dilapidated and is demolishedIt’ll be emotional to see the pieces in use again he saidKjelland was drawn to Skjeberg several years ago because it felt familiar He said he liked the rural setting and the welcoming congregation—it instantly felt like home"It’s more of a family it’s just a closer church" he said "The people are more supportive"After word spread about Skjeberg’s fire Heine said members from now-closed rural churches reached out to offer furnishingsThe pews will come from Lankin the Lakota Church of Christ donated kitchen supplies and a church in Sykeston gave tables and chairs for the dining hall"They’re excited because part of their church will live on with us and what else are you going to do with those items" Heine said "And we’re excited because this way we can put all our money into the building"While other rural churches have closed Heine said Skjeberg is still growing—even after the fire Since March they’ve added about 14 members to their roughly 100-person congregationShe said the tightly knit congregation makes Skjeberg feel like home—it’s why people keep coming back"We’re an active church you don’t just come here on Sunday and that’s it"

footballs used by the New England Patriots in this year’s AFC Championship victory over the Indianapolis ColtsWhile no verdict has been reached regarding Deflategate some commentators have called for the Patriots’ expulsion from the Super Bowl or the firing of head coach Bill BelichickOther former and current NFL quarterbacks have addressed the common practice of altering footballs Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said he prefers over-inflated footballs Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Brad Johnson said he paid $7500 for someone to rough up the footballs used in Super Bowl XXXVIIBut underneath the football debate lies a distaste for cheating for manyThere have been congressional hearings regarding steroid use in baseball Collegiate athletic programs have come under fire for letting athletes take fake classes A man was recently ejected from the annual wing bowl for stuffing uneaten wings into a fanny packAccording to Jack Weinstein UND professor of philosophy and director of the Institute for Philosophy and Public Life the important question is not whether cheating is bad"The interesting question is not ‘Is cheating wrong’ but rather ‘Why is cheating wrong and ‘What constitutes cheating’" Weinstein saidCheat sheet to cheatingAt face value cheating could be considered doing something to gain an unfair advantage but Weinstein said this is only partially accurateHe referenced various inequalities that while providing unfair advantages in academics or athletics aren’t considered cheating"There are things that in the US that we think are fair game" he said "There are natural advantages and unfair advantages that we think are okay"According to Weinstein the US’s system of capitalism leads to differences in the quality of public schools While affluent suburbs have more tax money to pump into schools poorer inner city or rural schools often have significantly fewer resources he said While this could be considered unfair it generally isn’t considered cheatingIn the same way Weinstein said we hold nothing against Michael Phelps for having "flipper-like feet" though we would criticize athletes who gain physical advantages through steroids French scientist Mathieu Bouville who has done research in both Singapore and at the University of Cambridge explained other types of permissible yet unfair advantages specifically in academics in his essay "Why is Cheating Wrong""Picture a student who has an essay proofread by his parents or a personal tutor; He will get a better grade than a student of equal intelligence and talent who cannot receive or afford any such help" Bouville wrote "This is an unfair advantage but one would not call it cheating"Crossing the lineWhile "cheaters only cheat themselves" has long been a cliche Weinstein has a deeper — and more philosophically concerning — explanation for the issue with cheating"The two most important things about cheating are that it breaks an established rule that people know about and it violates the spirit of the game or the spirit of the activity" Weinstein saidAs Weinstein explained it cheating betrays the infrastructure of what has been collectively established to promote fairness While inequality in money background or body type already cause certain inequalities in society rules help limit the extent to which differences exacerbate unfairnessIn sports the rules help maintain the human vs human competition that gives sports their appeal"What makes sports worthwhile" Weinstein said "They push the boundaries of human excellence They show us what we can do as human beings when we commit to one very specific task that combines our bodies and minds our physicality and our judgment"But when something like a deflated football comes into play that all changes"Then they’re no longer about human excellence" he said "They’re about technological excellence and that’s why there has to be a fair playing field"Coincidentally technological advantages have also played into cheating in the classroom said Dean Opp who has taught at Red River High School for more than 25 yearsHe said teachers used to have to watch out for note passing but cell phones and smartphones have made it easier to snap photos of tests and answers and quickly broadcast them around a classroom or schoolHowever technology has also helped cut down on cheating through software programs that help generate original tests and detect copy-and-pasted content in essays Opp saidWhether in sports or academics Weinstein reduced the essence of cheating down to one destructive quality: eliminating the internal good of whatever you’re doing"Every practice has an internal good: a goal made possible by its own rules" he said "If you cheat this internal good is no longer achievable If you’re cheating as a doctor you’re no longer bringing about health you’re making yourself rich You’re not a doctor anymore you’re a business person"In the case of the Patriots allegedly deflating the footballs Weinstein said it takes away the possibility of being the best"Cheating will always prevent them from being the best" Weinstein said "It might not prevent them from winning the Super Bowl but it might prevent them from being the best"It was a tumultuous day for the White House Thursday beginning with a top aide stoking the conflicts of interest fires and ending with new reports of

