"Up" in these contexts means stronger/harder/more energy - just like "turn up the heat" does. Not temperature!

For the first 3 or so years of Trump's term there was certain mode of analysis fairly common among self-styled savvy centrists, averse leftists, and tons of conservatives that basically held that everyone freaking out about Trump was being overwrought and hysterical.

A statement like "In folklore, X is thought to mean Y" has no value without its proper cultural/historical context. Who thinks this? When & where? How do you know? How does this belief relate to other parts of their lives? Does everybody think this way?

I've talked before about the history of folklore study, & how it was enlisted by nationalist powers to construct national cultures that served ugly ideological ends. In 2020 we need to be especially sensitive to who gets to define "the folk" and why this matters.

Honestly, it's not clear that there's anything else they can do.

Question wording is important.

Not necessarily. And it depends on what data. The content of the recording? The record of who was part of a meeting, meeting length, meeting ID, etc.? This is why teachers shouldn't work outside of supported platforms at their schools. Make the school's lawyers determine that.

Huh. I would say that the college or university is the institution. And I would also say that teachers should not be using Zoom outside of an institutional account with a contract in place. Without such an agreement, Zoom isn't an appropriate platform for FERPA-protected data.

That's not how this works. How much storage an institution has and how long recordings are kept are usually up to the institution. Institutions don't have unlimited amounts of storage.

There is a particularly American rhetorical use of "belief," or more specifically "believe," that's been making my teeth itch for a few years. This isn't a perfect example, but it still speaks to the pattern. My IU students used it constantly. My MUN students don't. (thread)

Remember when presidential scandals were about beer summits and tan suits? I miss those days.

If you say people can't vote until their debts are paid and then object to their debts being paid, you confirm that your true purpose was to prevent voting rather than to collect debt.

People who are very chill about the President not committing to the peaceful transfer of power unless they “get rid of the ballots” are too chill for me. This seems an awfully serious thing to be dismissive about. At the very least it’s a good reason to oppose him vigorously.

I think it's actually quite important to understand that "fairy tales" aren't about "happy endings" -- that's the point of this tweet. There's a lot to learn from the old stories about dealing with hardship.

Actually, chipping away and adapting are fairy tales endings. Like knitting shirts from nettles over many years. Fairy tales tell us how to get through the dark woods: perseverance, patience, listening to animals.
