As an anthropologist studying mechanisms for dealing with the past in societies affected by recent conflict and division, much of my time is spent in sparsely populated museums and memorials taking copious notes and, at times, navigating significant language barriers.

Cohn writes: Are the Tories trying to turn the academy into an algorithm? As the third-longest-serving prime minister in Canadian history, Trudeau won elections on four occasions and retired in 1984.

My interest in this situation is obvious. Will we teach students for the jobs of today, not the work of tomorrow? The teachers claim there are several issues in the mix -- class sizes, e-learning, all day kindergarten.

Jonathan Chait that we now know what would have happened if Joe McCarthy had been elected president: McCarthy is surely the closest parallel to Trump that can be found in post-war history.

Americans will have one last chance to save their republic -- in the upcoming election. That much should have been crystal clear before the impeachment process moved to the Senate. They want to tie funding for colleges and universities to what the graduates of these institutions earn.
