    From The Atlantic: Colleges don't really mind grade and test inflation in high school because they make them look better in USNWR statistics. And
  • The best solution is Peterike’s Open Admissions Law. All college admission materials — scores, essays, etc — must be publicly viewable. As must all notes, scoring models, etc used by admissions committees. Interviews with applicants will be recorded and made available online, as will discussions of the admissions committees, which will be broadcast live as well as recorded.

    That oughta change a few things up.

    We need this transparency. For the children.

  • Wow, you could have a lot of Current Day fun with this.

    Set up a stand in front of a racially mixed neighborhood’s McDonalds. Tell people going in that you can have a blue coupon which gets you any sandwich free right now, or five red coupons for free sandwiches but you can’t start using them until next week.

    Do that, and then tell me the racial breakdown of the results. And then show me the WaPo article that says “well of course, blacks prefer the color blue to red, which is why they all picked the blue coupon.”

    Here's the 2017 Forbes list:

    https://www.forbes.com/athletes/list/#tab:overall

    Mickelson is still #3 in endorsements in the world behind Federer and LeBron in his later 40s.

    Arnold Palmer ranked high in endorsements into his 80s. It's good to be a golf champion.

    Mickelson is still #3 in endorsements in the world behind Federer and LeBron in his later 40s. Arnold Palmer ranked high in endorsements into his 80s. It’s good to be a golf champion.

    I have never understood endorsements. Why should I care that somebody is getting paid to recommend a car, a watch, a set of golf clubs?

    I don’t care much about sports, but I care a lot about literature. And while I loved Tom Wolfe as a writer, if he tried to sell me a Rolex or anything else I simply couldn’t care less. It means nothing to me.

    Why do people care about endorsements?

    I think for the sporting equipment side of things, there's a rationale argument for using the best stuff and that the pros use the best. Therfore, you'd want to use what they use.

    I'm not sure how that rolls over to cars and watches, though.

    Check the works of Robert Cialdini. This is the guy Scott Adams refers to as THE biggest person in the field of influence. (I think Scott Adams calls him Godzilla).

    A big part of it is simple visibility for marketing and advertising products.

    A company wants the public to know about its product. The public already knows some famous person and recognizes him immediately. The famous person "endorses" the product and becomes attached to it, and now when people see and recognize the famous person, they also see the product prominently attached to him.

    At the most basic level, it's simply about getting the product in front of as many eyeballs as possible via spatial attachment or association with a famous person.

    A Hispanic man is offended that he found the word beaner on his cup. Starbucks already groveled.

    A Hispanic man is offended that he found the word beaner on his cup. Starbucks already groveled.

    I found this one amusing. Seems the “offended” man can’t even speak English, since I only see quotes from his “friend.” And the friend said the “violated” guys name was Peter.

    My guess is the guy came in and when asked his name said “Peter” in a very heavy accent, like “beee-tah,” and the hapless Starbucks person in good faith thought he said “Beaner.” I’d even bet the barista didn’t know Beaner was a forbidden word.

    I haven’t tried to find too much on this story, but from what I saw nobody seem to bother asking the Starbucks employee about it.

    I used to go to test centers all the time for my certifications.. They are inherently cheap to operate. You just need one minimum wage clerk. some networked cheap PCs and a waiting room.

    I think you could develop some inexpensive hardware that would solve most of the security problems. After ten seconds of thought I came up with a web cam recording the teat taker and storing the video for a year. Not bulletproof but maybe good enough.

    You fail to deal with Asian cheating ingenuity! Wasn’t there something posted on here recently about just this kind of thing? Like people reading the screens via binoculars? I can’t remember.

    Anyway, here’s my system for cheating on the web test while on camera.

    Since you’re at home, setup dual monitors. Have someone else sitting across from you (out of the web cam view) who sees the same test you do on the second monitor. They can happily go about looking up answers for you and easily signal them back to you. For example, writing on a piece of paper “Answer to #12 is B” and holding it up.

    Really, you’d have to watch the tape of every test taker in full. That would require an army of test monitors. I suppose you could come up with some AI to identify suspicious behavior (looking up too often? odd blinking patterns?) but it quickly gets ridiculous.

    I used to go to test centers all the time for my certifications.. They are inherently cheap to operate. You just need one minimum wage clerk. some networked cheap PCs and a waiting room.

    I know the kinds of places you mean. They would fail miserably in a low-trust test taking environment (i.e. Asians) for a high-stakes test. For starters, bribing the “minimum wage clerk” to look the other way. There, done.

