  • Your New Scoop Site

    Welcome to Scoop!

    To help you figure things out, there is a Scoop Admin Guide which can hopefully answer most of your questions.

    Some tips:

    • 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.

    For support, questions, and general help with Scoop, email support@scoophost.com

    ScoopHost.com is currently running Scoop version Undeterminable from .

    "We were trying to do something thoughtful to honor President Coleman for her service to the university and athletic department and unfortunately the sound system backfired on us," athletic director Dave Brandon said in a written statement.

    Backfired?  That's been happening allot around there, ya jackasses.

    ICYMI - End Of A BAD Era

    The era of ever increasing tuition, leftist games, foreign technology transfers and racist admission policies could be over.

    I'll let Henry cover this one

    Replacing retiring President Mary Sue Coleman offers the University of Michigan a historic opportunity to reboot with an administrator who embraces a 21st century, colorblind admissions policy that is succeeding in states like California. The university's board could signal the new era by including Jennifer Gratz on its presidential search committee.
    Its a good start.

    Read the rest.

    A Message To Our Legislators - Beware False Choices

    Snatching Defeat From The Jaws of Victory

    via MCC

    A state fund intended to create 390 Michigan jobs has loaned $7.7 million to 35 companies and created 79 jobs - only 20 percent of the number initially promised.

    Ann Arbor SPARK received an $8 million grant in 2006 to create the Michigan Pre-Seed Capital Fund, which used $7.7 million of that amount. The grant was awarded as part of the Competitive Edge Technology Grants and Loans program, which exists "to encourage the development of competitive edge technologies to create jobs in the state."

    Skip Simms, manager of the Michigan Pre-Seed Capital Fund, said in an email, "We saw a need for early stage capital for start-up technology based companies, which the private sector wasn't providing at the time."

    Gummint creates jobs?  Never has even with coercive theft wealth redistribution.  What he said.

    I'm gonna have to start calling them the Litany Lyins.

    A group of University of Michigan faculty members Monday stopped short of calling for an external review into a six-month lapse in university officials reporting the discovery of child pornography in a University Hospital employee area.

    "Part of the nagging issue that's haunting the institution as a result of this case ... is the apparent discomfort with evaluations and investigations," John Lehman, a biology professor, said at a Faculty Senate Advisory Committee on University Affairs meeting Monday.

    "This thing fell through the cracks," Lehman continued, criticizing the botched reporting of child pornography found on a thumb drive in an employee computer at University Hospital in May. Although a medical resident, her supervisor, hospital security and the university's legal office knew about the pornography, it was not reported to police until Nov. 18.

    Stephen Jenson, a 36-year-old medical resident who worked regularly with children during the six-month reporting lapse, was charged Dec. 17 with four counts of possessing child pornography.

    I'll be damned, Detroit's liberal fish wrap made me giggle today.

    A group of Occupy U-M protesters took over Thursday's University of Michigan Board of Regents meeting seconds after President Mary Sue Coleman started it.

    About 20 protesters stood on each side of the regents' conference table. One protester read a speech, pausing every few seconds for the rest of the group to echo him.

    They were protesting the financial management of the school, saying it's run as a business and regents are selling education to wealthy people like a commodity.

    Holy crap!  Could it be the #OccuTurds are figgerin' things out?

    Michigan over Ohio

    A first rate job by the Wolverines, and a great finish to the regular season with the Michigan title 9 sustaining football program jazzing the Ohio State Buckeyes 40-34.

    Dang, that was a heart pounder!

    Now, I want those officials hogtied.  Some of the poorest officiating in the big house I have seen, and it seemed to be one sided in Ohio's favor.  If they keep that up, the women's lacross team will have to be funded by reducing Mary Sue Coleman's car allowance.

    Laugh Of The Day

    Sometimes overpaid, overly powerful, over egoed individuals can cartoon themselves in a single line. Mary Sue Coleman's comment during a discussion on consolidation just struck me as humorous.  from the Ivory Tower:
    "We are market driven," Coleman said. "If we are offering a degree that nobody wants, we drop it."
    Uhh  yeah, but Mary sue? If you eliminate ALL "Non Market" elements from the program, could you still say that?  

    Right.  I thought so. But the chuckles don't stop there. WSU president Allan Gilmour says there's not much "clamor" for consolidation.

    "The alternative (to autonomous universities) is a czar, a commission in Lansing," he said, adding he didn't think any of the business leaders in the audience would want politicians running their companies.

    Oh heavens no.  Not politicians.  In fact I agree.  

    But Mr Gilmour? They pay to play. WE pay to play.  So maybe you ought to swear off public assistance entirely and for the benefit of M.S. Coleman and yourself become TRULY autonomous, so that you can attain TRUE market status.

    Ask your economics departments how that will work for you.

    And carry a laugh prompt card for use as necessary.

    I happened to come across an interesting blurb in the JOA-Press about questionable practices at our newly elected Governor's alma mater.

    The University of Michigan has barred about 2,000 people from its campus or parts of its campus since 2001, according to documents released this week by the university.

    The policy is now under review.

    Those restricted from campus receive trespass warnings that come with a lifetime ban that can only be lifted or modified by the campus police chief.

    Remember those last three words...
