app only pulls bootstrap css if I change stylesheet_link_tag. And javascript also not working

1) CSS issue: In order for the bootstrap stylesheet to be applied to my application I had to change the stylesheet_link_tag to 'bootstrap' in application.html.erb. When I download the project files they have it set as "application". I tried to re-download the project files at various stages and it still only works if I change it to the bootstrap css file and even so it doesn't look exactly the same (No horizontal rule between status updates)

2)JavaScript/CoffeeScript issue: The interactive elements are not showing up on my page. I tried using console.log method and nothing prints to the screen. I tried to re-download the project files and start again and it is still not working.

any thoughts?
