• Should I report my professor for making anti-Trump remarks?

    My professor declared to the class that Trump doesn't want to serve the American citizens and isn't doing what's in our best interest. Many of my professors do it once and a while, and it's getting on my nerves!

  • Why are government-run schools so bad at educating children?

    One out of every five high school graduates is functionally illiterate. That's 13 years of school and $150,000 spent on a single student and only 80 percent have even learned enough basics to function in society. Not to mention we're talking about GRADUATES.

    One out of every five high school graduates is functionally illiterate. That's 13 years of school and $150,000 spent on a single student and only 80 percent have even learned enough basics to function in society. Not to mention we're talking about GRADUATES. Nevermind the people who drop out of high school which in some (highly liberal) areas is as much as 50 percent. The average home-schooled kid outperforms 90 percent of high school graduates. http://www.intellectualtakeout.org/blog/... https://www.hslda.org/docs/study/ray2009...

  • How many genders are there? And give facts, proof and reason to go along with your answer?

    Best answer: Gender originally referred to noun classes in languages. Indo-European languages often have three genders. Semitic languages have two. Swahili has 18, and other languages have various numbers of genders including 0 genders. Then gender was used to refer to roles in society. These roles are cultural constructs.... show more
    Best answer: Gender originally referred to noun classes in languages. Indo-European languages often have three genders. Semitic languages have two. Swahili has 18, and other languages have various numbers of genders including 0 genders.

    Then gender was used to refer to roles in society. These roles are cultural constructs. Some Native American cultures have as many as five genders, Asian Indians have at least three. Since various cultures have different definitions of roles, it is really the case that there are more than twice as many genders as there are different cultures. For example in some cultures, trowing pots is associated with the female gender. In others only those of the male gender may throw pots. So that is four genders: male doesn't throw pots, male throws pots, female may not throw pots, female throws pots. And of course there will be many cultures in which throwing pots is not particularly associated with any gender.

    Finally, gender became a polite word for sex. Humans are a species with the XY chromosome system. While most individuals are either XX or XY, there are a number of other combinations that can and do occur such as X0, XXY, Some combinations are not viable, but others are found in living persons. Aside from chromosomal sex, there are also developmental difference which affect the appearance and/or functionality of the sex organs.

  • When are people going to realize that college is a scam?

    So many people think that once when one has a bachelors degree, then a good paying job is guaranteed. So many think that one is going to find a job making $60,000 to $70,000 right after college because of a college degree.

    So many people think that once when one has a bachelors degree, then a good paying job is guaranteed. So many think that one is going to find a job making $60,000 to $70,000 right after college because of a college degree. What is it going to take for the general public to see that the above is a big lie. The only thing that college is necessary for is for people who are studying a subject that actually has a set career, such as becoming a lawyer, a doctor, an engineer, etc. Anything else besides these subjects is not going to get you a good paying job. For anything else, one is better going off to a trade school. There are people who went off to trade school and only spent maybe $6,000 most (including books!) to become an HVAC Tech who end up making more than $100,000 a year. Then you have college grads with a BA or BS degree in whatever and are $90,000 in debt with school loans who are working low paying jobs or can't even find a job. When is the general public going to wake up to the big college lie?

  • "African American is funny" grammatically correct or not?

    Best answer: Not It is not correct and it makes no sense. You cannot use the noun "African American" without an article (the, an), as if it were the name of a language (e.g., "Italian sounds musical"). It doesn't make sense to say "An African American is funny" or "The African American is... show more
    Best answer: Not
    It is not correct and it makes no sense. You cannot use the noun "African American" without an article (the, an), as if it were the name of a language (e.g., "Italian sounds musical"). It doesn't make sense to say "An African American is funny" or "The African American is funny"--which one? Are African Americans in general "funny"--all of them? A senseless, mindless statement.

  • Academic Disqualification to Med School?

    So I was academically disqualified from the university I went to for undergrad, mostly because of my bad grades due to personal issues (a family member killed herself and I didn't know how to deal with it, I didn't feel I fit in, was dealing with my own depression, and my priorities weren't in the right... show more
    So I was academically disqualified from the university I went to for undergrad, mostly because of my bad grades due to personal issues (a family member killed herself and I didn't know how to deal with it, I didn't feel I fit in, was dealing with my own depression, and my priorities weren't in the right places). I however managed to work through all of those issues and school is my top priority; I'm at a CC now, and my gpa (including the gpa earned from uni is now a 3.8). I'm transferring back to the uni I got disqualified from, and this time with the correct mindset, so I KNOW I will only be getting better. Assuming I perform well on my MCATs and do my fair share of ECs, how much will the disqualification impact my chances of getting into med school?

  • Hi, can you just tell me in this sentence what "these" refer to? And the whole meaning? Thanks.?

    In general, effective classroom communication depends on understanding how features of the classroom talk register like these operate during actual class times.

  • Im considering dropping out of college. Advice?

    I'm currently in my second year at a local community college with at least (and hopefully) 1 more year to go. I'm at a moment in my educational journey where I'm just stuck.

    I'm currently in my second year at a local community college with at least (and hopefully) 1 more year to go. I'm at a moment in my educational journey where I'm just stuck. I have absolutely no idea what I want to do with my life (and I'm very indecisive, which doesn't help). My current major is mechanical engineering. I picked that cause I heard it was a good undergrad degree for biomedical engineering, which was my ultimate career goal. However, here I am about to flunk 1st semester physics for engineering, and having already failed 1st semester Gen. Chemistry... TWICE... Yeah. I know I should maybe just change majors, but TO WHAT? I've gone to career counseling before and I got recommended to STEM-like majors and careers. I've also considered business, but I don't think I have the interpersonal skills to do that. I've considered the medical field (maybe PT or PA) but I'm not sure if I'm emotionally equipped and personable enough to handle working with sick and dying patients. (I'm not really a people person). At this point, I'm asking myself why am I even in college? I have no real talents, horrible work ethic (which could explain the failures), and an indecisive mind. If I do end up dropping, it would only be for a short while (hopefully) to figure myself out. But i was hoping to get some advice on how I can overcome this funk that I'm experiencing.

  • What is the process of getting your child to skip a grade?

    Best answer: You would need to talk to the school. Skipping a grade isn't just about academics. There are also social/maturity issues to be considered. It may be that he's advanced in his academics, but if he'd drown, socially, if he moved up a grade, that's something you and the school really need to think about. show more
