Monday, April 1, 2019

Getting Back To Basics

by Tony Badranvia The Caravan
Tuesday, April 2, 2019

Since the end of the Cold War — and, most dramatically, in the Bush and Obama years — American strategy in the Middle East has shifted from one anchored in the state system to one focused on non-state actors, particularly terrorist groups, and on projects disconnected from geopolitics.  The result has been the return — after nearly five decades — of Russian sway, the commandeering of large swaths of territory by Iran, and the emergence on the scene of China. The Russian-Iranian military campaign in Syria, and the increasing Chinese influence in the Middle East require a return to Cold War principles.

An Analysis Of Admissions In Elite Universities And Colleges For The Class Of 2023

by Alvin Rabushkavia Thoughtful Ideas
Wednesday, April 3, 2019

In the past two decades, almost every elite university and liberal arts college has reduced White admissions from a majority to a steadily decreasing minority of its undergraduate students. They boast of this achievement on their web sites and in their admission brochures. In 2019, the share of White admissions to elite schools ranges from 21% to 36% less than Whites as a share of the U.S. population. One can plot the reduction in White admissions over the past 20 years from the published numbers in their Common Data Sets.

What is it with Rhode Island Senator Sheldon Whitehouse? During the Kavanaugh confirmation spectacle, he showed himself to be a killer clown (if you can imagine a killer clown doing his thing with haughty grandiosity). Like the rest of his colleagues on the Democratic side of the Senate Judiciary Committee, the man operates without a conscience.

Disparities Don’t Always Equal Discrimination

quoting Thomas Sowellvia Albany Student Press
Tuesday, April 2, 2019

In today’s milieu, we are used to the concept of fairness and equality. Our politicians use it in their campaign platforms, we hear it on the news, we hear it in our classrooms and there are even people walking around in t-shirts that succinctly show the word “equality” on them. But, no matter the implications of such social displays, many of us seldom understand the facts and statistics behind inequality.