    It really is very, very difficult to stop determined cheating.

    You seem to distrust Asians. Most such comments like this express a distrust of Jews. My cousin Willy felt that way about Mormons.

    Actually the most common computerized tests - those from Microsoft - can be very valuable. For example after the divorce and I got the house I still needed to convince the lender of my credit worthiness. My advanced degrees in administration earned under a full academic scholarship did not impress them at all. But my many Microsoft certifications proved to them at once that I was creditworthy.

    So if the Asians have any sense of value you would think that they have cheated on these tests at greater rates than Occidentals. That might be true. I don't kniow. But I sugest we elevate this discussion by relying on verifiable facts.

    We live in the future that I envisioned as a teen age reader of Science Fiction. There was a section in some early Niven-Pournelle novel where a guy on some future world buys access to the international computer complex that can answer any question. This dream is now real . Its called Google. I never imagined that everyone would have instantaneous access to pornography. But we have that too. We don't have all the flying cars that were on all those "Popular Science" magazine covers. But we are getting self driving cars instead.

    No doubt about it. This is the future.

    Except of course for education. We have the technical means to have a true outcomes oriented education. We could easily have testing services available on the web where anyone could demonstrate their mastery of some subject by taking a test. Then when you went to a job interview you wouldn't have to produce a diploma for some irrelevant college degree. You could just show a printout of what exams you had passed.

    We could fire most teachers. The really talented ones would appear on TV or the computer. We could eliminate all those deadly faculty meetings. Thousands of mediocre academics could be released to do more useful work and generations of young people wouldn't be enslaved by student debt.

    Time to get the teachers out of teaching.

    We could easily have testing services available on the web where anyone could demonstrate their mastery of some subject by taking a test.

    It’s very hard to control cheating in that environment. You would have to bring people into testing centers to even have a shot at a cheat-free exam.

    Asians seem pretty good at getting their elderly parents SSI, public housing, and food stamps. Even if the family is wealthy.
    , @Anon
    I’d say about 6,000 of them are Asian hucksters. They will continue living in their Richmond district 2 bedrooms house over a garage with 30 relatives.

    And they will rent out that low income apartment for maybe $5,000 a month while paying the housing authority $400 a month.

    Speaking of Chinese, here is a very common scam.

    The family owns Songs sweatshop. Sometimes it’s a real business, sometimes not. The family creates say 20 ghost employees. The family pays into the state unemployment fund for the ghost employees. The Songs know exactly how much to claim the ghost employee earns to get the maximum benefit when the ghost employee is laid off because of “ lack of work”

    Being Chinese, the Songs have good quality fake Id for the ghost employees.

    Nowadays filing for unemployment is all done online and the checks arrive. I think they have to go just once in person to the unemployment office.

    In the old days a Song family member had to go to the unemployment office in person to sign up and turn in the list of places they applied for work

    After the ghost employee gets all the unemployment possible, the ghost employee goes back to work and the Song family company sends unemployment contributions again.

    Every few years the name of Song Sweatshop is changed to Wong, Fong, Chong.

    This has been going on since unemployment was created in the 1930s I think. Used to be news articles every few years about how some business scammed the unemployment benefits. But since about 1995 it’s all covered up to avoid offense to the model minority.

    Another minor scan is their dry cleaners. They don’t send the clothes to the factory where they are dipped in the cleaning fluid. They just iron the dirty clothes and give them back to the customer.

    Gas pumps that charge a gallon more than is actually pumped? Routine!!

    Crab salad that’s actually chopped halibut? Routine since they took over the tourist trap restaurants.

    And because they are not White they get all the SBA loans and tax exemptions for their crooked businesses

Doesn’t that seem like an extreme set of acts and responses?

    No, Tom. It seems like normal behavior from people who aren’t ethnomasochists. I’m not some kind of -phobic with an irrational fear if I want my descendants to not live in a wartorn country they may eventually end up suffering a total genocide at the hands of these “widows and orphans” (read: military-aged males who think European lands are up for grabs and will be theirs in the future).

    You see, the normal person who voted for Trump wanted what his surface-level politics during the campaign trail were about. Not the stuff he’s actually been doing which no one voted for (yes, democracy is a bad system with no accountability,) but the stuff he talked about. The end to this neoliberal insanity which you support most of. If you really cared so much about the environment, you wouldn’t be for mass migration. If you really cared about minimizing conflict, you wouldn’t be for mass migration since migration is the same as war in its effects and eventual outcome.

