The survey results are based on a two-part assessment process: an institutional audit that captured demographics and workplace policies, and a survey administered to faculty, administrators, and professional support staff. Karla Schuster has been assistant vice president of university relations at Hofstra University since October 2009. What stands out to me is not so much the sheer frequency of speaking engagements TR had (is this close to what Obama and McCain do today?) but what surrounds those speeches and discussions.
First, making time for personal growth during the day, especially the growth of the intellect, is extremely important. So I take some encouragement from this little bit of history, that the most effective thinkers and doers from our past had schedules that were even more insanely busy than mine, but never suffered from burnout or lost their passion and drive for what they do — because they took time to feed themselves and grow themselves just as they fed others and helped them, and their country, to grow as well.

The Chronicle Blog Network, a digital salon sponsored by The Chronicle of Higher Education, features leading bloggers from all corners of academe. The Hechinger Report did a series of articles on the recent Democratic Convention.  One of these entitled, Have Obama’s Education Policies Weakened The Democratic Party?
There was the Reverend William Barber II, President of the NAACP in North Caroline, who gave a sermon on moral responsibility to our fellowmen and women. With his wife standing beside him, Khan brought Democratic delegates to their feet by denouncing Trump and his proposed ban on Muslims.
Few would argue Wednesday that what the Republican presidential nominee said will directly cause Russia to conduct more cyber-espionage against the U.S. It is another example of Donald Trump’s recklessness and his tendency to  divide  rather than to unify. Last night was one for the ages as speaker after speaker gave eloquent and inspiring messages to a receptive Democratic National Convention crowd that loved what was being said. President Obama was powerful as he passed the leadership of the Democratic Party and hopefully the presidency to Hillary Clinton. Vice President Joe Biden gave a raucous speech filled with patriotism which had the crowd chanting USA USA USA.  He also showed his human, sensitive side in talking about his son, Beau, who died last year of cancer. Hillary Clinton’s running mate, Tim Kaine, represented the strong but humble yeoman politician who invoked his family to good affect.  He also called out Donald Trump on failing to release his tax returns. The main speakers last night, Corey Booker, Michelle Obama, Elizabeth Warren, and Bernie Sanders gave solid emotion-filled oratory that rocked the audience and I am sure the television viewers.  Here are a few snippets.
Elizabeth Warren:  Skewered Donald Trump as the “Great Trump Hot-Air Machine” and “his goofy hat”.
In light of the recent WikiLeaks scandal plaguing the beginning of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, Donna Brazile has been named the interim chair replacing Debbie Wasserman Schultz. PHILADELPHIA ? Donna Brazile, the interim chair of the Democratic National Committee, apologized Monday for the party’s email leak. WikiLeaks released 19,252 emails from “seven key figures” in the Democratic National Committee last week, some of which suggested that the DNC heavily favored Hillary Clinton’s campaign over that of Sen. CUNY’s faculty union, the Professional Staff Congress, says part-time faculty members should celebrate the gains it has made on their behalf in a hard-fought labor agreement.
The agreement, accepted by CUNY’s administration and board last month, would offer many of the university system’s part-time instructors both much more job security and access to health insurance that they previously lacked.
It has been American higher education’s dilemma that adjunct and contingent faculty have been paid so poorly.  As the article suggests, the CUNY offer does little to alleviate the problem. Tim is a lifelong fighter for progressive causes and one of the most qualified vice presidential candidates in our nation’s history.
When he returned to the states and graduated from Harvard Law, he could have done anything. He’s a man of relentless optimism who believes no problem is unsolvable if you’re willing to put in the work. But what matters most is a simple test that’s not so simple to meet: whether the person could step in at a moment’s notice and serve as president. Ezra Klein: Donald Trump’s nomination is the first time American politics has left me truly afraid! Back in February, I wrote that Trump is the most dangerous major candidate for president in memory. Trump is vindictive. So far, the unifying theme of Trump’s convention is that the leader of the opposition party should be thrown in jail.
He was upset that Ohio didn’t vote for him, so he sat its delegation in the cheap seats, even though the state is hosting the convention.
Trump is a bigot. Donald Trump kicked off his campaign calling Mexican immigrants murderers and rapists. This is not a man who should be put in charge of an increasingly diverse country that needs to find allies in an increasingly diverse world.
Trump is a sexist. Stories of Trump’s casual sexism abound, but during the campaign, it was women who questioned him who felt the full force of his misogyny. After Carly Fiorina challenged him in a debate, Trump said to Rolling Stone, “Look at that face. Trump is a liar. Trump boasts constantly that he had the judgment and foresight to oppose the Iraq War.
