    The Islamic Center in Uddevalla arranged a demonstration on the city square during Friday. The number of Muslims in Uddevalla become so big that one requires a larger mosque and it seems that the city’s politicians should fix them. The participants also held a joint public Friday prayer.

    Freepers: I am in the process of translating, for the first time, a non-fiction book from it's original German into English. As a non-German speaker, I am attempting to use Google Translate, and a painstaking paragraph-by-paragraph mode. However, there are some letters in the original text that are not present on an English keyboard. Particularly a letter that resembles a stylized capital B. Not knowing what sound this iteration represents, I have been using guesswork to try to overcome my ignorance, with only mixed results. For instance, the sentence "Junge Burgersohne, die bisher Sportseglermutzen getragen hatten, lie(stylized B)en sie jetzt...

    The experience of being an outsider is central to the poetry of Audre Lorde. So it’s curious that Lorde, who died in 1992, has posthumously become the ultimate insider on American campuses, providing an ideological foundation for today’s social-justice warriors. It’s hard to overstate Lorde’s influence. ....... (snip) More fundamentally, higher education is obsessed with “intersectionality.” Lorde didn’t invent the idea, but her adherents believe she embodies it. The theory supposes that different forms of discrimination act together to compound oppression. Lorde, who was black and lesbian, claimed to write from the perspective of “those of us who have been...

    This sounds as surreal as it gets, but unfortunately, this is the world we live in. Today’s news is about a school teacher who lost his job for the crime of “misgendering”. Yest, that’s a real word used by the politically correct social justice warriors nowadays. The crime, you asked? Well, this is a math teacher, 27 year old Joshua Sutcliffe, who made the fatal mistake of saying “well done girls” to a group of his pupils, after presumably they did good on a test or something. The problem is that among the group of girls was a special girl...

    1) Good Christmas present for smart people. Somewhat complex sophistries are explained in simple terms. It’s fun knowing how this stuff works. 2) This book is a guidebook to what’s really going on in our public schools. Weird, unproven theories and methods are commonplace, such as Sight-words to teach reading, Constructivism to teach knowledge, Common Core Math to teach arithmetic, and so on. Once you understand these gimmicks, then you can fight back more successfully against the school system. 3) A group, whether 2 people or 20 people, can use this book to initiate and focus discussions. You can pick...

    ACRU Policy Board member Walter Williams explains that black students all too often are given “fraudulent diplomas” from failing school systems like that in Baltimore, where in 13 of 39 schools, not one single student tested “proficient” in math. His solution is to “break the education monopoly” with school choice, vouchers, tuition tax credits and charter schools.

    I need some advice. I'm unable to continue on in my current occupation in warehousing and storage. I've been doing it for many years, but now my knees are so shot that I can't even do light labor comfortably or stand for very long. I have a friend who is a vocational rehab counselor that can get me set up with a ticket to ride on an education to get into a field that is more compatible with my physical problems. What makes it all the more thought-provoking, is that I just turned 50. That's not old, but old enough...

    Jemes G. Martin Center for Academic Renewal ^ | December 6, 2017 | 1BadgerStater
    In last year’s campaign for the presidency, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders tried to attract votes with promises of free college. In the British elections earlier this year, one reason for the Labour Party’s surge was its pledge to do more to help students afford college. Higher education has become a very big political issue, with many voters receptive to candidates who want to help them get their degrees. That explains a recent report entitled “The College Affordability Crisis in America.” This thin report was prepared by the Democratic Staff of the Joint Economic Committee and has been publicized by...

    ... In the next chart, we categorize student loan holders by the selectivity of the college they attended and by the major they pursued. Using Barron’s Profile of American Colleges (2001) ranking of college competitiveness, we classify four-year colleges into two categories: “selective” (colleges ranked “competitive” or above by Barron’s) and “nonselective.” In addition, we classify students into one of four fields, based on their major: “Arts and Humanities” (majors such as languages, sociology, theater), “Business and Law” (economics, legal studies, management), “STEM” (science, technology, engineering, mathematics), and “Vocational” (aviation, cosmetology, welding). In analysis not reported here, we find that...

Your old promise of giving students an education. Was it all just an illusion? Forgive me for my sarcasm in taking liberty with Evita's famous lyrics, but Wright Street is fast becoming Wrong Street when we realize academia is indoctrinating rather than educating America’s young people. Here is what a University of Illinois “academic” just published: "On many levels mathematics operates as Whiteness." In a newly published math education book, School of...

    They have no intention of giving Donald Trump a clear victory even if said victory would be of great benefit to the American Middle Class. Instead, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and fellow GOP Senators Bob Corker and Jeff Flake, among others, are creating further dissention in the hopes of stalling or even halting the proposed tax cuts legislation altogether. McConnell is presently calling the process “challenging” while Corker and Flake are claiming to have concerns over the tax cuts worsening the deficit. That claim is especially astounding from Senator Corker given he was only too happy to allow former...

    After numerous unanswered complaints to the bureaucrats running Ocean View Elementary school in Norfolk, Virginia regarding her daughter being bullied by other students, Sarah Sims put a digital recorder in her 9-year-old’s backpack. School authorities found the recorder and reported it to the police. Sims is now charged with “felony use of a device to intercept oral communication.” Vice-Principal Rupert Petty explained that “covert recording is not a minor infraction. For one thing, surveillance is the exclusive prerogative of school authorities. Students and parents who take it upon themselves to usurp this prerogative demonstrate a disrespect for authority.

President Trump was able to persuade only 37 percent of the youth vote - mainly white males without college degrees - the bane of Liberals, but maybe the last hope of civilized Americana.  According to a recent study by the  Victims of Communism Memorial, half...
