perspectives, it will make them able to better advocate for whatever side they choose, Westpfahl hopes. But these classes have also paved the way for difficult, sometimes painful discussions. A number of students have told Westpfahl that they’re unsure of their immigration status, and they don’t know what is going to happen to their families. They say they’re scared. “Seeing my students have to go through it with that worry and concern and fear ― it pulls at you,” said Westpfahl. “The things we talk about often appear in just a textbook, but these are textbook examples from 50 years ago. What we are going to be learning and talking about years from now are the stories of these kids.” How we spent our morning. @dosomething @ACLU #PrideOverPrejudice #NoBanNoWall #RefugeesWelcome #edchatShowUp pic.twitter.com/Y0Jie1mlon— Whitney Scott-Jones (@whitscottjones) January 30, 2017 Whitney Scott-Jones, who teaches English as a second language in Texas, also scrapped the lesson she had planned for her sixth-grade students Monday amid Trump’s immigration order. Instead, she had her kids ― who come from a range of countries like Somalia, Kenya and Ethiopia ― make signs that emphasize pride in their heritage. She told them that they are welcome in America, that many citizens disagree with the president and that people know what great things they bring to the community.  Scott-Jones says she wants the world to know how “wonderful” her students are. “How strong and courageous, how kind and considerate, how they’re just here, just wanting a better life, wanting to learn to read, to write, to make friends, play sports, get a good education, like any other American kid,” she said.  ― ―  Rebecca Klein covers the challenges faced in school discipline, school segregation and the achievement gap in K-12 education.

Just gonna post poems today by poets from nations banned by the immigration block:— Kaveh Akbar (@KavehAkbar) January 30, 2017 “When you read a poem by a poet who is living in Syria, you are granted access to an experience that is absolutely nothing like your experience living in Duluth or Montpelier,” Akbar said in an interview with PBS News Hour. “So I think that engaging in that work is one of the most empathetic things we can do right now.” Despite the White House’s attempts to paint immigrants and refugees as terrorists and criminals, with a simple gesture Akbar made abundantly clear just who Trump’s executive order will keep off American soil: poets; artists; living, breathing, loving human beings.

To Steve Bannon, Concerning Hobbits

Sir -- Twice now you have publicly referred to your alt-right constituency as 'hobbits'. In December you told the Daily Mail that your following of 'hobbits' should continue to keep you and Trump honest after you take power. More recently, in your epic blowup at the New York Times, you referred to your candidate's rise to victory as a revolt of 'working-class hobbits.' I'm assuming that in your referencing of that fair and humble folk you are attempting to paint a picture of simple, rural people who like good-tilled earth, are slow to anger, but when called upon are a force to be reckoned with. Presumably you've actually read the Lord of the Rings -- though from my experience, those who share your political affiliations aren't overly fond of books, except, perhaps, when throwing them on bonfires, or waving them in front of frenzied television crowds as examples of intellectual elitism. But if you have read it, then you know where the real analogy lies. No, I'm not going to compare you to the Dark Lord Sauron. That would be insulting to that formidable Maiar, who -- though evil to the core -- was the holder of some actual power worth speaking of. Rather, may I direct your attention to chapter 18 of Return of the King -- The Scouring of the Shire. When Sam and Frodo return from their epic quest to Mordor -- which they are only able to accomplish through humility, love, and reliance upon one another -- they find that their beloved Shire has been taken over by xenophobic thugs. A huge wall has been put up to unnecessarily keep foreigners out, and childish shire-dwellers who have no experience or knowledge of the world have formed vigilante bands, guarding the realm against a trumped up 'enemy' who doesn't actually exist. The defining characteristics of this new, scoured, Shire -- it is an unfriendly place for foreigners, it is built upon lies told by a worm-tongued henchman, it is run by people with no experience, it is surrounded by a big and utterly unnecessary wall, and it is an environmental wasteland. As Tolkien said -- "trees had been wantonly felled, the old mill had been replaced by a great brick building straddling the stream, which it fouled with a steaming and stinking outflow." In Sam's words -- it was worse than Mordor. Sound familiar? Stinking outflow? Worse than Mordor? So if in labeling your constituency hobbits you really intend to say that they have been duped into following Grima Wormtongue into a dystopian thug state, then perhaps you have a point. If you're trying to paint your hobbits as the 'good guys...' Not so much, Mr. Bannon. Not so much. Such analogies would not have sat well with J.R.R. Tolkien, who loved most and despised few, and the few he despised were mostly Nazis. Perhaps you know, that in 1938, before the outbreak of the great war, the German publisher of the Hobbit requested that Tolkien provide evidence of his Aryan heritage, so that they could ascertain if he had any Jewish blood. Here is a part of his response -- "Thank you for your letter. I regret that I am not clear as to what you intend by arisch [Aryan]. I am not of Aryan extraction: that is Indo-Iranian; as far as I am aware none of my ancestors spoke Hindustani, Persian, Gypsy, or any related dialects. But if I am to understand that you are enquiring whether I am of Jewish origin, I can only reply that I regret that I appear to have no ancestors of that gifted people. My great-great-grandfather came to England in the eighteenth century from Germany: the main part of my descent is therefore purely English, and I am an English subject - which should be sufficient. I have been accustomed, nonetheless, to regard my German name with pride, and continued to do so throughout the period of the late regrettable war, in which I served in the English army. I cannot, however, forbear to comment that if impertinent and irrelevant inquiries of this sort are to become the rule in matters of literature, then the time is not far distant when a German name will no longer be a source of pride. Tolkien certainly would have made no bones about correcting your misplaced fantasy novel analogies, your misplaced emphasis on national heritage as indicator of criminal intent, and your history, which -- as is all too common among fascist movements-- imagines an illusory white homeland that needs to be 'made great again.' There's only one problem -- the great white America of which you speak doesn't exist and never did. And if history is any indicator, the pipe dream you're selling has an extremely rapid expiration date.

