European Press and the Presidential Election The outcome of the US presidential election affects the lives of millions of people around the world. So it's probably not surprising that many Europeans are resentful that only Americans will have a say in it. European media are saturated with election coverage that is heavily biased in favor of the Democrats. And, as in past elections, European elites are also demanding the right to help choose the next occupant of the White House. What follows is a brief survey of what some Europeans are saying about the American way of democracy. An editorial in the Brussels-based, center-right De Standaard articulates a view shared by many Europeans:

Where They Stand on Economic Issues Jobs and Income Many Americans have grown anxious that the economy hasn’t lived up to its promise over the past 15 years of creating job growth that provides upward mobility and broadly shared prosperity. Instead, the nation has gone through two recessions marked by bubbles—one in the stock market and the other in housing—that were followed by recoveries in which economic growth returned but job growth lagged. Laying out a vision for how to restore widespread job and income gains is shaping up to be the top priority of the incoming president. Compare the candidates: Clinton vs. Trump on immigration Editor's note: This is the first in a series of stories comparing the candidates' positions on major policy issues. Presidential candidates Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton have taken opposite roads on their quest for immigration reform. Trump calls for mass deportations, migrant bans and a wall to keep away people from coming into the country, while Clinton wants a pathway to citizenship, immigrant integration and protection from deportation. Trump and Clinton both say they favor secure borders, but in every other respect they are at odds over how they’d tackle key immigrant issues. Experts on both sides of the debate cast the candidates’ proposals as radical, arguing Trump is overtly anti-immigrant while Clinton is too lax on policies. Frank Sharry, executive director of America’s Voice, which supports immigrant rights and comprehensive immigration reform, calls Trump "the most hardcore anti-immigrant" presidential candidate in modern American history.

What’s at Stake CLINTON favors raising the federal minimum wage to $12 an hour and providing more tax breaks for working families. She wants the wealthiest Americans to pay higher taxes. She also wants the government to spend more on infrastructure projects like roads and bridges to provide jobs and grow the economy. TRUMP says the U.S. needs to renegotiate its trade deals to make them more beneficial to American companies and workers. He’s also proposed a 45 percent tariff on goods coming into the U.S. from China.

What it is: Collaborative annotation and commenting eReader tool. Learners log into a class (using a class code) and have assignments to collectively read. These assignments can be PDFs, EPUBS, videos, podcasts, websites, etc. Learners click to open threaded annotations. They can tag each other in threads, create hashtags, and engage in real time with each other over a reading. Perusall has an expansive bookstore for textbooks selection and use in a course. Pros: Free. Turns learning and assigned material into a collaborative process. LMS integration (where possible) allows for syncing of grades of annotations to LMS gradebook. Automatic grading off annotations on several customizable dimensions. Cons: Auto grading is sometimes not up to what I would award a student's post. Small learning curve to acclimate to the software. by jamesnb1 Jun 18
