It's always good to introduce science to children.
And, what energy source is without adverse side effects?
This makes disemboweled and plasticized Chinese dissidents look tasteful.
If you like science take a quick look at the TickleMe Plant as now you can grow this animated tropical plant indoors.
The leaves fold and the branches droop when Tickled!
Not to get too off topic, but this sounds eerily similar to EDMC, minus the fact that it ever started out with clients/students needs in mind.
I agree with Tofu: the Catholic Church ( or any other religous objector ) is not denying anyone the right to purchase their own birth control; they are denying the govt's right to force the Religious Insitution to pay for it. No one is saying to remove all contraceptives from store shelves and pharmacy stocks; they are just saying that it is wrong for the government to force the Catholic Church et al to pay for something that goes against their very being.
@pghisacity -- Sure, though I suppose Dailey's argument would be that once all of us proles are unfettered from employer-private insurance, and given cash to buy it ourselves ... the Invisible Hand will provide a solution. (I'm guessing she'd be happy to take care of the "government-involved" side of the equation as well.)
But! I thought you were kidding about the Hello Kitty assault rifle. And you AREN'T.
I think I just found the PERFECT anniversary gift for my wife.
Well, and there's the fact that I can buy a "hello kitty" assault rifle, or a pink breast cancer awareness handgun, or whatever other gun the free-world thinks I should be able to buy, but I can't choose to buy individual health care that covers birth control and maternity without spending hundreds of extra dollars every month. Because we do not have a free system of health-care that responds to what the masses want - we have an employer-driven government-involved health care mess.
Reduction Program = Arranging Deck Chairs.
The layoffs that occured last month, I'm afraid, are only the beginning. There are probably a lot more on the horizon.
I wonder how much of this will get play during this election year. The candidates haven't said anything so far as what to do about higher education in America. I hate to say it but after the housing mess that we've been in over the past four years, I think that student loans are the next big bubble to burst.
A key question - How many NET-NEW employees have been added? According to this, it's unclear how many new jobs are created - http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pittsburgh…
Sweet ... this diploma mill is going DOWN!!!
They should refund the students they ripped off. Once again the exects are shifting all the staff that actually help. This is mindboggling how obvious their scam is now. I hope the government is watching this. Its clear they dont care about students or even educating.
EDMC has plain chutzpah!
The acknowledge that they are recruiter frauds. The net is loaded with examples from their classrooms that demonstrate beyond any doubt that they admit inadequate students, offer inferior instruction, provide only the thinnest possible veneer of an education, and want to brag that they have a new con artist on board. This one wants to take military veterans who may well be qualified to take SAT and GRE exams and enter competitive colleges, only to offer them huge debt, milk the Government's largess, and graduate them with degrees (if they graduate) that are worth nothing and prepare the student for nothing in the workplace.
The Republican majority passed much of HR 2117 recently. The bill was nothing but pork for districts and just opened to doors for further fraud and abuse. You know the party that seeks less government dog chasing tail tale.
The loss of Snowe is important. That she ran from investigations related to McKernan. Hopefully once the candidates are formally selected the media can begin its own investigation. The country deserves to see the inside world of Todd Nelson. Romney, Snowe, and Mckernan.
As for the big time military guy coming on board. Don't take it too seriously. He, after all is a big time military guy. That is sort of synonymous with lack of credibility among ranks.
Charlotte Murphy is one amazing girl. I hope we will be seeing more of her leadership in the days to come.
@ Stuart Strickland --
I've deleted the comment in question, since it shows all the signs of sock puppetry.
Lovely. Someone masquerading as me (2nd comment, above). As anyone who knows me knows, I am not a hater of Port Authority, but neither am I a sycophant. My 2/29 testimony is on my blog (http://bus15237.blogspot.com/2012/02/to-pa…). My letter to a known PAT hater, Rep. Mike Turzai (R-28, Bradford Woods, though his office is in McCandless) is also public (http://bus15237.blogspot.com/2012/02/my-le…).
I'm in agreement with PennAve refugee. I think that Obama and Holder were holding the charges against EMDC/McKernan/Snowe for an "October Suprise". I think Snowe knows this and she knows it would probably cost her the election and tarnish her legacy. She's quitting "gracefully" while she can.
It's also interesting to note that on Tuesday U.S. Senator Olympia Snowe (R-Maine) announced that she will be retiring after this current term in the Senate rather than run again. For those of you that may not be aware, Snowe is married to John McKernan, a former governor of Maine, who is now Chairman of the Board of Directors for EDMC. According to an article published by politico.com last May, Snowe and McKernan cleared anywhere between $6 and $12 million dollars in assets from EDMC, either through stock or stock options since 1999, according to financial disclosure forms that Snowe filed in 2009.
Methinks that Snowe's opponents would bring up this gem if she had decided to run for another term. Obviously she couldn't stand the heat and had to get out of the kitchen.
I like the plan to undo the Gasoline Tax Cap. That would cause Gas prices to rise about 15%. This money would then be used by Transit Authority for them to waste. Then more people would be forced to ride the buses and PAT would need even more money and cut service more.
If we do nothing and let PAT fail then we can hire Transit Companies to do the work for less money. They would not be stealing our dollars like PAT.
If u think transit n teachers got it bad . . .