Trump is a narcissist. Trump’s towering self-regard worked for him as a real estate developer. The most recent example was the 28 minutes he spent talking about himself when he was supposed to be introducing Mike Pence, his vice presidential candidate, for the first time. Trump is very, very gullible. This is related to his conspiracy theories, but Trump has a habit of believing and retweeting bad information that sounds good to him at the time.
This has led to, among other things, Trump retweeting false crime statistics, Trumpretweeting Mussolini quotes from a Twitter account called Il Duce, Trump promoting a fake video claiming a protester who rushed his stage was sent by ISIS, and Trumpendorsing a National Enquirer report suggesting Ted Cruz’s dad helped kill JFK. That’s a reasonable response from your uncle who forwards you weird email chains, but not from a presidential candidate. Trump doesn’t apologize, and his defensiveness escalates situations. On Monday night, it became very clear that Melania Trump’s 2016 convention speech had lifted two paragraphs from Michelle Obama’s 2008 convention speech.
Instead, the Trump campaign turned it into a multi-day story and a character issue by denying anything had happened and blaming Hillary Clinton. The campaign also tried to argue that Michelle Obama doesn’t own the English language, and that similar language was used by Twilight Sparkle, a My Little Pony (I’m serious). A similar pattern played out when Trump tweeted an anti-Hillary meme that superimposed a Star of David atop a pile of money and accused Clinton of corruption. Trump has proven too lazy to learn about policy. Trump didn’t know much about policy when the campaign started, and as far as anyone can tell, he hasn’t made any obvious effort to rectify that. The latest and most damaging example is his interview with the New York Times, in which he said he would not automatically defend NATO countries against attack from Russia.
But this is a pattern for Trump, who doesn’t bother to come up with convincing answers even to obvious questions, and definitely has not put in the time to develop a deep understanding of the issues he might face as president. Trump has run an incompetent campaign and convention. As brilliant as Trump has been in securing media attention for himself and channeling the anxieties of conservative voters, he hasn’t bothered to build a real campaign organization, and his convention has been a festival of unforced errors.
This is the context of Melania Trump’s plagiarism, of Ted Cruz’s anti-endorsement, of the night that was supposed to be about jobs and the economy but was actually about Benghazi and jailing Hillary Clinton. The most generous interpretation of this is that Trump is capable of running an effective organization, but he’s just not interested in conventions and field operations in the way he is interested in golf courses and condos. Trump is a bully. Trump won the Republican nomination by proving that even adults can be bullied with schoolyard taunts.


It seems like this shouldn’t have to be said, but it’s better to be kind than cruel, and there’s a deep, instinctual cruelty in Trump — he finds people’s weak spots, their insecurities, and he exposes them in front of crowds. It is said that the benefit of America’s long presidential campaigns is they offer the candidates time to show us who they really are.
Perhaps the hardest thing to do in contemporary American politics is to imagine how the world looks from the other side. The most personally moving, and most fundamentally patriotic, moment of the Democratic National Convention was the appearance by the bereaved parents of Army Captain Humayun Khan, and the statement about the meaning of their son’s life and death, and about the Constitution, by Mr. After Khizr Khan spoke, politicians and commentators on most networks said they were moved, humbled, inspired, choked up. In the 19th century, children, youths, and adults “mingled freely together” at rowdy campaign rallies, lured by the holy trinity of booze, barbecue, and bonfire. In 2006, Donald Trump made plans to purchase the Menie Estate, near Aberdeen, Scotland, aiming to convert the dunes and grassland into a luxury golf resort.
The Atlantic’s editors and writers share their recommendations for summer reading—new titles, old favorites, and others in between.
In her first novel, Yaa Gyasi cleverly weaves the intergenerational tale of a family through a series of short, but interrelated stories set in what’s now Ghana during the mid-18th century.
At the end of 2013, in the low-slung, industrial Taiwanese city of Kaohsiung, a bevy of officials came to attend the ribbon cutting of a huge former hotel that had undergone a top-to-bottom, multimillion-dollar renovation. The World Well-Being Project uses Facebook updates to correlate language with personality traits. The so-called “World Well-Being Project” started as an effort to gauge happiness across various states and communities.
Last month, my wife and I found ourselves in a disagreement about whether or not our apartment was clean enough for guests—the type of medium-sized disagreement that likely plagues all close relationships. As Hurricane Katrina raged through New Orleans in 2005, neighborhood after neighborhood collapsed from flooding. Without childcare resources, some families send their children back to be cared for by relatives—only to return at the age of five.
For a graduate course in Ethnographic Research Methods, I used a graphic display that depicted how individual assignments helped achieve a single goal.  This helped students understand that if they missed one assignment, for example, they could not meet one of the objectives for the course. Along with helping faculty think and rethink our courses, graphical displays provide a number of benefits to students.  Graphical displays are clearer to visual learners, they show how a course is organized, and they function as a map to a course.

