This is a story all about how the Oscars controversy got flipped, turned upside down. Will Smith is at the forefront of the current boycott against the Academy Awards following a lack of diversity among 2016’s nominees. Really, the problem runs much deeper than that. The lack of diversity has been a trend throughout the 87-year history of the Academy , which is reportedly 94 percent white and 76 percent men.  The controversy caused a very public backlash against the Oscars and prompted passionate responses from all sides.

Marco Rubio’s Long Game

“A strong third.” Marco Rubio’s campaign, careful about expectations, insisted this was still their goal in Iowa after the debate last night. Iowa, alive this season with a plains fury, has always seemed unlikely territory for the controlled Floridian. And yet, yesterday afternoon, an NBC News poll put his Iowa support at eighteen per cent, not too far behind Ted Cruz’s twenty-five per cent.

So,  that happened.  Adam McKay, a multi-platform Hollywood hyphenate who helped create some of the most memorable comedies to hit the theaters, is back at the box office with his rendering of Michael Lewis’  The Big Short.  And he’s a man on a mission: “I just feel like if another crisis comes, we’re going to get hit again and we’re going to be on the hook,” he says.   In an interview with The Huffington Post, McKay says he was drawn to this movie — which documents the traders who bet big against America’s “too big to fail” banks before they collapsed — because he was “struck by the fact that the conversation had already stopped” after the financial crisis. So he’s taken Lewis’ story and added a blend of interweaving cinematic techniques, creating a film he hopes will be both enjoyable to watch and offer a call to rectify a system that still shows signs of breaking.

The Ups and Downs of Religion

29Ene

Those (of us) who do sightings of religion in public life are schooled to notice not only the “what” of religious phenomena and happenings, but also the “where” of each. A guiding theme in my observing and reporting derives from a provocative and (only slightly) over-stated claim of José Ortega y Gasset: “Tell me your landscape and I will tell you who you are.” It takes more than our “place” to explain our whole selves, but location tells much. Two items this week popped up on my screen as reminders

Waiting with a neighbor at the bus stop the other day, I heard that PARCC results are starting to trickle out in Maryland, where I live. PARCC, of course, is one of the new assessments intended to help inform parents and educators whether students are on track to graduate from high school ready for either college or career training. Eleven states administered PARCC in the spring, and because these new tests have multi-step problems and require much more in the way of knowledge and skill than most of the old state tests, a student who was proficient on old state tests may no longer be considered proficient by PARCC standards.
