Context of American Racism” by Jenny Greeman for PAF 9100 Introduction to Public Affairs, Baruch College, which I have tried to transform from a Source to a Story by "​plagiarising"​ her paper, putting her verbs in the past, and imagining a "​historical"​ context. The bulk (80%) of what you will read below is copy/pasted directly from Jenny with minor alterations. It didn't take long. Try it on your own papers.
  
 //Thanks Jen for this stimulating and hopeful analysis. Let’s use it as a teaching moment about how we transform Sources into Stories. By Stories we should think about newspapers stories, remembering that “today'​s newspaper is tomorrow’s history.” In my day as a high school editor, stories were supposed to have normally in their lead answers to the four W questions: Who? When? Why? Where? Plus: How? The Wiki category under which we want to present the story: HOW? Also, what’s the takeaway point of the story for historians? Let’s say: “Brutal racist cops can be humanized through exposure to the arts and psychological training.” Or rather, in the past tense, "How brutal racist cops were humanized through exposure to the arts...."​ //Thanks Jen for this stimulating and hopeful analysis.

 Between 2015 and 2020, large-scale implementation of high-efficiency thin film photovoltaics,​ low-cost capture of ocean currents, and high-elevation tapping of wind energy begins to rapidly decarbonize global energy supplies, radically undermining the Military Industrial Complex (MIC) because of the growing availability of very low-cost clean energy, which requires virtually no rare strategic metals.
