  • 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.

    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?

    $361/sq ft?  I don't want to hear whining about tuition hikes ever again.

    After receiving approval from the University of Michigan Board of Regents today, U-M is planning to purchase a .14-acre parcel near the Law Quad by the end of the month.

    The $730,000 price tag is more than triple the property's assessed value.

    Sales of Volt so bad new markets created

    Its worse than we thought.

    Back a couple of months ago, we had a few discussions here about the pitiful sales of GM's Chevy Volt, even WITH the monster government incentive.  A $7500 rebate just didn't cut it for target buyers of the electric boondoggle of Detroit's once upon a time premier automaker, and sales are worse than flat.

    The profits from said eco-box wouldn't pay for the engineering alone much less the tooling and employee cost.  

    However, the employee cost has apparently brought a little fear to the dues collecting part of the team.  So much so, that they have begun to market the volt to a new constituency that is more likely to be swayed by talking green frogs, giant yellow birds, and a fear of drowning polar bears.

    Our children.  At our public schools.

    And from the OFF THE RADAR file

    We have students unionizing at U of M.

    The University of Michigan's Mary Sue Coleman now reaps the sowing, as the regents' meeting at a Dearborn locale brought about the now possible unionization of graduate student researchers. Coleman opposed the move, yet the regents voted to allow it with a 6-2 vote.

    As the infestation of labor expands into the student part of a government subsidized and over fed organization like the University of Michigan, it should be noted that the two dissenting votes were the only voices of reason available.  A release last night from the Republican party of Michigan reads:

    LANSING - Michigan Republican Party Chairman Bobby Schostak praised Republican-nominated University of Michigan Regents Andrea Fischer Newman and Andrew C. Richner today for their recent votes opposing a resolution to allow the school's graduate researchers to unionize.

    "Our regents voted with the majority of Michigan's citizens who do not want to add more costs to our universities without deriving any discernable benefit," Schostak said. "Unfortunately, the majority of Regents voted out of step with taxpayers' desire that our universities be more fiscally responsible."

    The board voted on the question without it previously being on the agenda - thwarting any chance to properly consider other points of view or examine and discuss the long-term impact of the decision.

    "The board should reconsider its decision, reverse itself, and then allow for this issue to get a more thorough examination through a democratic process," Schostak said. "The university should be run for the benefit of the students and other stakeholders, not to fatten the wallet of some union boss."

    That third paragraph is the ringer.  This was not on the agenda for the May 19, 2011 meeting in Dearborn.

    Classic progressives and their tactics. Wonderful.

    How to encourage racism.

    What might you think is a main underlying reason for racism?  Why would someone have a problem with another person who has skin of a different shade or color?

    I would argue its not the color of skin, but what people have been taught to believe are commonalities within people who share the skin color.  Stereotypes that are taught from an early age, and persist until "unlearned" through social interaction.  The sharing of tasks, duties, and similar life experiences are crucial as a demonstration that the difference in skin color is simply THAT..  A difference in skin color.

    So why do we still see attempts to encourage thinking otherwise?  Its happening here in Michigan, and its apparently quite blatant.
