How Putin or Xi Could Blow It All Up for Biden...
18 hours ago
GettyJoe Biden is on a roll. His approval rating is higher than his predecessor’s ever was. Almost three-quarters of Americans think he’s doing a good job handling the COVID pandemic. Sixty percent approve of his handling of the economy.So now is the time for him to start looking at what could go wrong, and turning his attention past our borders. It’s no coincidence that the one area where Biden’s ratings lag is at our southern border, where his efforts to fix the problems his predecessor exacerbated have hit problem after problem, all of them magnified by the knowledge of desperate immigrants that Donald Trump is gone.But that’s not the only place where the world is going to come knocking and, as Biden’s predecessors know, the results are often problematic. Barack Obama was elected to get us out of George W. Bush’s wars and in his first year he discovered how tough that would be and ended up actually increasing our troop levels in Afghanistan (over the objections of his vice president). George Bush was doing fine until Sept. 11, 2001. Bill Clinton’s first foreign crisis also took place in his first year in office with the Battle of Mogadishu and the notorious Black Hawk Down incident. George H.W. Bush’s first year in office saw both the Tiananmen Square uprising and massacre and a wave of revolutions in the satellite states of the crumbling Soviet Union that transformed the geopolitical landscape.Read more at The Daily Beast.......

“These children are called at-risk children. Many of these children end up in what are called Alternative schools. Alternative schools are primarily used as a substitute for traditional schools when a student is not succeeding in the traditional schooling environment. Many times, alternative school as used as a last resort for children who have misbehaved either in school or in conflict with the law” (ALTERNATIVE SCHOOLING: THE NEED TO IMPROVE ALTERNATIVE SCHOOLS TO ACCOMMODATE THE POPULATION THEY SERVE, Kayla Colson). My research concluded that there is a plethora of both benefits and challenges of teaching at and attending an alternative school. The purpose of this research synthesis is to explore the underling difficulties and advantages of alternative schooling. Teaching models are continuously evolving, aligning with what new generations of students demand from their education. Beyond the knowledge they acquire are the skills, tools, experiences, and emotional intelligence that have assumed great importance in preparing them for their adult lives. These alternative methods provoke us to question whether the methods that continue to be used in schools meet the educational needs that this new era brings or whether it could be time for change or adaptation. This research show that there is a plethora of challenges (e.g., new curriculum, behavioral reconstruction, and the changing learning environment) that coincide with alternative education. Including the understanding of the new curriculum, behavioral reconstruction, and the changing of the learning environment. This study allows other to see through the lens of teaching and attending alternative school. This is seen through the study and analyzation of the conducting of alternative schooling.......
Robust automatic identification of lattice defects for in-situ TEM experiments...

Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) uses an electron beam to transmit through a specimen and form an image. Modern TEM can easily achieve atomic-resolution, making it a powerful instrument to study the crystal structure and defects, which is closely related to the materials’ properties. Moreover, the successful development of in-situ capabilities, by providing external stimuli (heating, biasing, etc) to the TEM sample, opens the opportunity for real-time observation of the formation and movement of defects under different conditions. These in-situ experiments have provided many new insights into conventional theories. Meanwhile, the massive amount of data generated by the in-situ TEM experiments, usually thousands of images, is always a challenge for analysis. Therefore, an automatic method, constructed on the fundamental knowledge of image processing and materials science, is crucial to identify and track the defects in these in-situ TEM experiments. In partnership with the Department of Energy’s Ames Laboratory, we will investigate the materials’ behavior away from equilibrium by extracting structural data from in-situ TEM images. Based on our previous work on image analysis using Voronoi tesselleation, this project will develop automation filters, based on convolution and correlation, to identify the structural features from images with short exposure time. The results will provide a stable and robust way to identify lattice defects from high-noise images.......
Uncovering the Genetic Mechanisms Behind Host-Range Phenotypes in Related Rhodobacter capsulatus Bacteriophages...

Uncovering the Genetic Mechanisms Behind Host-Range Phenotypes in Related Rhodobacter capsulatus Bacteriophages Jackson Rapala and Dr. Richard Alvey*, Illinois Wesleyan University, Biology Department Bacteriophages, viruses that infect bacteria, are one of the most abundant and diverse biological constructs on Earth. Despite this high degree of diversity, many phages share a large degree of genetic similarity, and can be grouped into clusters. In particular, two C cluster phages discovered at Illinois Wesleyan, Oceanus and Dormio, can infect the host Rhodobacter capsulatus YW1. At the DNA level, these phages are nearly identical with an average nucleotide identity of 98.29%; however, Dormio can infect the host strain B10, while Oceanus cannot. In order to understand the mechanism behind this difference, a series of chimeric Oceanus phages have been developed by transferring genes from Dormio into reproducing Oceanus particles. In particular, these genes have included those present in Dormio but not Oceanus, and tail protein genes. Despite the generation of several chimeras, none of them have given Oceanus the ability to infect R. capsulatus B10. To better locate which gene or genes controls these two phenotypes, a systematic approach has recently been adopted. Rather than targeting specific genes of interest, whole regions of the genome spanning 10 kb are currently being swapped into Oceanus. While the results are still pending, we are hopeful that one of these regions will expand Oceanus’s host range and allow us to further narrow our search for the genetic switch responsible. It is hoped that these experiments will provide valuable knowledge to further our understanding of viral genetics and evolution.......
Crossing the Subjects: History and Writing in the Classroom...

