  • Your New Scoop Site

    Welcome to Scoop!

    To help you figure things out, there is a Scoop Admin Guide which can hopefully answer most of your questions.

    Some tips:

    • Most of the layout is changed in "Blocks", found in the admin tools menu
    • Features can be turned on and off, and configured, in "Site Controls" in the admin tools menu
    • Stories have an "edit" link right beside the "Full Story" link on an index page, and right beside the "Post a Comment" link on the full story page. They can also be edited by clicking the story title in the "Story List" admin tool
    • Boxes are what allow you to write new features for Scoop; they require a knowledge of the perl programming language to work with effectively, although you can often make small changes without knowing much perl. If you would like a feature added but cannot program it yourself, ScoopHost does custom Scoop programming as one of its services.
    • If you aren't sure where to look for a particular feature or piece of display, try the "Search Admin Tools" link in the admin tools menu.

    For support, questions, and general help with Scoop, email support@scoophost.com

    ScoopHost.com is currently running Scoop version Undeterminable from .

    We can help them fight the 'haters', right?

    No Dan, you cannot give these guys any rope.  You don't dare arm them with moral support, or self flagellating on behalf of the Republicans who you say are stepping over the line.

    They just take it and run with it.

    This release just came out:

    MAPSA Expresses Outrage After Anti-School-Choice Group Links Charter Schools to the Ku Klux Klan

    LANSING, Michigan (January 3, 2012) - The Michigan Association of Public School Academies expressed outrage today after an anti-school-choice group in Michigan used its Facebook page to link charter schools to the Ku Klux Klan.

    Michigan Parents for Schools, an Ann Arbor-based group headed by Executive Director Steven Norton, put a link on its Facebook page on Sunday to an article from the Knights of the KKK's official Web page. The KKK article carried the headline "Segregated Charter Schools Evoke Separate But Equal Era in U.S.," and tried to advance the discredited claim that charter schools promote segregation. The Michigan group's Facebook page also carried a retweet that said "KKK supports charters b/c they further segregation."

    We Need a Hand That Will Beat the Race Card

    Political Agenda with Danian Michael

    I don't know if you are familiar with the television series, "Star Trek: The Next Generation," but one of its episodes provides an interesting illustration. In it, the crew encounters a hostile and advanced alien race called the Borg.  One of their amazing abilities is to adapt to the weapons used against them.  When they attack our heroes on the Starship Enterprise, the crew is able to kill just two of the Borg. They were not able to kill three, because by then the Borg had adapted to their weapons.  What they did was both amazing and easily anticipated: the Enterprise crew stopped firing! Since their weapons no longer had any effect, why should they continue to fire?

    Let's leave that analogy for a moment and consider another one (I will reveal what that particular story of the Enterprise crew and their encounter with the Borg is analogous to shortly).  It's eight in the afternoon and you are about to have dinner with your family. All of a sudden the phone rings and intrudes on your privacy; the caller identification is displaying, "Caller Unknown," and immediately you think to yourself, "don't they know people have Caller ID and that their telemarketing won't work?" But the world of telemarketing plays the averages; if one person out of every twenty they call commit to using their services then those nineteen busy signals, answering machines, and rejections were worth it for them. It is a fact that telemarketing works, and that is why it continues. Presidential candidates don't spend millions on phone banks and directory listings for fun. I myself worked the phone banks for President Bush when he was running for re-election in 2004 and I was able to make a difference... Bush won.
