Nothing is stopping most of them from leaving. I feel bad for people stuck there because of family ties. For most average people, once you factor out the state/local taxes, you can move to many places and basically get near free rent or a mortgage.

Ah-ha. Could be. I think I had a bias because I assumed anything there were doing was more cosmetic. Could be hip/knee.

Turd or overflowing bowl diarrhea. I don’t want either, but if I’ have to pick, I’ll take the turd.

PA is a diverse state. Very rich areas and very poor. His dress is a characterization of what the PA Joe Average looks like. There are more than a few that look like this, but this is a gimmick to him.

Cast iron is great - but a steal or non-stick pan can work too. Case iron can be expensive but you can usually fund some at a good will and buy a cheap kit to revive them if they are not too far gone. I really hate the pizza trend with people using all sorts of expensive backyard ovens and devices...it makes others think you have to spend a small fortune to make pizza at home.

Homemade pizza is not hand and all you need is a pan or two or a bake sheet. No need for gimmick pizza stones and the other nonsense. Dough is easy and while home made sauce is better, there is no shame in a jar. Make extra dough, freeze in plastic wrap and you can make a pizza far faster than delivery. Save 90% and get better quality without the shit ingredients. Kids can “help” and most enjoy it.

Truly a good actor. This child played a fantastic high IQ child on a TV series. Huge stretch and great range, but he pulled it off. Give credit where it’s due.

I wish I had made shirts like this - could have made a fortune off people like this.

That’s fine. But students opinion and surveys still count. Again, if not, we would not be talking about it and the professor in question would still be employed. Even if he decided grade 10x harder, it’s still the students that got him fired because they felt it was unfair.

It’s just another carrot for their idiotic base. Just vote for us again, and then we’ll have enough “power” to really do it this time...student loan forgiveness, socialized medicine, covid mandates, “sensible” gun control, i.e., abolishing the 2nd amendment, free this, free that, climate utopia...we just need more votes and a little more money, we’re almost there...oh, and it’s all the MEGA/MAGA/GOP’s fault you’re not getting all the free stuff already.

Grants are for research. I went to a large public school and many professors flourished based on student feedback. Professors do research, policy, and admin work. Research is left to the objective fields while the remainder get policy and admin work which is a good reason why colleges are bloated an ineffective. Professors doing research don’t teach much - they have instructors and TA’s for that - perhaps they’ll teach a grad level course. Other disciplines are a popularity contest. College is a business and parents and students are customers. If they did not care, why bother doing the surveys in the place?

And use local storage vs. cloud storage. I mean, use the cloud, it’s nice, just keep a local copy too.

So if/when they end up importing food from other countries that use as much or more nitrogen, can we then say it had nothing to do with nitrogen?

Quinoa is great vs. rice and has far more protein. Oat milk is OK for some things. Soy sauce and select soy products are good in some dishes. The problem is, this is all these dumb asses eat. Quinoa and chicken/beef - fantastic. Soy sauce, raw egg, and quinoa - wonderful. Oat milk, protein powder, oats, and chia seed for a pudding - nice treat. They limit themselves and it somehow makes them better?

This is probably why he’s making this statement. He won’t have to give them a package or severance if they quit. Mostly employees don’t have to do shit, but this is CA, so there may be some legal issues if he does not.

Student reviews make a huge difference in who they keep, fire, promote. Well-rated professors get more butts in seats. Popular professors never get fired. It’s a bad cycle that feeds itself. Many “instructors” have packed classrooms because they are easy graders and the class is “fun” and “eye-opening”, etc...Why rock the boat? Give easy grades, get your paycheck and go home. That’s the incentive. Instead, he’s fired. A few C’s vs. F’s and we’d not be having this exchange and he would be employed.

Student surveys. Students rate professors. This is not the websites, this is the university formal surveys. Hard graders are rated worse.

Yes. Listen up criminals and would-be criminals. Guns are NOW illegal and you can have them or use them for crimes.

He has little incentive to make the test harder and more to make it easier. Student surveys determine a lot and easy A’s get better results. The bar has been lowered across the board - from high school graduation to college entrance. I’d suspect this is starting to show in more objective areas of study like O-chem. Most students don’t do great in these class and that’s why most grade on a curve. Journalism is lazy but I’d bet the format, number of questions, and difficulty has not changed much over the years. This guy is old school and has likely not lowered the bar in his class. College used to be for the elite, now almost anyone can get in.

If they put the contract out for bid: 1. They already decided the winner and 2. private contracts know this and don’t even bid. A good contractor could do this for far less, to code, and more quickly.
