A thoughtful read from a few years back in why STEM does not need special consideration in education.

Sure, I don't mind advocacy. What is odd is the specific imbalance in media (including social media) representation and political speech/funding.

It is reminiscent of the promise of Computer Science in the late 90s followed by the massloads of unemployed programmers in the early 2000s.

The seemingly artificially enhanced promotion makes me think that there is an industry push by "job creators" rather than a genuine need to encourage STEM degrees.

I'm pretty sure he's rebranded what we Christians call the "prosperity gospel". Something along the lines of "Just follow my 12-step program and you'll be as rich as Joseph or Job!"

I regret to inform you that I will be leaving your community due to Spam.

Your community only feeds me posts from Spamcatcher anymore. What is the point of catching Spam if you just disseminate them to your members anyway?

If you fix this policy I would be happy to come back, but until then, goodbye.

sadly from what I know... most felons are for pot... I myself because I took (more than I should of) responsibility for my actions now 19 years ago still find it difficult to secure long term meaningful employment.  Thankfully I acquired the knowledge to launch my own small business but it took many years and an extreme amount of determination... still unrewarded fully because I am a pot felon.

Even though an overseas national defense award earned veteran I have never been permitted to vote my entire adult life.  I found I could apply for a state pardon and have been waiting in line to be seen by the pardon board for over 2 years.  My pardon is for my admission that I would smoke pot with any others that I knew already did.  

Since I was unwilling to tell on a friend to get off of the pot possession charge (within a few months of being honorably discharged) it was assumed I must be a drug dealer.  My misdemeanor offense due to my admission of passing joints to friends created my "intent to distribute" charge and my obscene uphill battle ever since.

We want "bums" to get jobs instead of resorting to black market dealings but once wearing the scarlet letter from drug charges your employment outlook is poor at best.

To the few people I follow. I am cleaning out my followers list.

I have grown very tired of political discourse as I feel it has degraded from intellectual discourse (if that is ever what it was) to simply crazy ravings, and the people who can't differentiate these ravings from valid logic.

So if I suddenly drop off your radar don't be surprised. You may still + me in the event you want a response, and you may comment here if you want me to keep you, but most of my non-family followers I will be removing as part of circle cleaning.

I think G+ is worse for the loss of your always-reasoned comments, +Christopher Hannigan, but I certainly understand the move.
 
It is concerning: the lack of understanding of core concepts by the chairman of a college, let alone a PhD in Economics.

How a man comes to chair a department when he seems to ignore basic business/economic principles in favor of cherry-picked correlations is beyond me.
 
"...while his election to the Congress will be bad for the county, it may well be good for students at Randolph-Macon. At least the chairman of their economics department won’t be an utter ignoramus."
Leaving aside his characterization of sub-Saharan Africans as less than productive, the economics professor who bumped the House majority leader from his post proves himself economically illiterate.

Gender wage gap? What is the source for your information? Is it the 2009 U.S.Census Bureau information which is found here http://www.census.gov/prod/2010pubs/p60-238.pdf which includes the raw female-to-male income ratio of 0.77?


If so, you should read the Department of Labor report here: http://consad.com/content/reports/Gender%20Wage%20Gap%20Final%20Report.pdf ?


If you don't want to read the whole thing, just read the Foreword, where it explains the ACTUAL wage gap is between 4.8 and 7.1 percent and says "the raw wage gap continues to be used in misleading ways to advance public policy agendas without fully explaining the reasoning behind the gap."


There is more in the Foreward, but frankly your omission of recent statistical analysis by the Department of Labor to declare that there is a gender wage gap and that it is 77% appears technically true in the way you phrase it, but it is terribly misleading.

Midnight Oil is NOT an oil company!
This is a slaughterhouse. Sells local grass-fed beef for very good prices. There is no storefront and it is not pleasant, but if you want quality beef at low prices this is the place to go.
