Suspensions Are Not Support - Center for American Progress
This report presents a new analysis—detailed in the appendix—highlighting the prevalence of suspensions and expulsions among young children ages 3 to 5 attending early childhood programs. It also provides background on these exclusionary disciplinary practices; presents analysis of recent nationally representative data; and explains the consequences of expulsions and suspensions for all children, specifically children with disabilities. Finally, it provides recommendations to ensure that all young children—particularly those with disabilities—reap the full benefits of early learning, including:

Prohibit suspensions and expulsions across early childhood settings
Develop alternatives that proactively address children’s emotional and behavioral needs
Invest in teacher professional development
Reduce teacher stress
Empower teachers with tools to fight implicit bias
Promote meaningful family engagement

Movie Posters Collection - Harry Ransom Center Digital Collections
"The Ransom Center's movie poster collection consists of an estimated 10,000 posters and spans the entire history of film from the silent era to the present day. All sizes of American film posters are represented: Window Cards (14" x 22"), Inserts (14" x 36"), Half Sheets (22" x 28"), One Sheets (27" x 41"), Three Sheets (41" x 81"), Six Sheets (81" x81"), and 24 Sheets (i.e.: billboards, 9' x 20.5').

The largest part of the collection comes from the Interstate Theater Circuit. At one time, the Interstate Theater chain consisted of almost every movie theater in Texas, and the posters, film stills, lobby cards, and press books form the foundation of the Ransom Center's film publicity collection. The Interstate posters cover the 1940's through the 1970's with a particular strength in the films of the 1950's and 60's, including musicals, epics, westerns, sword and sandal, horror, and counter culture films. The second major collection of Ransom Center posters is the Sills collection. Philip Sills was a poster dealer who donated his collection of B-movie posters to the Center in the 1960s. The third major collection was donated to the center by W.H. (Deacon) Crain, who for many years, served as the Center's curator of Performing Arts.

Digitization of these posters is an ongoing project, and this digital collection will continue to grow as the project progresses. Read more about the project on the Ransom Center's blog. (...)"

American Democracy Is an Easy Target – Foreign Policy
Instead of looking to punish attackers, policymakers need to start thinking about strengthening the system of democracy itself.

In America, more than in most other Western countries, there is a basic failure of democratic knowledge. In a well-functioning democracy, citizens agree broadly on facts and have some trust in the democratic system, allowing democracy to harness different perspectives and put them to good use. In America, in contrast, distrust and profound disagreements over facts have led to a kind of crisis of democratic knowledge that leaves democracy open to outside manipulation.

Over the last two decades, the common knowledge of American democracy has been undermined.

Google’s AutoML lets you train custom machine learning models without having to code
"The basic idea here, Google says, is to allow virtually anybody to bring their images, upload them (and import their tags or create them in the app) and then have Google’s systems automatically create a customer machine learning model for them. The company says that Disney, for example, has used this system to make the search feature in its online store more robust because it can now find all the products that feature a likeness of Lightning McQueen and not just those where your favorite talking race car was tagged in the text description."

Орки, победившие технарей: Как силовики внедрились в «Лабораторию Касперского» — и к чему это привело. Расследование Ильи Жегулева — Meduz
Kaspersky Security Network была разработана как система, позволяющая вывести борьбу с вредным программным обеспечением на новый уровень: это «облачное решение для обеспечения безопасности», благодаря которому выявлять угрозы можно гораздо быстрее. По словам источника «Медузы», участвовавшего в выводе KSN на рынок, внутри компании ее называют «киберразведкой». Система позволяет администратору затребовать с компьютера пользователя файл, который может представлять угрозу: это позволяет, в частности, анализировать и обезвреживать новые вирусы еще до того, как происходит массовое заражение. При этом, по словам собеседника «Медузы», файл этот может быть любым (например, документ или таблица) — а система работает «не только в автоматическом режиме». Таким образом, утверждает источник, сотрудник лаборатории может скачать любой файл с компьютера, на котором стоит KSN, без ведома его владельца.

Glenn Greenwald: Russia Investigation Is a Red Herring
“It is not an insubstantial portion of Democratic online loyalists who believe that if you deviate from Democratic Party orthodoxy on the Trump-Russia question, you are a paid Kremlin agent,” Greenwald says. And many of those who don’t believe Greenwald works for Vladimir Putin tend to think he does his bidding for free. “I love him,” says former Gawker editor John Cook, who worked with Greenwald at the Intercept. “He’s dead, tragically wrong on this.”

Thanks to this never-ending hot take, Greenwald has been excommunicated from the liberal salons that celebrated him in the Snowden era; anybody who questions the Russia consensus, he says, “becomes a blasphemer. Becomes a heretic. I think that’s what they see me as.” Greenwald is no longer invited on MSNBC, and he’s portrayed in the Twitter fever swamp as a leading villain of the self-styled Resistance. “I used to be really good friends with Rachel Maddow,” he says. “And I’ve seen her devolution from this really interesting, really smart, independent thinker into this utterly scripted, intellectually dishonest, partisan hack.” His view of the liberal online media is equally charitable. “Think about%