    It is not some arbitrary preference that I want a territory maintained for my kind and not invaded by unending migration of alien peoples whom we are poked, prodded, pressured, coerced and forced to miscegenate ourselves out of existence with by social engineers bent on a European genocide, which they are beginning to get louder and louder with their intent on with each passing year and the constant gloating that they think “in the future, there won’t BE any white people! and that’s a good thing!”

    The reason we care more about these terrorist attacks on our soil is that we expect them to do as they do in their own countries, but the glaring fact is the people doing this in our countries aren’t us, and never will be us. They are interlopers we didn’t invite in; they were invited in from the top down with no consent.

    Speaking of which, people own weapons in the US because they can and because they don’t trust their government. Given what that government has done for the last 50+ years, why should they? People in other countries would do the same were they not such totalitarian nightmare states crushing down on their native population, like in Britain. Speaking of bogeymen by the way, you want to pin this all on Trump when the material conditions for much of what you wring your hands about existed well before he even announced his run. Criticize the fact that he isn’t doing what he was elected to do. Don’t try to concoct some lame duck grand narrative that he caused all of these problems, because he didn’t.

    In modern times, to get that look means a highly specialized diet/exercise routine that is going to consume much of your waking hours, and the Laocoon Group was from back when grains were the most efficient calorie source. Strongmen from the 19th century didn't look anything like that. So how did the ideal even germinate in the minds of the artists in late BC/early AD?

    Maybe our genetics have changed. Maybe grain isn't what it used to be either. It's kind of depressing to think Classical Greece was peak homo sapiens and everything since is just technological accretion.

    Maybe grain isn’t what it used to be either.

    I can’t comment on how this fits into the Ancient physique, but grains were vastly different back then from the mono-culture grain we have today. Much of the current mania around gluten sensitivity is likely a by-product of grain mono-culture. Indeed, this whole thing is very new, only the last fifty years or so. Agriculture has changed dramatically, and what most of us eat on a daily basis is really pretty awful, even while part of an ostensibly “healthy” diet.

    Asch conformity experiments

    Groups of eight male college students participated in a simple "perceptual" task. In reality, all but one of the participants were actors, and the true focus of the study was about how the remaining participant would react to the actors' behavior.

    The actors knew the true aim of the experiment, but were introduced to the subject as other participants. Each student viewed a card with a line on it, followed by another with three lines labeled "A", "B", and "C" (See accompanying figure). One of these lines was the same as that on the first card, and the other two lines were clearly longer or shorter (i.e., a near-100% rate of correct responding was expected). Each participant was then asked to say aloud which line matched the length of that on the first card. Before the experiment, all actors were given detailed instructions on how they should respond to each trial (card presentation). They would always unanimously nominate one comparator, but on certain trials they would give the correct response and on others, an incorrect response. The group was seated such that the real participant always responded last.

    Subjects completed 18 trials. On the first two trials, both the subject and the actors gave the obvious, correct answer. On the third trial, the actors would all give the same wrong answer. This wrong-responding recurred on 11 of the remaining 15 trials. It was subjects' behavior on these 12 "critical trials" that formed the aim of the study: to test how many subjects would change their answer to conform to those of the 7 actors, despite it being wrong.
     

    Only 5 percent of participants were always swayed by the crowd. 25 percent of the sample consistently defied majority opinion, with the rest conforming on some trials.
     

    Presence of a true partner
    Asch found that the presence of a "true partner" (a "real" participant or another actor told to give the correct response to each question) decreased conformity.[1][3] In studies that had one actor give correct responses to the questions, only 5% of the participants continued to answer with the majority.

    The key to understanding modern America is to forget about race and religion and look at IQ instead. In raw numbers, Jews are "over-represented" in the elites but if you adjust for IQ, they are just where you would expect them to be. Instead of "Jews" say "high IQ elites" - high IQ elites are disproportionately Jewish but not just Jewish - they are WASP and Asian too. And instead of blacks say "low IQ" and instead of "whites" say "middle IQ". Modern America is based on a high-low coalition against the middle. The elites provide the intellectual leadership and the low provide the voting masses (in exchange for goodies) and they squeeze the middle to pay for it all.

    As you point out, blacks and Hispanics don't really compete with Jews for the same jobs (except perhaps inside the Democrat Party hierarchy) so the deal that you are proposing is a non-starter. The calculus that the elites made in 2016 was that the high-low coalition was numerically strong enough to rule and they were ALMOST right. But 2016 might have been a last gasp as the demographics only continue to move in their direction.

