    I was hoping he would choose unmanned targets of high value but that would be tough with Iran.

    The other issue that one has yo consider is back channel discussions could have played a role in his decision to not retailiate.

    That Drone was awful close to Saudi Arabia and Iran has been backing foreign fighters who have been operating in SA. With Venezeula, N Korea, Iran, Syria... all these places not able to keep oil flowing the entire world is at risk of food shortages if Iran provokes SA into conflict.

    I am hoping Iran came to their senses and reached out to ease tensions.

    I think the entertainment industry needs to realize "subscription fatigue" is a much larger problem than the aspect that impacts them. Retailers, software, social media, mobile services, apps, so many companies have ditched pay per use and you cannot get anything ad hoc these days because enterprises want consumers locked in for predictable revenue flow.

    I am sick of all subscriptions across the board myself and cutting them all out because frankly... the occasional game or movie is not worth it.

    When I was a kid in the second grade. I was in a vastly different society than we have today. It was racially divided and sexual equality was merely a pipe dream.

    I recall an occasion when I was drawing a picture and a popular girl was sitting next to me watching. A group of other girls came over and they began to conspire and talk about various things as kids do. One of the girls started and looked at me and she said there is a boy here. All of the other girls looked at me and I looked at my supplies and thought... "I gotta move?" The girls all in unison said... "It is Timothy." with a look of confusion as to why the issue was brought up. The girl shrugged and they went back to talking and even made efforts to draw me into the conversation at times to settle disputes.

    Now many young boys would have interpreted that as "He is not a boy." But I was quite proud of that moment as indicated by my memory of it almost half a century later. I took it to mean "He is different, would never share our secrets and will not judge us and has no secret agenda to use whatever he hears."

    They could relax and be themselves and even get value from my perspectives as a boy.

    This was not because I was an amazing wonderful special person. Quite the opposite. I was simply guileless. It was not lost on me that the school's black janitor felt that way around me. It was not lost on me that the adults would forget me present... the elderly would as well. They were all comfortable around me. They wanted my input and thoughts. They wanted to share with me.

    The author is like that one little girl... or the racist guy who has lived in fear of gang members... understandable but not the best outlook.

    The author sees how most men are and assumes everyone they encounter is like most of men. Prejudiced.

    I feel compassion for you and what you are missing out on, it does not leave me feeling left out because it is not about me and who I am and how I behave. When I see other prejudices I feel compassion for the prejudiced one... not the blacks or Hispanics or men or the women.

    The one who is getting really robbed is the one who has overlooked the value of someone.

  • I think everyone is missing the bigger picture here. You have to have extremely selective vision and biased thinking to conclude Colleges are not big business. So what is a business?

    I think everyone is missing the bigger picture here. You have to have extremely selective vision and biased thinking to conclude Colleges are not big business. So what is a business? Well it is an enterprise that employs people and produces a product or service that is in turn used by consumers. The funding for these services can come from any number of funding schemes.

    Education... ALL education fits this definition.

    What about government? It fits this definition as well. But it has a special relationship with business. The very goal of government is regulation. When the people who run a enterprise are the people who regulate the enterprise that creates a conflict of interest.

    This is fundamentally why Judges, lawyers, Legislators, regulators, non-profits, for-profits, government services, all need separate and independent and non influenced regulators.

    I am not proposing the solution. I am returning to the requirements and objectives. We need these on the board while we discuss solutions.

    We need corruption out of all of our systems of education.

    Whenever science announces something interesting people jump to use the announcement to market products.

    Most of these "innovative new" ideas are neither innovative or new. They natural have to align the product to the science announcement. However their is almost always a huge disconnect between the vastly simplified public announcement and the science beneath it.

    Thus is no exception but I will point out the most obvious problem with assuming this science advocates learning a language this way.

    Your mind needs to process what happened during your day. This is a natural function of how we process and make choices in our daily lives. Our mind subconsciously makes many conclusions about what to process each evening and does not share its decisions with our conscious mind for many complex reasons.

    So you are not able to "get" more learning time from your day. That is the lie. You might can distract your mind from important memory processing but you are not gaining additional learning by distracting your mind during this important phase of sleep. The scientist have not recommended anyone do that.