Educators who push for the introduction of differing subjects or interdisciplinary work into their classroom argue that the incorporation of a second topic into their classroom helps facilitate different avenues of learning for students. Backed up by the teachings from Dawn Shepherd, Heidi Estrem, and Beth Brunk-Chaves, the incorporation of writing into classrooms allowed for students to have a greater opportunity for retention of new information. In this classroom research study, I examine the incorporation of english writing methods into two Freshman level World History classes, focusing specifically on the usage of writing in formative assessments helping with the summative assessments at the end of an unit. Educators can greatly benefit from this study as the findings show that the incorporation of a secondary discipline into the classroom can help with students expressing themselves and their knowledge of the subject in more ways rather than in just a traditional manner.......
Dick Clark President Accused of Abuse, Inappropriate Language at Previous Job (Exclusive)...
2 days ago
Amy Thurlow, the president of Dick Clark Productions whose management style has led to at least five executive departures this year, was the subject of complaints about her drinking, abusive behavior and inappropriate language in a previous executive role at TV Guide, TheWrap has learned. Before joining DCP, which produces the annual Golden Globes and Academy of Country Music awards, Thurlow drew criticism for her work as CFO of TV Guide Network from 2011 to 2014. Thurlow was “despised” by her colleagues for bullying subordinates, was often “pass-out” drunk at company events and made an inappropriate remark to an Asian American colleague that led to an HR complaint, according to at least one individual who worked with her at the time. Lionsgate, which owned TV Guide Network, said it would not comment on a personnel issue. Through a DCP spokesperson, Thurlow declined to address these allegations or complaints about a toxic culture at Dick Clark Productions. Complaints about Thurlow’s management style and abilities intensified at Dick Clark Productions, where she was named president in November 2019 by Asif Satchu and Modi Wyczk, the co-CEOs and co-owners of DCP parent company MRC, along with Todd Boehly. She joined the company in 2014, working as COO and CFO and reporting to her former bosses from the TV Guide Network, Mike Mahan and Allen Shapiro. Mahan supported her rise to president, as he stepped out of the company, according to several knowledgeable individuals. Others were shocked at her promotion. “When she was given that job, anyone who knew her was like: Are you kidding me? Her finance team didn’t even consider her to be that knowledgeable about the workings of the business,” one executive said. “When there were questions about the business, she was often calling in a panic. She didn’t learn or know the fundamentals. It’s bizarre and insane that she was given that title and responsibility.” Also Read: 5 Top Executives Quit Dick Clark Productions Amid 'Toxic Culture' Complaints (Exclusive) Amy Thurlow and Mike Mahan at the 2020 Golden Globes (Photo by Frazer Harrison/Getty Images) Another executive close to DCP also questioned Thurlow’s elevation. “When she took over, she was not prepared to manage,” this insider said. “Amy doesn’t have that comfort zone to do that. She got hit with the pandemic, she got hit with the debacle of award shows. She was not prepared. It’s a tough job, and she’d always had Mike (Mahan) and Allen (Shapiro) in her corner to go to. And with Mike and Allen gone, she’d go to the corner and there was no one there.” Two executives said that DCP has still not closed a deal with CBS to air the ACM Awards after this year’s ceremony airs on April 18. “She didn’t start negotiating until January,” one of the executives said. “That’s reckless.” Another insider suggested that the decision to postpone renegotiations was Satchu and Wyczk’s. A television executive at a major company who works closely with Thurlow said she was essentially set up to fail. “She’s in way over her head. She was put in this job and wasn’t prepared for it. You need someone who can lead the troops. These shows are hard. Everyone has to row in the same direction. But she doesn’t have that in her DNA — she’s not that kind of person. If you’ve just been a CFO trying to figure out how to have people make their quarter (numbers) — you’re not a leader.” This person added: “I do know she raises her voice and talks in inappropriate ways. But she’s pressured by people above her in the food chain and she reacts poorly. It’s what’s happening as a result of not being able to handle pressure or having the skill set to do the job.” In a statement to TheWrap, a spokesperson for DCP disputed the characterizations of Thurlow’s tenure at the company. “This is a misogynistic assault on a strong female leader. For the past six years, Amy was a top ranking officer of a management team responsible for a spectacular tripling of the EBITDA of the company,” the statement reads. “She was the hand-picked successor of previous leadership and absolutely earned the opportunity to rise to the role of President. This couldn’t have been a harder first year on the job for any leader, much less one in the world of live event production. Amy and our remarkable, hardworking and talented team, safely produced numerous live events in a condensed time frame in the midst of the pandemic. Amy does recognize that she has room for improvement in areas, and is committed to grow via collecting and addressing feedback directly with her team. We will not be commenting further on what we believe is a sexist, scurrilous and venomous attack by anonymous sources.” (Mahan and Shapiro declined to comment for this article.) On Friday, Thurlow held an all-hands meeting for DCP staffers in which she acknowledged the complaints about her leadership and said she was “taking it seriously,” according to an individual with knowledge of the meeting. She encouraged people with issues to air them and give feedback “in any way they feel comfortable.” As TheWrap reported earlier this week, five top DCP executives have quit in the past few weeks amid complaints of what multiple individuals described as a toxic culture. An insider described Thurlow as someone who was “very, very challenging” to work for, calling out a management style “that could be classified as toxic.” Also Read: Shonda Rhimes, Ava DuVernay Call Out Golden Globes Voters for 'Ignorance,' Self-Dealing Dick Clark Productions President Amy Thurlow with Ricky Gervais and then- Hollywood Foreign Press Association head Lorenzo Soria ahead of the 2020 Golden Globe Awards. (Getty Images) Thurlow has left a long trail of disgruntled colleagues and employees in her wake. The individual who worked previously with Thurlow at TV Guide said she stood out for riding her staff until all hours of the night, frequently yelling at people who didn’t respond to her liking. On one occasion, the individual said, Thurlow broke her leg and required one of her senior staffers to accompany her to Los Angeles “for the sole purpose of driving her around… She had a vice president helping her get in and out of cars.” Thurlow declined to respond to this incident, or any specific accusations about her past behavior. The insider said that Thurlow also showed signs of having a serious drinking problem during her time at TV Guide. “She was always drunk at any company function,” the individual said. “She would get pass-out drunk. Employees had to carry her down the stairs from a company party because she’d pass out, and it was always finance people who worked for her who always had to do these unspeakable tasks.” At one holiday party in New York City, the insider recalled, Thurlow and another top executive approached Leslie Furuta, a vice president of communications of Asian descent, and said: “Our nickname for you is sex kitten.” Christy Tanner, then the general manager of TV Guide Digital, was told of the exchange and reported it to Lionsgate’s human resources department since the studio owned half of the company, according to the knowledgeable individual. Tanner also called Mahan and told him that Thurlow needed to go to rehab. Mahan said it wasn’t necessary, the individual said, “and that was the end of that.” Furuta, who could not be reached for comment, declined at the time to press the matter, according to one individual with knowledge of the situation. Mahan declined to comment. Tanner could not be reached for comment.......