    Instead of “Jews” say “high IQ elites” – high IQ elites are disproportionately Jewish but not just Jewish – they are WASP and Asian too.

    That’s true but beside the point. It isn’t the elites per se that matter. It’s the elites who are hostile to the historical white American population. After all, it wasn’t just any random elite who gave the Sierra Club $100 million to change their anti-immigration stand. It was David Gelbaum. It isn’t just any elite spending $10 million on an Impeach Trump campaign. It’s Tom Steyer.

    You could have hundreds of similar examples, and likewise from Asian elites. Sure, there are WASP elites who are just as hostile to core America — Hillary Clinton to name one prime example. But among the elites as a group, there are far more hostile, anti-white Jews than Gentiles, with Asians rapidly closing the gap.

    So if we get rid of all artistic depictions of slavery and consign them to the memory hole, will that mean they will finally stop bashing whites over the head with slavery? If that we’re true, I’d sacrifice a few statues.

    iii) Peterike is what the rest of us whites consider to be 'waste matter', and we never let him into polite society. No white woman even knows he exists, which is really what drives him into misplaced rage against people he has never even interacted with in meatspace.

    There is much less to WN than meets the eye.

    This essay is completely detached from reality. As someone who has actually worked at Microsoft as a software engineer, I can assure you that there was indeed a 'colonization' of Microsoft - by smart people capable of passing a software engineering technical interview. It just so happened most of them are Indian.

    Why are most of them Indian? Because India provides free higher education for students who qualify. This includes degrees in computer science and electrical engineering. This directly results in India creating many more qualified software engineers than the U.S. In fact, the U.S. is graduating fewer and fewer professionals in computer science, presumably because of the exorbitant cost and crushing debt.

    If the U.S. wants to 'colonize' Microsoft with white Americans, then I suggest America follow India's example and provide high quality, free education. It's really that simple.

    Oh, and yes these Indians are socialists because their high paying jobs at Microsoft (and Google, Apple, Adobe, etc.) are the direct result of the quality education they received in a socialist system. Rather than criticizing in an obviously racist way, perhaps we should learn something.

    As someone who has actually worked at Microsoft as a software engineer, I can assure you that there was indeed a ‘colonization’ of Microsoft – by smart people capable of passing a software engineering technical interview. It just so happened most of them are Indian.

    Complete nonsense. You do know, don’t you, that Microsoft was already wildly successful back when it had a handful of Indians working there? So what happened?

    Thanks to various factors, mostly a desire to save money plus a politically Progressive adherence to multi-culturalism, Microsoft (and a thousand other tech companies) started to hire Indians. Among the grunt workers, there are always a few very slick operators, what one might call Jive Talking Indians among them. These people rapidly climbed the greasy pole at Microsoft into management positions (slick talking jive artist + Progressive HR that loved, loved, loved promoting “people of color” = rapid rise up the ladder).

    Once in a position of management, the Indians would only hire other Indians. Often, this funnel went right back to their specific home town or university. When an engineering group reached a critical mass of Indians, it became uncomfortable for whites to work there. The whites were encouraged to quit, or simply dumped out of Microsoft which used a predatory stack ranking policy which could be easily gamed by Indians to ensure whites got the sack, making room for…. more Indians!

    If you think the rise of Indians in tech is entirely a result of “talent” you are delusional. It was ethnic nepotism and networking to the Nth degree. And this has been going on for decades now.

    At the same time that software was being Asian-ized inside America, American companies were moving hardware technology manufacturing and development overseas, dumping loads of American workers in the process, all in pursuit of greater enrichment for the execs (cheap labor + no environmental or regulatory costs was a huge win for the exec class).

    American workers got screwed across multiple dimensions. But hey, in a way I can’t blame the Indians and the Chinese. They were simply taking advantage of an opportunity that was created by white and (((white))) executive management, mostly a group of vile money-grubbers who sold out their nation without batting an eye. The Asians learned very quickly that you could roll American companies with a dual approach of “cheaper-plus-diverse!” This made the execs happy, as their wealth increased, and the Cat Ladies in HR happy because Diversity!!

    I have spent 30 years of adult life pointing out certain obvious things, such as:



    Film reviewers are uniformly gay\Jewish\Lefty\Anti-American\Anti-White, and it leads to a near uniformity of opinion about film reviews. Which, shockingly, is pro-gay, anti-Christian , Anti-American, and anti-White in stunning uniformity.


