The world isn’t being destroyed by democrats or republicans, red or blue, liberal or conservative, religious or atheist — the world is being destroyed by one side believing the other side is destroying the world. The world is being hurt and damaged by one group of people believing they’re truly better people than the others who think differently. The world officially ends when we let our beliefs conquer love. We must not let this happen.
I’m just sayin’
Ok. Here’s the thing. If you’re a cop, and the only way you can stop an unarmed person is to shoot him (repeatedly) dead, then either (a) you’re a poor shot, (b) you aren’t trained in non-lethal techniques, or (c) you’re not very brave. Either one should disqualify someone from working in law enforcement. IMO.
Our heads hang in shame when we hear about rapes. Why can’t we prevent this? When a daughter steps out, parents demand to know where she’s going. But when a son returns home, does anyone dare ask where he is coming from? He might have been with the wrong people, doing wrong things. After all, a person raping is someone’s son. Why don’t parents apply the same yardstick of good behaviour for their sons as for their daughters?
This summer, two economists published a paper assessing the impact of an anti-grade-inflation policy that Wellesley adopted in 2004. Professors were not allowed to let the class average exceed a B+ for intro and intermediate courses.
These were the grade differences by department before they kicked off the policy.
Which department was the toughest grader? Astronomy
It’s nice to see that political science is about at the mean.