‘Star Trek’ Film Set for 2023 Is Top Secret Project Produced by JJ Abrams...
2 days ago
As part of Paramount’s release calendar shuffle on Friday, the studio set a 2023 release date for a new “Star Trek” movie. The project is a top secret film produced by J.J. Abrams through his Bad Robot label, an individual with knowledge told TheWrap. And in fact, it’s totally separate from another “Star Trek” script that Abrams is producing. That one is being written by “Star Trek: Discovery” writer and consulting producer Kalinda Vazquez. No details beyond that were made clear, including whether or not the new film will be set in the same universe as the previous trilogy of films starring Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto. The last entry in that series was 2016’s “Star Trek Beyond,” which was directed by Justin Lin and made $343.4 million worldwide. Also Read: 'Top Gun,' 'Mission: Impossible' Sequels Pushed Back in Shuffle of Paramount Slate Paramount did, however, reveal the movie’s release date: June 9, 2023. It’s expected that more details might be shared about the still-untitled film when Chicago hosts an official “Star Trek” convention that’s currently lined up for April 2022. This is the latest “Star Trek” project in a long series of potential films that have started and stopped at the studio, including one by “Legion” creator Noah Hawley and another one that was being hatched by Quentin Tarantino. “Star Trek” has remained top of mind for many fans in the last few years following the success of series like “Picard,” “Discovery” and even the animated “Lower Decks.” Paramount, as part of its release shifts on Friday, also bumped back “Top Gun: Maverick,” the seventh and eighth “Mission: Impossible” films and “Dungeons & Dragons,” while setting dates for the untitled Bee Gees biopic and moving up the release of “Snake Eyes.” Related stories from TheWrap:'Star Trek: Discovery' Season 4 Teaser Reveals Captain Burnham's Biggest New Threat (Video)'Star Trek: Picard' Season 2 Preview Teases the Return of Q (Video)'Star Trek: Prodigy' Jumps From Nickelodeon to Paramount+......
