links for 2010-11-24

  • Quote:"I, who have no name, no opinions, and no style, have written so many papers at this point, including legal briefs, military-strategy assessments, poems, lab reports, and, yes, even papers on academic integrity, that it's hard to determine which course of study is most infested with cheating. But I'd say education is the worst. I've written papers for students in elementary-education programs, special-education majors, and ESL-training courses. I've written lesson plans for aspiring high-school teachers, and I've synthesized reports from notes that customers have taken during classroom observations. I've written essays for those studying to become school administrators, and I've completed theses for those on course to become principals. In the enormous conspiracy that is student cheating, the frontline intelligence community is infiltrated by double agents. (Future educators of America, I know who you are.)

    // This is a wonderful piece.

  • // The stupid part of sustainable development is that it is actually happening naturally. People are moving from rural areas to cities and suburbs. This has emptied huge areas of the midwest, especailly in Nodak/SoDak/Kansas/Nebraska. Government action wasn't needed at all.
  • Quote:"However, not everyone agrees that Ford’s in-car technology is beneficial to drivers.

    "Ford may say it's hands-free, but it’s certainly not risk-free," said Robert Sinclair Jr., manager of media relations for the auto club AAA New York. "The distractions that do exist are very mentally distracting, especially when it comes to checking social networking sites. We find all of this very disturbing."

    Sinclair said he believes engaging in social media sites while on the road demands significantly more concentration than a phone call.

    // There is a lot of good data on this. However, it needs to be remembered that talk radio and conversations with passengers are just as distracting.

  • // Obviously, conservatives are happier, volunteer more and give more to charity because they are stupid.
  • // Why don't people understand. If the terrorists can't get the bombs to the crowded planes, trains, boats or courthouses, they will blow up the crowds in line to get into such places. In fact, they may forgo these hard targest and switch to coffee shops. If anything, we should encourage the terrorists to beleive there are holes in airport security, so they keep their focus on the hard targets and not the coffee shops.
