To help you figure things out, there is a Scoop Admin Guide which can hopefully answer most of your questions.
Most of the layout is changed in "Blocks", found in the admin tools menu
Features can be turned on and off, and configured, in "Site Controls" in the admin tools menu
Stories have an "edit" link right beside the "Full Story" link on an index page, and right beside the "Post a Comment" link on the full story page. They can also be edited by clicking the story title in the "Story List" admin tool
Boxes are what allow you to write new features for Scoop; they require a knowledge of the perl programming language to work with effectively, although you can often make small changes without knowing much perl. If you would like a feature added but cannot program it yourself, ScoopHost does custom Scoop programming as one of its services.
If you aren't sure where to look for a particular feature or piece of display, try the "Search Admin Tools" link in the admin tools menu.
University of Michigan Health System and the University of Michigan Medical School will no longer peddle sugary drinks in their cafeterias and vending machines, banning the sale of everything from sodas to sweetened coffees.
"It is part of our effort to model healthy behaviors," said Pete Barkey, a spokesman for the health system.
And when U of M's "effort" does not include the use of my tax dollars, they are free to do whatever the Hell they want.
But several other efforts to reduce access have bred backlash for going to far to restrict personal choice. Courts have ruled that New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg's push to ban the sale of sugary drinks in containers larger than 16 ounces was illegal.
The Left is "pro choice" when comes to killing babies and Teh Ghey marriage. Have a soft drink? Forgettaboutit. All those mentally ill cretins are fully deserving to be mocked.
In the video below, I see Sen. Bob Corker, however, if one listens closely, all you'll hear is ousted Party Committeeman, and NPV lobbyist, Saul Anuzis embarrass himself debating a principled Conservative.
Thank you, Sen. Ted Cruz! Keep exposing all the duplicitous dregs taking refuge in the GOP Big Tent for what they truly are - spineless, pandering, Democrat-lite Progressives.
Another day older and deeper in debt
Saint Peter don't you call me 'cause I can't go
I owe my soul to the Government store
The state of Michigan will soon allow companies, organizations and communities to use the popular "Pure Michigan" branding in joint advertising and marketing.
"We will create customized 'Pure Michigan' advertising campaigns centered around clusters of business that we have in the state," Finney [MEDC] said. "You could take automotive, or you could take dairy [Subsidized], or you could take other agricultural products [Subsidized too, even The Dead], or software and we'll create customizable opportunities for companies to actively participate in the campaign."
The move is an extension of what the state has done with the tourism industry, where it has worked with about 50 partners to jointly advertise cities and tourist attractions such as The Henry Ford [501(c)(3) Tax Exempt] in Dearborn, Finney said. In those cases, the state [all taxpayers] and the entitiessplit the costs for the creative advertising, he said.
...and that government of choosing the people, over the people, forking the people, shall not parish from Lansing, nor D.C.
Usually a video diversion, however, today y'all's get some reading.
A Schizophrenic Elephant
Every now and then, a Republican Party leader must feel tempted to stand up and say. "Folks, you've got us wrong. We don't really stand for any of the things that you think we do. We like small business, in theory. But we like big business more. That's about all we have in common. Also we're still against Communism, not that it matters anymore. But we're fine with having a lot of government agencies. We created most of them. And we like abortion and gay rights. We're also on board with Global Warming, illegal immigration and some international law."
That rarely happens. It rarely happens because that Republican Party is the one that was nearly consigned to oblivion in the first half of the last century. And as the Romney campaign showed, running on a platform of nothing but big business is not very inspiring. If Romney had actually been honest about his views, instead of dressing them up to win the primaries, he would have done even worse in the general election.
Our Michigan tax dollars at work obstructing our 2nd Amendment Rights while criminals roam freely.
Seeking to make a point about firearms, a Michigan man decided to open carry his .45-cal. handgun at his daughter's school and later uploaded the footage to YouTube. The father says he made sure to first notify the school, the Michigan State Police, the county sheriff and other local law enforcement officials that he would be exercising his right to carry a gun.
The rest of the man's trip to the school was seemingly incident free. He later had a conversation with the deputy about Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder recently vetoing a bill that would have permitted citizens with extra training to carry concealed weapons.
"To be honest with you, that would be better," the woman identified as a deputy says, talking about concealed carry.
