Commentary: Don't Expect Trump to Change on January 20

Mon, 09 Jan 2017 19:23:20 +0000

If, as the old saying goes, past performance is the best predictor of future behavior, then I have a pretty good idea of what we can expect from President Trump. First, he won’t change how he behaves after January 20. Why should he? He gets to give the inaugural address, and not Hillary Clinton, in part because there was one constant Donald Trump, the one we’ve known for years. Love or hate how he behaves -- that’s how he’ll act when he’s president. Indeed, “acting presidential” is how Donald Trump is behaving at any given moment. It has nothing to do with people’s expectations of how a president “should behave.” Second, Donald Trump doesn’t care what anyone thinks. As he has said about himself, he’s pretty smart and knows more than the generals. If you don’t like what he says or what he does, that’s your problem. There is only one very interesting exception to this: when you attack him or his businesses personally. He will go after you with a targeted Tweet. A good example of this is

Fantasy Farming: A Lesson on the Risks in Agriculture

Fri, 06 Jan 2017 15:45:00 +0000

Let’s say you’re a high school student in an agronomy or agriculture class and you’re looking for some real-world experience. You can’t just buy a few hundred acres on which to experiment. Enter: “fantasy farming.” “Fantasy farming” is essentially a game played out on a real field, at a real agriculture research facility. It gives high school students a chance to learn firsthand about the guesswork and gambles that farmers make every year.

Global Journalist: Liberia After Ebola

Thu, 05 Jan 2017 22:07:12 +0000

A year ago the World Health Organization declared the Ebola epidemic in Liberia over. But though the immediate crisis may have passed, Liberia still faces huge challenges in recovering. Two devastating civil wars in the last 30 years destroyed much of the West African nation's infrastructure, and it ranks as one of the poorest countries in the world. At the start of the outbreak some hospitals lacked running water and the country had just 50 doctors. On this edition of Global Journalist, a look at how Liberia is recovering from the epidemic and what aid groups and medical researchers are doing to head off the next outbreak.