    I have taken a lot of crap over the years pointing out that obvious fact, but I am just mean enough to enjoy the moment of making people choke on the truth of it.

    Film reviewers are uniformly gay\Jewish\Lefty\Anti-American\Anti-White

    As are all reviewers of culture, not just film. This was a particularly clever move on the part of Jews. They are good at criticism in general, far better than they are at art. But by controlling the critical apparatus, they can decide what’s “good,” which is why someone like like Phillip Roth is grossly over-rated, and a much better writer like John O’Hara tossed on the refuse heap. Why a ghastly, hate-filled artist like half-Jewish Richard Serra is proclaimed a genius. Why every bit of black-washing or pro-gay themes in movies, television, Broadway, etc. is praised. Und so weiter. Thus is the culture controlled.

    Owning the nation’s critical apparatus, both in popular terms and in academia, has proven a very effective weapon. And it quickly became a self-perpetuating machine, because stepping outside the orthodoxy effectively un-persons you, whether you’re Jewish or not. If you want to work, buddy boy, you better toe the line.

    In other words, she writes about herself and her obsessions. That’s scholarship my friends!

    Her monograph, Ingratitude: The Debt-Bound Daughter in Asian American Literature (NYU), won the Literary Studies Book Award from the Association for Asian American Studies in 2013. The book takes a long look at intergenerational conflict, that weary specter of second-generation writing, but under the harsh new lights of post-structuralist and cultural-materialist analyses. Ninh argues that the immigrant family unit is structured by an economic and political investment in the American capitalist system, and driven by its dedication profitably to raise the model minority. She argues, too, the grievous costs of this capitalist venture: a daughterly subjectivity trained by masochism into self-destruction.

Just take your “text” and run it through the Grievance Sausage Grinder and out pops your term paper which gets an A for being “brave.” Seriously, you could come up with a clever AI that could write these term papers. Don’t expect much actual scholarship to be going on. And in any case the rot has been around for so many decades, that most of the critics and scholars being cited in humanities papers are just peddling the same po-mo drivel. My guess is that T.S. Eliot’s “Tradition and the Individual Talent,” to take one example, isn’t cited very much in undergrad term papers any more.

    Passages like this are probably now considered hate speech:

    Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion; it is not the expression of personality, but an escape from personality. But, of course, only those who have personality and emotions know what it means to want to escape from these things.

    In 2014 Sadiq Khan wrote an article in which he apologised for Labour's 1997 decision to flood the United Kingdom with mass immigration. There had been some immigration from the former colonies in the 1950s all the way through the 1990s, but Tony Blair and Labour opened the mass immigration floodgates in 1997.

    Sadiq Khan is a human symbol of the collapse of the English ruling class just the same as Barack Obama was a symbol of the collapse of the WASP / Jew ruling class in the United States. The English ruling class and the WASP / Jew ruling class in the United States will soon be swept away.

    Remember, a lot of English voters who voted for the UK to leave the EU were English people pushed out of London by mass immigration, multiculturalism and high housing costs.

    Speaking of making changes in the field, I know a Japanese guy who works for a big Japanese zenekon (general contractor), and they've worked on Tokyo Disneyland rides and the initial construction of DisneySea. Something like Big Thunder Mountain's exterior was one-third Jazz improvisation. The volcano at DisneySea was built by paired teams of construction guys and designer/imagineers. Think "No, more stucco there, make the striations more quartzy, more gradation." The construction guys were going crazy. (The result is amazing, though.)

    and they’ve worked on Tokyo Disneyland rides and the initial construction of DisneySea.

    Disney does quite a lot of nice architecture in its hotels. Sure, it’s always kitchy and themed, but they tend to be pleasant, relaxing places that aren’t beating you over the head with some vile architect’s angst, or making a “statement.” And they are rife with interesting little details and craft, like buildings used to have as a matter of course.

    I don’t care about Asian corruption in Asia. The Chinese and Indians can be as corrupt as they want in their countries — it’s their countries. What I don’t want is bringing corrupt cultures to MY country.

    And there’s different kinds of corruption. There is taking money in return for a favor, a contract, an introduction to a decision maker, etc. I think Indians are very good at that kind of thing. Then there’s the corruption which is putting melamine into the baby formula, which seems like a more Chinese kind of thing. Shoddy corner cutting is corruption too. And that kind of thing is very Asian, and very third-world in general. But because Asians are smarter and more conniving then, say, Africans, they are more effective at this, and they have a receptive audience in high-trust American white people who give the benefit of the doubt. Hence the proliferation of Pakistanis and Indians in medical fraud, and so on.

