4/10    Is it just me, or it seems really ironic that a bunch of iconic
        monopolists in the Guilded Age funded a bunch of academic institutions
        through their philanthropies and those institutions later on produced
        famous academics that are highly critical of their benefactors
        and attack the ideals on which those monopolists based their
        philosophy on?

10/1    It costs $500,000 USD to rape a child:
        http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lanow/2009/10/roman-polanski-paid-samantha-geimer-601583-in-civil-settlement-of-sexual-assault.html
        \_ "Geimer, now a mother of four, has said repeatedly and publicly
           that she thinks Polanski was treated unfairly and expressed a desire
           for the case to be resolved without prison time."
           So she thinks he didn't commit a crime but she wants him to pay her?

        UCLA is ranked above Berkeley. UCSD is ranked above
        Berkeley. Irvine is ranked one below Berkeley.
        Berkeley has seriously gone done in the past
        two decades. I'm not surprised.

           was on both sides of the ball. Cal couldn't even put up a TD.

9/23    I'm in grad school part time, and the professor I was trying to get
        to advise me just sent me "What you suggest (remote, part-time, topic
        formulation) doesn't fit my advising style..."  Does anyone know
        what "topic formulation" might mean in this context?  I come with
        funding from work, but the topics I can choose are somewhat limited.
        Could be a reference to that...

2/8     Why does UC suck so hard? I did undergrad at UCB and I hated it.
        Professors couldn't teach, class workload was high, and the system
        was designed to "weed out" students and demoralize them rather
        than teach and encourage them. I always got lower grades than I
        deserved for the amount of work I put in. I don't know if this was
        because of the curve which insists that 50% of students should get

Unified Crime Report identified 2,696 violent crime incidents and 87,160 property crime incidents on and around college campuses in 2011. We ranked the most dangerous colleges by averaging FBI crime data per capita from 2008 to 2011 for schools with enrollment over 10,000. Schools were ranked based on a combination of violent crime rank and property crime rank, with violent crime weighted four times higher. Click here to see the most dangerous colleges > NOTE: Some people have objected to our use of FBI data because not all schools participate in the survey and some schools are more aggressive than others in reporting crime in neighboring noncampus areas. In response to criticism, we prepared an alternate list based on on-campus crimes tracked for the Clery Act. We are happy to report, however, that this alternate ranking produced remarkably similar results -- suggesting that both lists are good at identifying dangerous colleges. For instance, two schools which objected vocally to our original list -- UCLA and UC-Riverside -- were also named among the most dangerous colleges based on this new data set. We have included responses submitted by various schools on their respective slides. You are logged into Facebook * Social: | * Your Activity | These articles have been shared on your timeline.