The primary factor in deciding whether an institution received recognition was the employee feedback.
I can’t remember how I got interested in this book, but I came away from it greatly appreciative of Roosevelt not only as a great President but as a man whose capacity for both thinking and doing were almost superhuman.
Shortly after Roosevelt was nominated for the Vice-Presidency in 1900 (the previous Vice-President, Garret Hobart, having died suddenly the previous year), he went out on the campaign trail for William McKinley. TR was reading whatever interested him, regardless of whether it pertained directly to being the Vice-President or not — ornithology and Walter Scott along with everything else. I am affiliated with the Mathematics Department at Grand Valley State University in Allendale, Michigan. She traveled to the Democratic convention in Philadelphia this week to protest Clinton and support the Green Party candidate, Jill Stein.
Corbett, who authorized deep cuts to education, is the primary culprit behind the Philadelphia union’s membership losses, not President Obama, but she’s hoping that a Clinton administration will take education policy in a different direction.
John Allen, (Ret.) who was the commander of NATO forces in Afghanistan, and who endorsed Hillary Clinton as the best candidate to lead our armed forces. Khan who was killed in Iraq.  The father, Khizr Khan, spoke about the heroism of his son,  who was killed by a vehicle loaded with hundreds of pounds of explosives. Trump should have done was to warn President Vladimir Putin of Russia that if he interfered in the election, American political leaders would be united in imposing consequences of some kind on his nation, as the Republican candidate’s vice-presidential running mate, Gov. As newswoman Andrea Mitchell said afterwards, he may be the best president at public speaking since Abraham Lincoln.
And I watch my daughters, two beautiful, intelligent black young women, playing with their dogs on the White House lawn. I sincerely apologize, my friends, for those of you who took offense and were offended, for those of you who feel betrayed and were betrayed by the ridiculous and insensitive and inappropriate emails released from the Democratic Party,” Brazile said during a black caucus meeting at the Democratic National Convention. But many part-time instructors and graduate assistants oppose ratification of the new contract, arguing that it represents more of a defeat than a victory. It would not substantially increase their pay, however, and would do little to close gaps between their earnings and those of their full-time counterparts. Wangerin, an adjunct assistant professor of anthropology at Lehman College who is active in a group called CUNY Struggle. But instead of going to some big corporate firm, he chose to fight housing discrimination as a civil rights lawyer in Richmond. To the people in Richmond, an underfunded school wasn’t a Democratic or Republican problem.
That commitment to delivering results has stayed with him throughout his decades-long career as a public servant. He will fight tooth and nail for American families, and he’ll be a dogged fighter in our campaign against Donald Trump and Mike Pence. His speech tonight invoked a nightmarish American hellscape that doesn’t actually exist. Trump didn’t like the Washington Post’s coverage of his campaign, so he barred its reporters from his rallies and threatened to use the power of the presidency to bring an antitrust suit against the Post’s owner, Jeff Bezos. He was angry about an interview his ex-ghostwriter gave to the New Yorker, so he sent his lawyers after him. The first Republican debate, for instance, was hosted by Fox News and moderated by Megyn Kelly, Bret Baier, and Chris Wallace. He’s said that Bill Ayers is the real author of Barack Obama’sDreams From My Father, explained that the unemployment rate in America is really over 40 percent, and suggested that both Antonin Scalia and Vince Foster were murdered.
The error was an embarrassment, but it could have been dispatched quickly by simply admitting fault and apologizing. Finally, days later, the Trump campaign admitted there was plagiarism and blamed a miscommunication between Melania and her speechwriter. Instead, his first instinct would be to escalate every conflict in an effort to bully foreign adversaries into giving him his way. It’s not obvious Trump meant to say that, or even knew what saying that meant, as Manafort immediately began denying Trump had ever said it. Others have certainly testified to the trouble Trump has focusing on tasks that don’t engage him.
That is not because he is too conservative, as some Democrats would have it, or because he is not conservative enough, as many Republicans would have it.


How generational divisions have driven down voter turnout over the last century of American politics.
Older citizens introduced young people to politics, helping to drive voter turnouts to their highest levels in U.S.
He and the estate’s owner, Tom Griffin, sat down to discuss the transaction at the Cock & Bull restaurant.
She said that what worried President Kennedy during that very dangerous time was that a war might be started—not by big men with self-control and restraint, but by little men—the ones moved by fear and pride. The two women at the center of the novel, Effia and Esi, are half-sisters who wind up on vastly different paths. Speaking before the throngs of celebrants who blocked the flow of traffic, Taiwan’s deputy director of the Ministry of the Interior praised the group that funded the renovation and presented them, for the 10th year straight, with the national “Excellent Religious Group” award.
In the midst of it, there was a lull and, feeling exhausted all of a sudden, I got up and left the living room.

