Fantastic article +Dennis Yu 
It made me sit back, stare at the wall and ponder... Am I really on the trajectory of potential genius? Am I working hard enough? And not just hard enough, but smart enough...

Today's colleges, if geared towards producing professional certifications and jobs, are really just businesses. If not, they are teaching the humanities, the "nice to have" liberal arts, balanced education that few can afford anymore.

So it's time to hold higher education accountable. And that means measuring some programs by jobs created and others by the purely academic/research ones currently used.

Amazing! So cheap, it's a steal. People are friendly, too.

The folks at the Hopkins StorageMart were friendly and helpful, from the store manager to the maintenance people. They even gave me a ride in the golf cart a couple times from the office straight to my unit. And they drove me to the bathroom, gated entry, and back again, to save me the walk. Not sure how it can get better than this-- I wouldn't have thought I'd look forward to going to my storage place.

Warning-- the front desk forgot to set our wake up call. We called them about it and they never called back. I had our assistant try to reach them, too-- nothing. 3 phone calls-- nothing. Nice room in a nice location-- just don't expect service. The place was packed when we tried to check in at 4 pm. No room for a couple hours. Don't expect Westin-level service. Go elsewhere.

Not sure how this debt collector got my cell phone, but they keep calling me at 6 am and odd hours, waking me up. They're trying to reach someone who used to work with us. And they don't stop calling, even when I tell them. The FTC also has laws saying debt collectors aren't supposed to discuss someone else's debts with others. And there are fines of up to $1,000 for each occurrence. If that's true, these folks owe me about $12,000 so far. They'll probably call me again tomorrow morning at 6 am. The rules also say you can't call before 8 am local time. Funny thing is that I'm not even the one they're trying to reach, even though I keep telling them. I hope the FTC punishes them for this behavior.

Called their phone just now and it rang for 50 rings, no answer. No answering machine either. Also tried to reach them on Facebook. This Google page says they're open, but can't be sure if they are actually open.
