The videos released of Tyre Nichols’ brutal beating which led to his death in Memphis, Tennessee, and the charges against the five former police officers involved has reignited conversations about federal police accountability legislation like the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act – and could have even galvanized bipartisan support for such legislative efforts.

“We need a national conversation on this,” said Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sunday on ABC’s “This Week.”

Critical Thinking: Why Would Someone Believe That Another Person Has All The Answers?

If one was to come across someone that had a deeper understanding of something, it doesn’t mean that they would end up putting this person on a pedestal. As a result of this, the other person will be seen as knowledgeable but one won’t perceive them as being better than they themselves are.

Discover Essential Learner-Centered Strategies For Online Instructors

Why do you aspire to teach, or continue to teach, online classes? This is a question I have been asking myself for over a decade now, and I use it as a means of self-reflection, to determine if I am growing and adapting as the needs of learners are changing. What I’ve found is the technology has certainly changed, and the tools within the classroom have also changed, but there are some basic learner needs that have remained unchanged. For example, learners need to know their online instructor is present and engaged in the class, and easily accessible. This should be a simple requirement to meet, and yet I know of many instructors who check into their classes only when needed, making their job a series of rote functions. Do you believe learners notice this disposition? You can be certain they do, and wish for further engagement by the instructor. Yet if this is an ongoing pattern, from one instructor to the next, learners may come to believe this is what they should expect from an online school.

The Strange Case Of The Sombrero Galaxy

Myriad sparkling stars light up the billions of galaxies that dwell in the observable Universe. The observable, or visible, Universe is that relatively small domain of the unimaginably vast Cosmos that we are able to observe–because the light traveling to us from more distant regions has not had enough time to reach us since the Big Bang almost 14 billion years ago. This is because of the expansion of Space, and the universal speed limit set by light. The galaxies of the Cosmos are remote and mysterious, and the Sombrero Galaxy stands out as one of the most bewitching and bewildering of its starlit kind. In February 2020, a team of astronomers announced that evidence derived from the Hubble Space Telescope indicates that the Sombrero’s many weird attributes are the result of major galaxy mergers–even though its currently smooth disk displays no signs of a recent catastrophic disruption.