You cannot continue to expend energy indefinitely without fueling back up somehow, if you expect to last long.
His reading times average just 45 minutes each, split evenly between three half-hour time slots and three one-hour time slots (the longer ones coming outside the usual work day).
The Hechinger reporter interviewed teachers in Philadelphia where their union has seen its membership decrease in the last decade from 21,000 to 11,000 members.  Those interviewed expressed concerns that a President Clinton might mean a further diminution of their ranks. The 27-year-old soldier, who was born in the United Arab Emirates, ordered his unit to halt while he walked toward the vehicle, saving the lives of his fellow soldiers. Cuomo, a Democrat, at that point had proposed a steep cut in state support for the university system. He and his wife joined a church, built a home centered around their faith, and raised three beautiful children. It was simply a problem that needed fixing, and his constituents were counting on him to solve it. I want someone who will be able to give me their best advice, look me in the eye, and tell me they disagree with me when they do. He has not become more responsible or more sober, more decent or more generous, more considered or more informed, more careful or more kind.
His promise to restore order made him sound like the aspiring strongman his critics fear him to be.
He hates the protesters who interrupt his campaigns, so he said he would look into paying the legal fees of a supporter who sucker-punched one of them. On September 11, 2002, Trump was asked by Howard Stern whether he supported the invasion of Iraq. But Trump himself went on a Twitter rampage, arguing that what was clearly a Star of David was actually just a sheriff’s star, or maybe just a regular old star, and that the campaign shouldn’t have removed the offending meme in the first place. The fact that Trump would entrust his health to a doctor who would sign off on a note like this should terrify his family and friends.
It’s because the presidency is a powerful job where mistakes can kill millions, and whoever holds it needs to take that power seriously and wield it responsibly.
But I’ve also been talking to his supporters and advisors, trying to understand how they see and hear the same things that I do, and draw such very different conclusions.
You think Donald Trump is screwing up because he keeps saying things that you find offensive or off-the-wall. But it was actually this tendency to slice up the electorate into unique generations that drove young people from politics in the first place. Griffin recalls that Trump was a hard-nosed negotiator, reluctant to give in on even the tiniest details. One is captured during a battle between tribes, sold, and winds up on a slave ship bound for the U.S. But in aggregate, the things we say on social media paint a fairly accurate portrait of our inner selves.
We were exchanging tense emails while I was at my office, and I began to feel the slow oozing onset of sleep, the same tiredness that came on when, as a child, I rode in the backseat of the car on the way home from some undesired trip. But one building, a plantation-home-turned-museum on Moss Street built two centuries before the disaster, was left almost entirely unscathed. This is very easy to forget, as we see the sheer amount of stuff in our inboxes and begin to think that if I just had one more hour, I’d get that much more stuff done and be that much happier. In the past, I’ve tried to schedule in these inviolable times for reading and research, but only in single, monolithic, 3-hour long slabs happening once a week.
You never know exactly what is going to pertain to your job, and the most pertinent thing for your job if you’re a teacher is a well-rounded, active, happy mind. He has continued to retweet white supremacists, make racist comments, pick unnecessary fights, contradict himself on the stump, and show an almost gleeful disinterest in building a real campaign or learning about policy.
Trump has lied about his net worth, hisreasons for not releasing his tax returns, and his charitable donations.
Trump has had ample opportunity to demonstrate his sense of seriousness and responsibility. That he is being brought this close to the presidency — that he is one major mistake by Hillary Clinton away from winning it — should scare us all.
What follows isn’t a transcription—it’s a synthesis of the conversations I’ve had, and the insights I’ve gleaned, presented in the voice of an imagined Trump supporter.
But, as Michael D’Antonio writes in his recent biography of Trump, Never Enough, Griffin’s most vivid recollection of the evening pertains to the theatrics. The other—separated from her village and married off to a British slaver—ends up living on top of the dungeons that hold her own kin and hundreds of others who would also become slaves. A team of University of Pennsylvania scientists is using Facebook status updates to find commonalities in the words used by different ages, genders, and even psyches.
A sleepiness that overtakes the body slowly but surely and feels entirely outside of your control.
And it’s not just memos or strictly political works, but fiction, science, and so on. The United States is actively trying to discourage hacking, which is a criminal act, and get countries like China to adhere to norms for operating in cyberspace. Trump has not sought to explain these comments or offer evidence of an alternative judgment he offered elsewhere. It was as if the golden-haired guest sitting across the table were an actor playing a part on the London stage. The novel traces the lineage of these women through the tales of their children, and their children’s children, and so on—up until the present day. I hadn’t meant to fall asleep; I just felt so fatigued in that moment that there was nothing else I could do.
So as I think about making time in my busy schedule for reading and writing, maybe the more realistic approach is to take frequent, small chunks of time in which to do it.
