It seems that the Government received a warning in 2011 that changes to student numbers would result to problems in university and college admission, Tim Moynihan reports for The Independent, citing documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Act by Times Higher Education.
For the cycle years 2011 to 2012, around 620,000 aspiring students submitted their applications, along with other papers like personal statement, to the Universities and Colleges Admission Service or UCAS, hoping to be accepted by their chosen higher education schools. Choosing a university or college is easier... Read More
I was recently talking with one of our nation’s youth (19 years old) when the subject of politics came up, that dreaded word which has sparked many heated debates, especially lately. We were about ten seconds into the conversation when he quickly said, “I don’t like that Romney guy.”
I said, “Really, why not?”
“Because he’s rich.”
Taken back a little, I then asked, “What’s wrong with being rich? Wouldn’t you like to be rich someday?”
“Then, why don’t you like Mitt Romney?”
“Because he was given his money, his daddy started him... Read More
As Mitt Romney becomes increasingly the caricature of plutocratic indifference and the party as a whole is splashed in the muddy wake, the question is worth asking; how did we get here? The evidence points to two factors:
1). The opinion held by the majority of our highest judiciary that money equals speech.
2). The obstructionist spirit among Republican legislators that those whose money is spent to skew public opinion ought not to be subject to the economic consequences of public opinion.
If we can't keep money from exerting influence upon the actions of our elected... Read More
The basic principal behind the American Dream was "equal opportunity for all and privilege for none." The opportunity for upward mobility, without the boot of feudal lords upon our necks. This could all change next year. In late 2011 Mitt Romney revealed how he would facilitate the massive wealth transfer to our would-be lords:
"Don’t try to stop the foreclosure process. Let it run its course and hit the bottom. Allow investors to buy homes, put renters in them, fix the homes, and let it turn around and come back up."
Romney's tax plan helps this along, as well as working... Read More
I wasn’t able to watch the DNC last week, at least not in its entirety. But, that was okay because I knew I couldn't stomach it, and I was right after reading the President’s speech and seeing excerpts from such speakers as Nancy Pelosi, VP Biden, and the big dog, the one and only, the man with the extra-long pointed finger saying, “He didn’t do that,” the Democrats answer to God almighty, the miracle, Bubba himself, Bill Clinton. Now, Clinton gave a good speech, making his case for his policies. But, news flash to all who will listen: Barack Obama is no Bill Clinton. It was all quite the spectacle... Read More
Five thousand were killed in Syria
In August alone.
Assad, their president and an optometrist, is in love with his wife
And goes shopping to make her happy
A UK university still call to boycott Israel.
Assad does not live in the UK any more.
The Arab world blames Israel
They must have planned it all along

To head the Human Right Commission.
Barbara, my neighbor, is truly upset
Her favorite chocolate... Read More
Perhaps one should agree after the castigation by the Indian Supreme Court on the reckless and irresponsible live coverage of the anti-terrorist operations of Indian Security forces in the 26/11 terrorist attack at Mumbai Air port in 2008, by some Television News Channels repeatedly telecasting the operational movements of the Indian anti-terrorist forces so as to be watched by every one including the international terrorists across the world, in their live converage.
While confirming the capital punishment awarded by the Indian Lower Courts to the Ajmal Kasab a Pakistan based terrorist,... Read More
