The difference between the approach by Gillibrand and the version that prevailed is how much authority Congress wrested from commanders. bit.ly/31wrPtM
Gillibrand, in a statement, blasted House and Senate negotiators for gutting her proposal, which had bipartisan support. "This disregards the calls of service members, veterans and survivors who have fought for an impartial and independent military justice system," she said.
The measure, however, is not as comprehensive as one championed by Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand. Her proposal would have gone further in restricting the authority of commanders to prosecute a range of offenses and created teams of independent military prosecutors.
"Today is the culmination of years of advocacy from military sexual assault survivors, their families and supporters," said Don Christensen, president of Protect Our Defenders, calling the provisions "the most transformative military justice reforms in our nation’s history."
The measure would task independent military lawyers with prosecuting sexual assault cases. That would remove the authority that commanders, who are typically not lawyers, have in making decisions on charging and trying their own troops.

"Now in terms of the specifics, we would prefer to communicate that directly to the Russians, to not negotiate in public, to not telegraph our punches, but we are laying out for the Russians in some detail the types of measures that we have in mind."
"I will look you in the eye and tell you as President Biden looked President Putin in the eye and told him today that things we did not do in 2014, we are prepared to do now," said National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan.
"[President Biden] also told President Putin there's another option: de-escalation and diplomacy," Sullivan said. usatoday.com/story/news/pol…
He continued: "We would provide additional defensive material to the Ukrainians — above and beyond that which we are already providing. And we would fortify our NATO allies on the Eastern flank with additional capabilities in response to such an escalation."
"He told President Putin directly that if Russia further invades Ukraine, the United States and our European allies would respond with strong economic measures," Sullivan said.

Advocates say changing math class — not the subject itself — is the way to catch them up. bit.ly/3GmULD1
The pandemic has exacerbated inequities in math, with students in predominantly Black schools losing about two more months of math learning in 2020-21 compared with students attending white-majority schools. bit.ly/3GmULD1
But traditionalists who shun the new approach say it effectively dumbs down math education. They say pure math inquiry should be neutral of politics. And students gifted in math should be allowed to advance faster than their peers. bit.ly/3GmULD1
Educators hope the shift will help underrepresented students become interested and successful in high-level math classes. They say early trials don’t slow high-achieving students, with promising results for kids of color. bit.ly/3GmULD1
Some new approaches to math learning include customizing lessons to students' cultural interests and collapsing math "tracks," often the gateway to Calculus for gifted students. bit.ly/3GmULD1
In an effort to promote equity and access for kids of color, girls and low-income students, many math teachers are shifting toward inclusive instruction. It’s controversial. 🧵 bit.ly/3rKBAin8

The events of that day, dubbed "a date which will live in infamy" by then-President Franklin D. Roosevelt, launched America's involvement in World War II, beginning decades of growing global U.S. influence.
When hundreds of Japanese planes bombed American service members and civilians on U.S. soil on Dec. 7, 1941 – killing more than 2,400 – America was an "isolated, quiet, withdrawn" nation said Craig Nelson, author of the 2016 book "Pearl Harbor: From Infamy to Greatness."