    > It’s sort of interesting that a black woman who grew up in The One Percent (i.e., the 99th percent of entire population’s income distribution, not the 99th percent of black income) is likely to grow up to earn about as much individually as a white woman who grew up in The One Percent.

    One effect here is the difference in career orientation. The marriage market is much more favorable for college-educated white women than college-educated black women. Many high IQ white women will choose "lifestyle careers" based on the expectation of marrying a high IQ, high earning husband. Black women don't have the luxury of being able to count on that, so they tend to focus on high-earning careers.

    Secondarily, whites have higher saving rates than blacks. Even controlling for income. A white family in the top decile is likely to have accumulated a very large nest egg, which the adult kids can count on to buffer their lifestyle. You get a lot of white girls from high income families who use their trust fund to pursue interesting and high-status but low paying careers like being a journalist or an artist.

    I'd like to see Chetty's results, but controlled for career choice. My guess is the black/white women gap would basically be the same as the black/white male gap.

    Many high IQ white women will choose “lifestyle careers” based on the expectation of marrying a high IQ, high earning husband.

    Indeed, and there are vast numbers of these sorts of jobs. Working in art galleries, various museum curator / fund raiser jobs, NGO jobs, “style” writers of all sorts, publishing, public relations, theater, and so on. These jobs are filled by white women, increasingly by American-educated Asian women, and gay or soy-boy men. What there are very few of are black or Mestizo Hispanic women (plenty of Conquistador types though).

    These jobs are all designed to flatter female/gay vanity in one way or the other, whether it be an “I’m so artistic” vibe or an “I’m saving the world” vibe, or simply because one gets to hob-nob with the great and good and sip Prosecco at some bullshit function for some bullshit artist like Jeff Koons.

    Yet the women toiling at the low paying jobs somehow manage to live in expensive places like Brooklyn or San Francisco or Austin. How does that happen? Precisely: wealthy family or wealthy husband. But they are quite deliberately taking a lower-paying job because it fits their emotional needs, and what else are you going to do with that art history degree from Dartmouth?

    Smart lawyers are like smart computer programmers: they cut down on the number of unintended screwups.

    Writing a contract is like writing a computer program. It requires a lot of anticipation of hard to anticipate problems and provision of solutions.

    I was involved in writing a $100 million contract over 9 very long days. Most of the work was thinking of contingencies, getting the other side to agree to a solution (which was less hard in this case than it sounds), and then most of the work was the lawyers working out the exact wording to implement various if-then-else clauses that the seller and buyer had agreed upon in principle.

    and then most of the work was the lawyers working out the exact wording to implement various if-then-else clauses that the seller and buyer had agreed upon in principle.

    I think this strikes at why blacks aren’t successful at either law or computer programming. Thinking in an “if-then” manner requires understanding the future impact of choices. Blacks are notoriously bad at this kind of thinking. “If I do A, then B C D E happens, resulting in F.” If you start that statement with, say, “If I hand out cash to all my homies, then…. I end up a dead-broke former rap star / athlete / lottery winner.” Blacks don’t see it coming.

    This, of course, is so common among blacks that it’s a cliche. But it is precisely that cognitive lack that means they can’t work their way through a multi-step legal problem. Even they are otherwise glib in the moment.

I’d bring up a point, backed up with facts and they’d just block me.

    "Washington D.C., March 14, 2018 —
    The Securities and Exchange Commission today charged Silicon Valley-based private company Theranos Inc., its founder and CEO Elizabeth Holmes, and its former President Ramesh “Sunny” Balwani with raising more than $700 million from investors through an elaborate, years-long fraud in which they exaggerated or made false statements about the company’s technology, business, and financial performance. Theranos and Holmes have agreed to resolve the charges against them. Importantly, in addition to a penalty, Holmes has agreed to give up majority voting control over the company, as well as to a reduction of her equity which, combined with shares she previously returned, materially reduces her equity stake.

    The complaints allege that Theranos, Holmes, and Balwani made numerous false and misleading statements in investor presentations, product demonstrations, and media articles by which they deceived investors into believing that its key product – a portable blood analyzer – could conduct comprehensive blood tests from finger drops of blood, revolutionizing the blood testing industry. In truth, according to the SEC’s complaint, Theranos’ proprietary analyzer could complete only a small number of tests, and the company conducted the vast majority of patient tests on modified and industry-standard commercial analyzers manufactured by others."

