Why Los Angelites Need Ryan Seacrest.

By wolviela, published on Nov 3, 2008

...request for this series as well.

I think that because he has had both political parties on his show, the younger listeners have gotten more revved up about this election and that's is what we need.

Some of my readers may wonder what crack I'm smoking, but hey in the state of things today, we need a little fun, stupid, quirky and best of all free entertainment and perhaps a little education and that's what Ryan Seacrest provide us Los Angelites (ack!!! I've sucumbed) between the hours of 5am-9am.

And in the words of Ryan Seacrest.... You know I love you.

Poli Sci For 2nd Graders

By CCNY, published on Oct 29, 2008

... country goes into a tizzy at the mere thought of it, but somehow, this is supposed tobe benign. I'm not buying it, or going gentle into the night on this. I'm beginning to feel a little less sheepish, though I'm sure that playground whispers may follow from other parents if they find out.

Indoctrination is a fact of life, especiallyat institutions of higher education across the country, and I want to make sure thatmy son'sschool treats the comingelection in an even-handed way and shows the kids both sides of the story, instead of just the sideof the storythey think should be told.

On-line Medical Education For Doctors

By wolviela, published on Sep 27, 2008

...the hours of 12pm-1pm, only to say they are out to lunch? Well my good people it's not to say that they mindlessly stuffing their face.

What you probably didn't know is that after medical school your trusty doctors are required to have a certain number of hours of continuing medical education to retain their license to practice medicine.

A lot of traditional hospitals offer these courses over the lunch hour. But what happens if a doctor is in surgery all day or they simply have another matter to attend too?

Hopsitals are increasingly accomodating these needs and... (more)

Not Scared Of Sarah

By AmyO, published on Sep 4, 2008

...is unpatriotic. She also attacked Barack Obama’s wife after he has very graciously said this week with the revelation that Palin’s daughter is pregnant, that family is off limits. It would have been so easy for the Democrats to say how ironic it is that Republicans preach abstinence only education and then provide a prime example that it doesn’t work. But they did not, preferring to instead let Palin dig her own grave.

And why not talk about Flip-Flops, as Republicans so love to do with Democrats. According to a fact check article from the Associated Press, she only opposed... (more)

Oh Grow Up Already!

By D. E. Carson, published on Sep 1, 2008

...violence or riot.  There is no reason ever to deprive one of life or personal property when he or she is expressing a political view unless that expression extends to cause grievous harm or damage to another or another’s property.  For those of you educated in America’s state sanctioned education system; that means if you don’t agree with someone’s political views, you may not beat the crap out of him or her no matter how wrong or stupid you may think that person is.

The people who are protesting the war want to be heard – that is understood loud and clear.  But when you ... (more)

The Greatest Week In Comedy

By D. E. Carson, published on Aug 31, 2008

...promised to eradicate government programs that were no longer working as a means of saving money.  Does this mean he plans to shut down the postal service as well?  Will his spending cuts include such moronic government departments and agencies like the Departments of Homeland Security and Education as well as the Environmental Protection Agency and National Drug Control Policy?

Suffice it to say, those four days last week were enough to make one "engage in an involuntary personal protein spill."  It was truly a specticle to witness and it makes this reporter glad he doesn't live ... (more)

Secret To Raising Smart Kids Is To Be A Smart Parent

By Ladymaggic, published on Jul 23, 2008

...should automatically make them succeed at Studies. We do not focus on the effort needed until it is too late.

Its not the time to tell University students that they need to 'do some study'. Many assume that they can simply pass exams because they are enrolled. The fault lies with the Education System that allows students who do not meet the required grade to pass up into the higher level. The student who has managed to go up the educational ladder without learning anything, thinks he is 'smart' because the school system has simply passed him, because not doing so reflects... (more)

By Lumiere, published on Jul 21, 2008

...manufacturing like Raytheon, Grumman, General Dynamics and Boeing Helicopter need to fade out of the spotlight like badly processed, imposterAmerican cheese. We want a country not defined by bloodshed and death but by unlimited possibilities for peace, compassion, tolerance, understanding and education.

The slices of neon yellow, processedAmerican cheese foundin the grocery storestoday do not represent the original intention of the product, they arenot only toxic toour body but to our consciousness as a country. Give me swiss, give me colby jack, give me cheddar but do not sell or... (more)

Celebrity Tabloids Murder The Newspaper

By Lumiere, published on Jul 8, 2008

...

When you see rows of tabloids at the grocery store, do not just be concerned, be outraged that YOU, an American Citizen are getting limited coverage to real news, local and international events. We take for granted our access to quality information. We must always remember that historically education and literacy were only available to the social elite. Books were originally printed on parchment via the woodblocking process in Asia, which made them extremely expensive and rare. In fact, one book was equal in value to a small vineyard or farm. In 1436, Johannes Gutenberg, a European,... (more)

Cowboy Country

By V, published on Jul 7, 2008

... Utah we came to the ticky-tacky town of St. George, home of Dixie State College. Although we’d never heard of Dixie State College, you’d be blind, deaf or illiterate to miss this information. While Australian Universities may be able to boast an internationally competitive level of education, we cannot compete with American college facilities. The football field and its bleachers at Dixie State may as well have been the size of the SCG (Sydney Cricket Ground). These bizarrely perfect, cookie-cutter housing estates seemed to have tapped into water sources somewhere to create these ... (more)
