3/5     Are scholarships that are offered to certain racial groups
        legal? If you open up an offer such as this to the public,
        shouldn't it be made available to everyone?
        \_ Private scholarships can be given to whoever they want.  You have
           a constitutionally-protected right to be a racist.
        \_ Yes if it's not for whites.
           \- there was an east coast school that had a white only scholarship
              but it was a disingenuous thing to either get into court or
              just get coverage. --psb
              \_ anything that doesn't fit your worldview is just a stunt,
                 huh?  how very open minded of you.
                 \_ That what they say they are trying to do - get
                    people to think about race-based scholarships. -!psb
           \_ There are a couple tiny funds run by white supremacist orgs.
                    \- it wasnt a stunt, it was a calculated decision.
                       unclear whether the reason was publicity or legal
                       standing, but the persons setting up the scholarship
                       didnt really even deny that. --psb
                       \_ let's grant for a moment that it was a stunt, why do
                          you think they felt this stunt was necessary?  is it
                          simply that they are just hateful racist or is there
                          something more to it.
                          \_ it is likely that they are trying to convince
                             themselves that whites are the oppressed race,
                             despite all evidence to the contrary.

5/8     UC to raise fees to 18k a year or more:
        A report released in April by the UC faculty Academic Senate says
        the university has not recovered from the budget cuts earlier in the
        decade and that the governor's latest 10 percent cut to its budget
        will be devastating and force the university to rely more heavily on

        I'm making more than my professors! HAHAHA! Proof that academia
        is for suckers.
        \_ As I recall, CS professors make a LOT more than that.  The
           100s of useless English PhDs are throwing off the numbers.
           \_ Indeed.  I know physics profs at top, well-funded research

10/27   Are you worried that scammers will pose as job recruiters to
        steal your identity or your money?
        \_ If a scammer is tech savvy enough or is working with enough tech
           savvy people to convince me it's a real job application situation,
           he deserves my money.  OBTW, there has been at least one similar
           scam with a scholarship application.