    I have no idea what this is about.


    An email sent to MOCA trustees Monday afternoon and obtained by The Times announced that Molesworth "is stepping down" from the high-profile post, among the most coveted of its kind nationally, effective immediately. The implication was that Molesworth had resigned.

    "No," artist and board member Catherine Opie said by phone when asked about the email wording. "He fired her."

    Opie said she called Vergne after receiving the surprise message and was told that Molesworth had not written a letter of resignation but was terminated for "undermining the museum." Opie was nonplussed.
     

    Oh. Diversity and inclusion?

    Last month the museum was embarrassed by the mishandling of plans for the 2018 MOCA gala honoring one of its artist board members, Mark Grotjahn. After the event was announced, Grotjahn withdrew his acceptance of the honor, citing rumblings of constituent concern about a lack of diversity among the museum's three previous gala honorees, all of whom have been straight, white men.

    The gala was quietly shelved on Friday, according to a museum insider not authorized to discuss the matter, with $1.4 million in pledges set to be returned to donors. The dust-up reflected a similar distinction between Vergne's high-profile exhibitions for two white male artists and Molesworth's for an African American male artist and a Latin American female artist.

    There is nothing wrong with accepting things "on faith." Especially when there is a track record. Pat Buchanan --over the weekend--couldn't accept that the Russians were part of the murder-by-poison plot in England. Pat's reasoning (McLaughlin Group) was 'that Putin has too much to lose and the hit seems relatively unimportant.'

    So because this was a stupid act by a smart Putin, we shouldn't believe what our eyes tell us? Because we have no eye witnesses -yet- maybe it never happened the way the Brits tell us? I hope all involved pull through especially Mr. Skripal's daughter.

    The simplest explanation isn't always true but most of the time it is. The Russians poison people and do other really bad stuff like tossing bodies off buildings and the like. I'd bet on them being guilty (of serial poisoning) even if I don't necessarily have blind faith in the people telling me so.

    So if Mayer --I've read two of her books-- wants to tell me that the Russians have Kompromat on Trump I think I'd be willing to listen (haven't seen it yet). Hopefully evidence --should it exist-- will be forthcoming. I think Trump is fully capable of participating in questionable activity and Russians have been fully functional in providing dalliances of all sorts (past/present) from which he can dabble.

Except for the fact that any given moment of every single day you can find a black, a cucked white, or a Jew talking about the plight of blacks and the racism of whites on television or in major publications. Always, every day. It’s a constant message, but it’s not the only message, and maybe that’s what “silencing” means.

    Speaking of “silencing,” minor factoid: the other day I’m on a corporate conference call. And before the call starts, instead of hold music they play little news snippets.

    Finally, she is yet another female who fits Sailer’s Law of Female Journalism:

    Probably, her parents and siblings constantly told her to STFU when she was a kid, and it's still bothering her.

    That's a curious difference between subcontinental Indians and East Asians. The ethnicities we are told, which will more or less own the coming century.

    East Asians, in general, are a people very heavily burdened by the concept of 'shame'.

    Subcontinental Indians, however, rather like subsaharan blacks, seem to be a people free of feelings of shame, at least when acts of egregious duplicity and criminality against 'whitey' are involved.

    East Asians, in general, are a people very heavily burdened by the concept of ‘shame’.

    Indeed. A Chinese person will feel great shame if they get caught when they are cheating you. On the other hand, if they’re not caught, hey, no problem!

    That's the difference between a shame culture (East Asian) and a guilt culture (American/European). It is one of the reasons corruption is higher in China than it is in the United States.

  • the broader lack of representation across the film industry.

    I love how it’s always a “lack of representation.” It’s never a lack of talent, ability, gumption, drive or any of the other traits that white people have to have in spades to make it in an intensely competitive industry.

  • Five years ago, the hipster-Marxist magazine n+1 published a lengthy editorial, White Indians [Spring 2013] complaining that Indians—i.e. Asians from the subcontinent of India—were doing too well. They were making money, staying out of trouble, attending colleges, and generally integrating. Some of them—Bobby Jindal and Nikki Haley—were even becoming Republicans! The n+1 Editors were not...
  • This piece is a great example of Peterike’s Law in action. The Law states: Asian immigration to America will ultimately be far more damaging than Hispanic immigration, and Hispanics ain’t no picnic.

    Indians are corrupt as the day is long, and may or may not be rapey, but they sure as hell are back-stabby. They must laugh their assess off over how easy it is to gull America. At the trashier end it’s Medicaid schemes and running Dr. Feelgood pill mills dishing out opioids. At the high end, it’s major corporate CEOs.

