Colleges & Universities Cutting Math & Science

Malcolm A. Kline – The good news may be that colleges and universities are cutting costs by cutting courses. Unfortunately, what they are excising are the courses many outside academe might consider most valuable. “Math majors at Goucher College will soon be a thing of the past,” Christina Tkacik reported in The Baltimore Sun. “Gone, too, will be physics majors, music majors and students in a range of subjects the school is eliminating from its offerings as part of a cost-cutting ‘academic revitalization’ announced Wednesday.” Nor is...

Social Media Censorship—Here Are The Deep Basics

By Jon Rappoport Orchestrated un-creation of the fabric of free speech—this is what we’re seeing. Several of the biggest “conservative/libertarian” figures on the Net—Alex Jones, Dennis Prager, Stefan Molyneux, among others—have recently been banned/censored by Google, Facebook, Twitter, and other social media companies. When you ask why this is happening, one obvious answer pops up right away: These social media corporations are fulfilling desperate pleas from major news outlets, who have been losing audience, in massive chunks, to the likes...

Pentagon resources can’t fund Confucius Institutes on U.S. campuses

Josh Rogin – Concern about Chinese influence operations on American campuses hit a new high this year after officials at Arizona State University bragged about mixing the school’s Pentagon-funded Chinese language programs and its Chinese Communist Party-funded Confucius Institute. Now, all schools may have to choose between Washington or Beijing paying for its students to learn Chinese. Tucked inside the $716 billion John McCain 2019 National Defense Authorization Act that President Donald Trump signed Aug. 13 is a provision...

Poorer pupils far more likely to be in failing schools, finds research

Data shows 9% of poor English children go to an inadequate school against 1% of wealthiest The poorest pupils in England are nine times as likely to attend an inadequate school as the wealthiest pupils, a Labour analysis has revealed. And within some regions inequalities are even more marked, with the most deprived children in the east Midlands 18 times more likely to go to one of the worst performing schools as their most privileged counterparts.

A SECURITY CLEARANCE — NO RITE OF PASSAGE!

“A Security Clearance – No Rite of Passage!” By Donna Garner 8.20.18 Keeping a security clearance is not a  Constitutional right nor a “rite of passage”! The only reason that some high-level political leaders in a previous administration (e.g., Obama’s) are allowed to keep their security clearance is so that they can help the new administration (e.g., Trump’s) during the transition period. That time has long come and gone now, and Pres. Trump is certainly within his purview to revoke Brennan’s security clearance. Any former...

What We Must Do to Get Healthier and Reduce Healthcare Costs

Photo by Jannis Brandt on Unsplash While politicians debate how to fix our increasingly expensive yet ineffective health care system, there seems to be agreement on the following: Health care is consuming an increasing portion of our national economy as the population ages and the huge Baby Boom cohort born between 1946–1964 retires. The U.S. currently spends 18% of GDP (largest in the world) on health care, compared to 11-12% of the country in second place. By 2025 health care will become a fifth of the U.S. economy.U. S. health care is the...

South Africa Heading Toward Communist Disaster, Says Winemaker

By Dan Lyman – An award-winning South African winemaker foresees a potential catastrophe as government steers the country from socialism to a communistic failed state. Josef Dreyer of Raka Wines addressed the developing land expropriation process and the danger South Africa faces if it further cripples private industry and entrepreneurs who are barely propping up a populace heavily dependent on tax dollars being contributed by a precious few. “We are one of the countries with a wide gap between the rich and the poor, where 13 percent of...

Memo About Almost-Chancellor Alberto M. Carvalho

Alberto Carvalho strongly believes that charity begins at home. His home bank, that is.  Passionate as he claimed to be about improving the quality of education of New York City public schools leading up to his appointment as chancellor, there was one consideration that dwarfed this goal in importance. When the hard bargain he drove to secure it proved not hard enough, he withdraw his acceptance of the position and left Mayor DeBlasio in the lurch. Nobody realized that finalization of his devotion to service was contingent on the City...

The Princeton Review Has Laid Off Many Employees. But Revenue Might Not Be Its Only Problem.

By Eric Hoover – The Princeton Review, a major test-preparation and tutoring company, has laid off numerous employees this year as part of a “corporate review and reorganization process.” In a written statement provided to The Chronicle, Sangje Lee, the new chief executive officer, said the company had “eliminated positions and reduced other expenditures” in an attempt to ensure its “financial health.” In a subsequent email, Lee declined to say how many jobs had been cut.
