The Danger of True Believers – jeffrey m hartman

The Danger of True Believers – jeffrey m hartman

A breed of exceptional professionals stands out in schools. They announce their presence. Those around them witness them working for a greater good with a zeal that can be inspiring or troubling, depending on perspective. Educators of this breed can’t be convinced that they’re doing anything but the most important work anyone could be doing. They’re also convinced they’re the only ones doing this work right. These educators are True Believers.

Who are True Believers? These are teachers and administrators who genuinely buy generic educational rhetoric. They live by motivational posters and inspirational quotes. They believe wholeheartedly that schools are the most important change agent in any young person’s life. They believe every student can perform at grade level and can do this well. They refuse to believe any student can’t do this. Their conviction defines them.

True Believers readily subscribe to the latest in educational panaceas. They insist that macro-level policies will improve outcomes for all students, if followed with fidelity. They find a policy or a program or a methodology and dive into it, convinced this will be the answer to some issue of underperformance. They love throwing technology at any deficit while maintaining how the “old-fashioned” way of doing anything retains its merit. All along, they know they know better than anyone else does.

Often, True Believers find their work in schools to be more than a job. They invest the whole of their being into what they do. They never really stop working, filling their evenings and weekends with school business. This is admirable in many respects, except that True Believers tend to not let anyone around them forget how dedicated they are. The True Believer frequently comes off as condescending and even self-righteous. They have a mission. Anyone who isn’t on board is in the way.
Teachers might start as True Believers. Those fresh recruits with glowing eyes hit the field ready to serve students and to be that change agent. The realities of the field smash many of these new teachers back into the surf like a salty, frigid wave. Others make it past the breakers and end up thriving in the chop. The survivors remain for their reasons, chiefly their belief in a mission. Importantly, many stick around long enough to become administrators.

Actually, a disproportionate number of administrators are True Believers. The True Believer tends to be ambitious, so aspiring to administration makes sense. Administration can appear to be the most efficient avenue for implementing change. A True Believer isn’t likely to see administration at the building level as being akin to middle management. Instead, a True Believer will see it as a genuine leadership opportunity. When thwarted by the practical frustrations of managing schools, True Believers sometimes make their way to district level administrative positions.

The trouble with True Believers really begins when they wield power. Prior to that, they’re merely insufferable. When they have the opportunity to take the rhetoric to which they subscribe and subject everyone else to it, they can unwittingly do some damage. They become inflexible and insistent. They adopt a “no excuses” model and attach this to everything. They see success as the end goal of education and they define success by narrow, quantifiable measures. The worst is that they see their brand of “no excuses” or “zero tolerance” or whatever as the recipe for fixing all issues. They expect to fix these issues within the span of a school year, even though no one else has figured out how to fix them in 60 or 70 years. Plus, they’re fully prepared to blame teachers when everything falls apart. Their version of leadership ends up being divisive and leads to low morale.

The lofty expectations of True Believers undermine their goals. They want all students to achieve at high levels. However, they use the least helpful means of targeting students who struggle to do this. The students they attack most often are students with IEPs. Like it or not, these tend to be the lowest performing and worst behaved students. True Believers have a nasty panache for suspending these students and pressing for their failure. Administrators sometimes fear taking any action against students with IEPs, but True Believers frequently show contempt and disregard for the protections these students receive. They want to extend “no excuses” policies in the face of federal law, thinking of themselves as truth-seekers in the process. In doing so, they reveal how silly the concept of “no excuses” really is.

No one can talk with True Believers about the possibility of anything being beyond the control of a school. Suggesting something is outside the scope of what a school can handle is seen as an attack on their faith. Because of this, they end up supporting legislative mandates that heap unrealistic responsibilities on school staff. This makes True Believers unwitting enemies of other school employees. They also set themselves up for bitterness. When their schools continue to underperform, they become incensed, ready to blame the faithless around them for the failures of students. Worse than this is when they misinterpret anomalies in data as evidence of their coveted policies finally working. It reinforces their beliefs even when the slightest examination would prove their policies didn’t in fact affect the results. Again, they can’t be convinced otherwise.

True Believers are more than vain and annoying. They’re indeed dangerous. They’re least harmful in the classroom, but even at this level they can be exhausting as colleagues. As building administrators, they force their unrealistic visions and end up marginalizing the students who most need their support. When they get the opportunity to be policy makers, their insistence and commitment to canned rhetoric lead to their investment in ideas that undermine what teachers are trying to do. Even if their policies have little effect, they still can inflict their will as ratings officers. Think about working under someone who will never believe he or she could be wrong about anything. Dealing with the True Believer in power can end up being the most tiring part of working in a school.

Slater, who is the half-Dominican, half-black grandson of a civil rights activist, said, "I came to this event in peace, I came to this event to stand beside my fellow Americans to disavow bigotry and instead I became the victim of bigotry, an intellectual bigotry. I was not attacked for my words, nor my actions. I was attacked for being a conservative."

Vigil organizers apologized, wrote Slater, but they also made "an excuse for the attackers and claimed that I should not be wearing apparel from an organization that many ‘interpret to be radical.'"