    Indians are definitely threats to Jewish hegemony, but as we’ve seen, they are more likely to side with the Jewish project of nation wrecking, because they are gaining immensely from it right now. And there’s room for a lot of new billionaires in America. Plenty more white wealth to skim and concentrate, so it’ll all be good for a while between our current overclass and our up-and-coming Asian overclass. At some point, there may be a falling out. But not for a good long while yet.

    I wonder if we’ll see more assortive mating between Indians and Jews? I would guess more Indian man/Jewish woman pairings, given how resolutely unattractive so many Indian women are. And Jewish men really do seem to have the Yellow Fever when it comes to marrying Asians.

    The real fun will be as America really starts to decline and there’s no more blood to suck out, and Jews start packing off for the East. That’s a lot easier to do with your Chinese wife or Indian husband in tow.

  • From the Washington Post: Do you ever get the impression from reading the Washington Post that its owner Jeff Bezos's sympathies lie more with owners than with workers?

    Good point. The Walton family comes in for intense media scrutiny. Bernie Sanders rips on them during campaign speeches. Yet they are engaged in philanthropy and arts. I know for a fact one Walton is behind the charter school movement in Arkansas. They own sport teams and other civic functions.

    Bezos refuses to sign on to Gates billionaire giving pledge, ok whatever but he also is not involved much in philanthropy. His workers are treated horribly. WaPo workers get a 1% match on their 401ks. He and his wife recently donated $30 million to DREAMers so people in philanthropy circles are hoping this is the beginning of the Bezos giving money away. Wouldn’t bet on it.

    Bezos refuses to sign on to Gates billionaire giving pledge,

    Well that’s probably a good thing, seeing how much of what the Gates Foundation spends money on is positively harmful. And the same can be said for nearly all large philanthropies. These are the engines of SJW activism. If Bezos is too much of a megalomaniac to want to feed coal into those engines, we’re all better off.

    Very much agree. They can also bypass the Estate tax with these sham foundations. Much tax abuse goes on within these foundations.

    There's an Amazon distribution center near where I live- what people who work there tell me about the conditions there sounds surreal. They literally have monitors on you to see how much time you're standing still.

    There’s an Amazon distribution center near where I live- what people who work there tell me about the conditions there sounds surreal. They literally have monitors on you to see how much time you’re standing still.

    This is the case with pretty much every retail, warehouse, or food service job today. Workers are monitored constantly for productivity. Literally every second of their time on the clock must be categorized under some job-related function. Whether it’s the headsets worn by BestBuy employees, the scanners used by USPS mail carriers, or the cyborg gloves on the hands of McLane order-pickers, these workers are being tracked, controlled, and directed at all times.

    It seems like every major company in the country implemented something like this at more or less the same time. It appears to have been inspired by a 6-sigma passion for efficiency along with a vague notion that “technology” should be used to improve the workplace. The terabytes of data gathered by these tracking devices are fed to consulting companies who analyze it and return with recommendations about how employees can avoid “time-wasting practices.” It has turned the workplace into a veritable panopticon.

    These protocols are all around you and you probably don’t even know about them. Just to take one example, Kroger grocery stores used to use a system called “Queue-Vision,” which was an entire network of thermal cameras placed in the ceiling throughout the store. The purpose of this apparatus was to sense how many customers were moving towards the front end and to forecast how many registers would need to be open in order to keep wait times in line below a certain maximum. All this just to inform the head clerk to open another register, as if an experienced clerk with common sense weren’t capable of doing that on their own. Actually, this particular program was such a bust that Kroger abandoned it years ago.

    Such schemes are the living definition of being penny-wise and pound-foolish. When you add up all the money spent on the hardware, the software, the data processing, the consulting, not to mention the multiple new layers of middle and upper management required to implement the systems, it hardly seems worth it when you consider that, at best, it was all designed just to shave a few seconds off the clock of a person making $10 per hour; and in practice, it doesn’t even do that. I have never known any of this to make a workplace more efficient, but it certainly has contributed to making everybody miserable. And by the way, the same futility of diminishing returns will apply in spades to anyone who wishes to jump on the current bandwagon of “automation.”

    I have written extensively about this subject before and I’m not really in the mood right now to delve into the details of it; but it is something that remains near and dear to my heart, as I have had to deal with this garbage for many years in my professional life, and I think people should be made aware of it.