'I was weak, despairing, confused': did writing a novel make me ill?

It started with a bottomless tiredness, and soon novelist Sarah Perry was unable to function. Had she brought it all on herself?On Christmas Eve 2013, with hail falling on Norwich, I set out to jog three miles through the storm on the path beside the river. The spire of the cathedral was obscured by pearly cloud; snowdrops speckled the riverbank; it was pleasant to feel the little cut of ice on cheek. All this I recall with wonder, for that moment has crystallised in my memory as youth’s last day before, at the age of 34, old age struck me like a brick in a sock.I cannot say when I first began to realise I was ill, for it came on me surreptitiously, with each new symptom readily explained. I was tired, probably; I was anxious, that was it: cared too deeply about the fate of my debut novel, of the work in progress. Yet by the following Christmas I felt as though I were a badly stitched garment coming apart at the seams. I was no athlete, nor had I ever been, but I’d never been troubled by anything more serious than an asthma cough, and had always thought of myself as rather like a shire horse: healthy, stolid, large of hindquarter and small of foot; willing to walk any distance in any weather, given the promise of a nosebag. How could it be, then, that washing my hair exhausted my arms until I let them fall by my side? How could a brief walk weary me to tears? Why did I wake at midnight, at two, at four, at six; why did I topple against the arm of the sofa at nine in the evening, and ask, like a child, to be put to bed? Why did I ache from heel to hip, with that dreary pain, hardly worth a single Nurofen, that comes when one has been chilled to the marrow? By the time 2016 put its malevolent head around the door, it occurred to me that I’d been in pain every day for 18 months. Continue reading...

Макроэкономическая ликвидность и воспроизводство капитала.