J Miller at [email protected] my grandfather Richard Heffner published a collection of pivotal documents from United States history in 1952 Twitter was not yet born and television was in its pre-soundbite infancy No such anthology existed and Google was not available for instant historical knowledge This summer the tenth edition of A Documentary History of the United States was published into a very different world in need of safeguarding the truth Considering documents that make up American history all in one place can teach far more than even the most important individual artifact The book shows the regression and evolution of citizenship in the United States As constitutional interpretations matured to new standards of human rights and morality Americans sought to fulfill the Declaration of Independences promise of life liberty and the pursuit of happiness for all Americans Notable historic documents include the Dred Scott v Sandford Supreme Court decision which reaffirmed the legality of slavery but also Abraham Lincolns Emancipation Proclamation declaring a new commitment to freedom Martin Luther Kings letter from a Birmingham Jail arguing for equality through nonviolent civil disobedience and the Brown v Board of Education decision desegregating American schools These reinterpretations are proof that we can slowly perfect the union History published in emerging media is part of that story For the last edition my grandfather asked me to consider new formats and I proposed television After all the archives have been reduced from the pantheon of literature and books to essays and pamphlets to speeches and op-eds We decided to include television interview transcripts of Vice President Cheney defending the Iraq invasion in a medium decisive to the Administration’s war prosecution and documentation of its blowback Now "Populists Revolt…Democracy Under Duress" the newest chapter in the newest edition explores the Trump presidency and digital age The added documents include Congressional testimony on cyber espionage in which social media executives admitted to breaking the law by accepting undisclosed foreign advertisers during the 2016 campaign posts by Mark Zuckerberg acknowledging the spread of disinformation on Facebook after dismissing the problem Senator Bernie Sanders New Hampshire Primary victory speech deriding American economic injustice and Senator Jeff Flakes farewell address condemning Donald Trumps "casual undermining of our democratic norms and ideals" But to update the book for the current era we also had to grapple with the social and anti-social media that have transformed our nations discourse And at a time when history is being distorted and disinformation can spread with the swipe of a finger we wanted to present the documents word for word just as the speakers authors and now tweeters intended Get your history fix in one place: sign up for the weekly TIME History newsletter So the question became: Do we publish tweets that are themselves very real but spew untruths or do we omit artifacts that have failed to uphold facts The answer was they must be included to document Donald Trumps departure from "presidential" tone his exploitation of free media before and after the election and how we as citizens are subjected to his tweets with seemingly no control over the norms through which he or Twitter operates Examples include his unprecedented criticism of the press as "enemy of the people" and his vitriolic attacks on the rule of law political opponents and citizens Twitter is increasingly the flawed operating system of our consciousness This moment in history has accompanied a vast proliferation of misinformation amid the degradation of public discourse The historical record deserves more than tweets it requires nuance and context and the architecture integrity and rigor of political arguments are integral to the preservation of a Republic Alas true or false tweets are the headlines that capture our attention and imagination Linguist George Lakoff has proposed a way to deal with this: we must make "truth sandwiches" with reality on either side in an age when Twitter is more conducive to lies The "truth sandwich" can help us deal with including these tweets in the book but the need for it also raises questions about what comes next So far it appears there are few candidates with the political moxie to take on Trump in his own favorite medium But if anyone hopes to beat him in the next election fighting fire with fire will be necessary As Trump tests democratic norms opponents must cultivate their own Twitter pulpits We dont know if the 140-280 character postings will be the only game in town at that time But a winning candidate 2020 will have to generate and own his or her own cultural artifact for the moment A Hope poster A MAGA Hat Whats next Social media is no small force behind the present age of unreason and disharmony It is my hope that the tweets included in the new edition of the book are the first and final ones to be included That an American statesperson will emerge who turns to a different medium or at least a new way of using this one and revives the better angels of our discourse I think of how JFK opened a September 1960 exchange with Vice President Nixon: In the election of 1860 Abraham Lincoln said the question was whether this nation could exist half-slave or half-free In the election of 1960 and with the world around us the question is whether the world will exist half-slave or half-free whether it will move in the direction of freedom in the direction of the road that we are taking or whether it will move in the direction of slavery I think it will depend in great measure upon what we do here in the United States on the kind of society that we build on the kind of strength that we maintain The venue for Kennedys words was the first-ever televised presidential debate In retrospect that event and the very fact that it appeared on television changed history Kennedy knew how to speak compellingly to the camera and Nixon did not Trump mastered Twitter But if the American story shows us anything its that a new way of making history is always around the corner Lets hope whatever it is it restores the depth of meaning and shared values we once embraced Signet Classics Alexander Heffner is the
