On this day in 1517, the priest and scholar Martin Luther approaches the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany, and nails a piece of paper to it containing the 95 revolutionary opinions that would begin the Protestant Reformation. 


In his theses, Luther condemned the excesses and corruption of the Roman Catholic Church, especially the papal practice of asking payment—called "indulgences"—for the forgiveness of sins. At the time, a Dominican priest named Johann Tetzel, commissioned by the Archbishop of Mainz and Pope Leo X, was in the midst of a major fundraising campaign in Germany to finance the renovation of St. Peter's Basilica in Rome. Though Prince Frederick III the Wise had banned the sale of indulgences in Wittenberg, many church members traveled to purchase them. When they returned, they showed the pardons they had bought to Luther, claiming they no longer had to repent for their sins...

Carroll Community College Celebrates the Inauguration of the College’s Third President

http://kevindayhoffwestgov-net.blogspot.com/2014/10/carroll-community-college-celebrates.html

Westminster, Md., Oct. 28, 2014—Carroll Community College (Carroll) will celebrate the Inauguration of the college’s third president, Dr. James D. Ball, on Friday, Nov. 7, 2014 in the theater. Invited guests include members of the board of trustees, faculty and staff, elected officials and dignitaries, presidents and emissaries from colleges across Maryland, community supporters, and friends of the college. 

“A college president’s Inauguration is a humbling event; and, it is one of great importance to the college,” said  Ball. “Most importantly, this is a day to celebrate the college, our mission, and our students, faculty and staff. It is a day to reaffirm Carroll’s contributions to enhancing the quality of life in our fair county. I am truly proud and honored to be the president of such an exceptional institution of higher learning.”

The event will be marked by formal greetings from internal and external constituents, musical interludes, a formal installation ceremony and remarks by the president. Additional inaugural events prior to and after the ceremony include a celebration by students, as well as visual arts exhibits, theatrical and musical performances, showcases of student work and other specially-designated events on campus.

Ball became president on July 1, 2014. He has over thirty years of progressively responsible experience in the community college setting, including 18 years as a senior level executive. He has extensive academic and administrative background at Carroll. Ball is the former vice president of Academic and Student Affairs and dean of the faculty at Carroll, a position he held since 1999. His expertise includes academic and student affairs administration, curriculum development, technology planning and integration, faculty and staff development, strategic planning, budget development/administration, facilities planning and development, fundraising, accreditation processes and policy development.

Prior to joining Carroll in 1999, Ball was vice president of student services at Howard Community College in Columbia, Md. He is also a former assistant vice president and dean of instruction at Howard, as well as director of adult and evening services and assistant professor of psychology there. Ball is also a former adjunct professor at the Morgan State University Doctoral Program in Community College Leadership. Ball holds an Ed.D in Higher Education Administration from Virginia Polytechnic and State University and a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies in Higher Education Administration from the same university. He has an M.Ed. in Counseling and Student Services/Psychology and a BS in Education with a minor in psychology from North Texas State University (now University of North Texas).


“I look forward to the challenges and successes that lie ahead for Carroll as higher education continues to evolve and meet the needs of students from all backgrounds and walks of life,” said Ball.

The Heritage Foundation: The Pity Party A Mean-Spirited Diatribe Against Liberal Compassion

The Heritage Foundation invites you to a Book Event t

The Pity Party
A Mean-Spirited Diatribe Against Liberal Compassion

featuring author William Voegeli
Senior Editor, Claremont Review of Books

The finest trick of the devil, Baudelaire once wrote, is to persuade you that he does not exist.  Modern liberalism, being far less devilish, has pulled a lesser, but still effective, trick: It has convinced Americans that conservatives don’t care.  In fact, the left has made “caring” their exclusive prerogative and successfully framed most political debates as pitting compassionate liberals against heartless conservatives.  Along the way, liberals have built a remarkable edifice of government programs that are justified by appeals to citizens’ compassion.

In The Pity Party: A Mean-Spirited Diatribe Against Liberal Compassion, Bill Voegeli offers a scathing critique of the politics of liberal compassion.  Voegeli chronicles how liberal compassion ultimately fails to deliver on its promise to help others, although it never fails to make liberals feel better about themselves.

William Voegeli is a Senior Editor of the Claremont Review of Books, a Visiting Scholar at Claremont McKenna College’s Henry Salvatori Center, and the author of Never Enough: America’s Limitless Welfare State (Encounter Books, 2010).

Why are U.S. officials trash-talking Netanyahu? - The Washington Post:

 October 29 at 9:36 AM Daniel W. Drezner is a professor of international politics at Tufts University and a nonresident senior fellow at the Brookings Institution.

"Two stories broke last night that, combined, indicate that U.S.-Israeli relations have moved just a bit outside the normal contours of the warm bilateral relationship..

First, the Wall Street Journal reports on how the United States appears to be tacitly and not-so-tacitly coordinating with Iran across a range of Greater Middle East issues:"
