Donald Trump And The OJ Defense

quoting Jack Goldsmithvia The Weekly Standard
Thursday, January 11, 2018

Robert Mueller was supposed to be fired by now. That was, at the end of 2017, the fervent hope of both Democrats eager for a Saturday Night Massacre rerun and of some burn-it-all-down fans of the president. They saw the document demands by GOP lawmakers and their challenges to the impartiality of FBI and Department of Justice officials as the precursor to a Nixonian strategy of cutting the head off the investigation.

'The Square And The Tower' Considers The Staggering Power Of Networks

featuring Niall Fergusonvia Christian Science Monitor
Thursday, January 11, 2018

Hierarchical structures – empires, kingdoms, companies – tend to dominate the study of history, for understandable reasons: they're concentrated, dramatic, and comparatively easy to research. They make coins, build roads and prisons, and keep boxes and boxes of receipts. As historian Niall Ferguson points out in his remarkably interesting new book The Square and the Tower, this concentrated visibility of hierarchies makes them much easier to research and analyze than the more scattered and diffused networks that are the other major shape power takes in human affairs.

Why Disparate Impact Theory Is A Bad Fit For School Discipline

by Michael J. Petrillivia EducationNext
Wednesday, January 10, 2018

In 2014, in response to findings that African American students were three times as likely to be suspended as white students, the Obama Administration sent a lengthy “Dear Colleague” letter to school districts nationwide, spelling out a new policy on school discipline, motivated by disparate impact theory. It warned administrators that they could be subject to a federal civil rights investigation if their data showed significant racial disparities in the use of suspensions or expulsions, and could be found guilty of discrimination even if they had race-neutral discipline policies that were being applied even-handedly.