Slater brought his camera along to grab footage for his public access show "Liberty Now," whose next episode was to discuss the "evils of extremist groups," including radical Islam, Antifa, and the alt-right.

Google is already facing two cases with the N.L.R.B., one of which was filed in 2015, and another from 2016. Both are still open — and Damore’s will add a third.
Both existing cases allege that Google engages in coercion, including threats and surveillance, against its employees. The first complaint alleges an improper layoff, and both complaints allege improper retaliation.

Battery that will power your phone for 'twice as long' available next year | ZDNet

Battery that will power your phone for 'twice as long' available next year | ZDNet

MIT spinout SolidEnergy Systems plans to release the first of its super-long life, lithium-ion batteries in November for drones, followed by phones next year.

By Liam Tung | August 17, 2016 -- 11:57 GMT (04:57 PDT) | Topic: Mobility


Lithium-Ion Pioneer Introduces New Battery That’s Three Times Better | Fortune.com


Lithium-Ion Pioneer Introduces New Battery That’s Three Times Better | Fortune.com

Z. Morris
Mar 05, 2017



94 year-old John Goodenough, one of the co-inventors of the lithium-ion battery that now powers everything from phones to Teslas, has developed a new solid-state battery formula that promises to hold three times more energy than li-on. Goodenough and his team also say the new battery, which replaces a liquid electrolyte with glass, would charge quickly, never explode, and perform well at low temperatures that cripple today’s batteries.

The battery is still in the early stages of development, with a recent paper describing it published in the journal Energy & Environmental Science. That stage of battery research would normally merit caution, since most ‘revolutionary’ new battery ideas in recent years have turned out to be impractical to produce or unfit for the real world.


Get Data Sheet, Fortune’s technology newsletter.

But Goodenough, even at 94, demands attention. In 1980, he pioneered the cobalt-oxide cathode that forms the heart of lithium-ion batteries. The li-on became the backbone of the mobile electronics revolution, with some calling its impact as big as the transistor's.

But the li-on is clearly reaching the limits of its potential. The biggest proof may be in the spate of explosions now plaguing smartphone makers from Samsung to Apple, in part thanks to li-ons’ tendency to grow dendrites, metal strands that can cause short circuits. Goodenough's team says that using glass instead of liquid as an electrolyte—the membrane electrons traverse during charging and discharge— eliminates that possibility.

The other major benefit of Goodenough’s new idea is that it replaces lithium with sodium as a key material. While lithium isn’t particularly rare, it’s still harder to come by than sodium, which can be extracted from seawater. So the new battery could be cheaper to make than today’s li-on’s.
Even if Goodenough’s idea turns out to be both practical and scalable, it will be a long time before it actually goes into production. For historical reference, li-on batteries weren’t commercialized for more than a decade after Goodenough helped invent them.

The Sinjar massacre, which began in 2014, took place as the Islamic State cemented its foothold in northern Iraq, killing thousands of Yazidi men and women while holding girls captive and forcing them into sex slavery. The United Nations has recognized the Islamic State’s treatment of Yazidis as a genocide. Remaining Yazidis have been exiled from their ancestral lands in northern Iraq, as ISIS largely destroyed Sinjar’s infrastructure.
Yazidis adhere to their own ancient religion, which the Islamic State considers devil worship. Some identify as Kurds, though this remains a point of contention within the community.

Net Neutrality: Hobson's Choice | Light Reading

Net Neutrality: Hobson's Choice | Light Reading



From his presentation, "The Inescapable Inevitability of Convergence (Unless You 'Help')" (PDF or PPT):
"Virtually all higher education-related network or IT-related organizations (such as Educause, Internet2, ACE, AAU, NASULGC, ALA, etc.) support network neutrality rather than the carrier-favored network non-regulation... But we need to 'thread the needle' carefully. Remember that higher ed runs its own uncongested/exclusive network [Internet 2/NLR], and higher ed also routinely relies on packet shaping to control recreational traffic on its own networks."
In email, Joe explains: 


"My talk attempted to deal with two fundamental issues.
  • A technical issue: At root, the network neutrality/anti-regulation debate represents an attempt to introduce something that's beyond best effort packet delivery (e.g., premium QOS); if we build fast, overprovisioned, architecturally clean best-effort packet networks, QOS should satisfy no need and deliver no discernable benefit. Thus, if we have fast, overprovisioned, architecturally clean best-effort packet networks, the whole network neutrality/anti-regulation debate becomes effectively moot.
  • A policy issue: A Libertarian facing the network neutrality/anti-regulation debate has a tough (fundamentally irreconcilable?) choice:

    • On the one hand, she might want to insure that all ideas are given a chance to be freely expressed on a level playing field (which would imply a preference for network neutrality).
    • On the other hand, she'd likely also want to avoid government intervention and regulation of business affairs, preferring to leave that to the owners of each business (which would imply a preference for Internet non-regulation).


This debate sets up one heck of a Hobson's choice, eh?"

In response, Latin American countries declared that they will not recognise the vote. Even the European Union, itself no stranger to warped democratic procedure, has questioned the result’s legitimacy.