    Might be better to let your inner mind choose what to organize and prioritize.

  • What brings peace is allowing people to contribute and find a way to be valued and feel they matter. Humanity without being able to contribute value is not survival... it is a prison sentence.

    What brings peace is allowing people to contribute and find a way to be valued and feel they matter. Humanity without being able to contribute value is not survival... it is a prison sentence.

    For a young person who has never just been parked and provided for to believe that is what people need to be happy is not surprising.

    Her perspective represents the devaluing of experience and understanding that comes from someone who did not have to struggle for years to gain credibility and just got it by making wild promises no one will ever actually hold her accountable for delivering.

    For humanity to evolve and adapt to the world she describes is a model for devolution without anyone being responsible for their words and actions.

    Communism self destructs because it does not understand happiness is being able to contribute value. It creates destructive apathy, corruption and ultimately rebellion.

    People NEED to matter.

    Best article on the internet today. One liner general advice like "be yourself" is the opposite of what people need to do to be happy and successful in life. The fundamental and undeniable secret to success in life is adapt, learn and grow while the message behind this is "stay the same immature person you are". This advice is why we have hundreds of millions of kids with philosophy and Graphic design degrees but zero marketable and valuable skills.

    Our world will change so dramatically over the next few decades and learning to enjoy and be at peace while adapting to opportunities is the real secret to happiness.

    Learn to be happy with what is most beneficial and advantagous rather than insisting on "being yourself" which is nothing more than "demand you get your way in life."

    We have had enough focus on "me" and what we think is important and need a lot more concern for others viewpoints in order to truly be happy in society while spreading that happiness.

    "Be yourself" is actually quite impossible... "yourself" is a conceptual model of yourself that you create and recreate anew each time the thought if "me" occurs to you. One moment you are simply a sports fan and the next moment you can be an incredibly complex combination of the current result of all past experiences.

    Since experiences are always occuring to change who we are, we are constantly becoming a new "me."

    I can think of nothing closer to purgatory than remaining the same being for the rest of my life.

    Colin K cannot actually do more for blacks in America than the original, Coach K - so he is doing what he does best and resorting to sabotaging those who have done the most for young black men while hurting someone who actually has talent. Cheap sweat shop shoes and divisive grandstanding is not the way. Work and effort to cultivate talent is the right way.

    You cannot ride the backs of young Asians in slave conditions working in sweat shops to erase the stain of exploitation and come out a winner.

    My heart is with Zion and hopefully they can get some New Balance and his knee will heal and we can all move forward together as one nation with liberty for all and equal opportunity that does not make millionaires out of divisive people.

  • How is this any different from Obama's sheninagans to pay for Obamacare? The President said it was an emergency while running for office and got elected and there is no reason to believe he does not still legitimately consider it an emergency.

    How is this any different from Obama's sheninagans to pay for Obamacare? The President said it was an emergency while running for office and got elected and there is no reason to believe he does not still legitimately consider it an emergency.

    As far as I am concerned if he stops one child sold into sex slavery or prevents another murder by a MS13 member sneaking over the border he has met the criteria for an emergency

    The disingenious political kick the can approach the Democrats have taken on this serious issue has to STOP. We cannot wait four years so the other party can get credit for something and we have to start compromising.

    Trump was willing to compromise on DACA and the democrats have FAILED the American people in their tirade against losing to Trump.

  • Our minds are simply not designed to categorize the reliability if the source of information we have encountered. You can train kids as much as you like but you cannot overcome that limitation.

    Our minds are simply not designed to categorize the reliability if the source of information we have encountered. You can train kids as much as you like but you cannot overcome that limitation.

    What we should be teaching our children is how to control what sources of information they expose themselves to based on the legitimacy of the reporting.

    Even the best most reliable journalistic sources embed countless advertising blurbs within every article and they are presented as legitimate content. It is big business to mislead and staying ahead of it is a losing game.

    Until consumers learn to pay for reliable news sources not filled with advertising and control what they let themselves be exposed to this will remain a problem.