Сегодня мы с вами посмотрим на макроэкономическую ликвидность с точки зрения воспроизводства капитала, обратившись к марксовым схемам и посмотрим, могут ли марксовые схемы объяснить текущие экономические явления.Для основы возмем три статьи.Первая статья зерохедж Nearly 75% Of Biotechs Have No Earnings  в переводе на вестифинанс http://www.vestifinance.ru/articles/5485375% биотехнологических компаний не имеют прибылиБезудержный рост американского рынка акций во многом был обусловлен ростом стоимости акций компаний сектора биотехнологий. Именно они, а также Apple, способствовали подъему индекса Nasdaq до уровня 5000 пунктов, но, если заглянуть за кулисы, все не так радужно.Ниже мы приведем график из 150 компаний, входящих в Nasdaq Biotech Index (NBI), с разбивкой по чистой прибыли. Несмотря на то что этот фондовый индикатор едва ли не каждый день устанавливает новые максимумы, многие из этих предприятий попросту убыточны.Есть, конечно, и прибыльные, но из 150 таких всего 41 компания, а суммарная прибыль за последний год составила чуть менее $31 млрд. Стоит отметить, что только 5 компаний имеют прибыль более $1 млрд: Gilead, Amgen, Shire, Biogen и Celgene.Таким образом, получается, что на эти компании приходится 83% прибыли, генерируемой всеми компаниями из NBI, а 109 представителей индекса являются убыточными.Подводя итог, мы имеем в индексе 41 прибыльную компанию, а 72,5% других теряют деньги на своем бизнесе. Кроме того, как мы уже отметили, 83% прибыли приходится на компании, доля которых в индексе составляет 12%.Теперь, если исключить из списка компании с капитализацией менее $1 млрд, картина в целом не изменится: из 87 биотехнологических компаний 68% несут убытки. Ну и еще раз о "большой пятерке": их прибыль составила 84% от прибыли всей отрасли.Что же по этому поводу думает рынок? Капитализация Nasdaq Biotech Index составляет $1,06 трлн, а прибыль за последние 12 месяцев - всего $21,1 млрд. Иными словами, данный биржевой индикатор торгуется с соотношением цена/прибыль (P/E) в районе 50, и опять же это при том, что львиная доля прибыли приходится всего на 5 компаний.Вторая статья фанейшнл таймс The Central Bank Money Machine At Work: Big Oil Goes On Borrowing SpreeКрупнейшие мировые энергетические компании продали рекордные суммы долга в этом году, воспользовавшись исторически низкими процентными ставками по займам,чтобы ликвидировать кассовый разрыв между доходами и расходами, после того, как цены на нефть снизились вдвое..Общий долг за первые 2 месяца 2015 года крупнейших американских нефтяных и газовых компаний вырос более чем на 60%, по сравнению с последними тремя месяцами прошлого года. Займы   ExxonMobil , Chevron , Total и BP составили половину- $ 31млрд от общей суммы всех компаний энергетического сектора на сумму $ 63млрд. Доминирование крупнейших компаний делает сложным привлечение займов для мелких игроков, затраты которых на займы становятся неподъемными,в связи с чем те вынуждены себя выставлять на продажу, как, например, это  Gulf Keystone.Третья статья моя , она как раз касалась возможности применения марксовых схем для работы . Роботы вокруг людей и люди как роботы Схема была выведена на основании понимания механизма воспроизводства капитала или его невозможности, теоретическое обоснование будет выглядеть несколько сложнее,чем описано в статье, но все же, эту схему легко можно применить к текущим событиям."Чтобы было понятно: вся стоимость компаний сейчас представляет собой фиктивную стоимость капитала (с), переменный капитал (зарплата-v) снижается, прибавочная стоимость (m) также фиктивна- за счет фиктивности стоимостей с каждой из сторон подразделений временами имеется равновесие; но при крахе финансового рынка равновесие нарушается и восстановление идет довольно хаотично и по принципу- у кого больше административных возможностей для восстановления фиктивности стоимостей.Т.о. у нас выходит следующая схема:фиктивная стоимость II с = убывание I v + фиктивная стоимость I m"Снова возвращаемся к компаниям Nasdaq . Вне всякого сомнения,что капитализация в $1трлн- это фиктивная стоимость основного капитала II подразделения. Фиктивная стоимость прибавочной стоимости I подразделения  основывается на его замещениии займом, ликвидировав тем самым кассовый разрыв между высокими расходами и низкими доходами.Убывание переменного капитала I подразделения здесь не приведено, но я писала об этом ранее, приведенные статьи - из текущих новостей.Иными словами, капитализация прибавочной стоимости носит фиктивный характер,что не дает выправить накапливающиеся дисбалансы в деградирующей системе и макроэкономическая ликвидность систематически будет иметь "кассовый разрыв", периодически его накапливая до полного исчезновения ликвидности, т.е невозможности капитализации . И как видим, марксовы схемы вполне применимы в работе и совсем не сложны.
