Most recents (16)

As many as 3-5% of admitted students at these elite Universities were under-qualified and over-privileged, given spots to leverage fundraising.

Lots of these schools barely have 5% Black students and TT faculty. #AcademicChatter #highereducation #highered
The other 15 universities in the lawsuit are @Brown, Cal Tech, Chicago, Columbia, Cornell, #Dartmouth, Emory, Georgetown, #MIT, #Northwestern, Notre Dame, Penn, Rice, Vanderbilt and #Yale.

Perhaps economically challenged superstar students will take their talents elsewhere.
I have *never* believed the racial #AffirmativeAction hype they tried to sell—that these alumni admits and full pay, overprivileged AA kids were smarter than we were. Please. Years of teaching affirm that under-resourced students can be so much smarter and more interesting too.

THREAD: This week I am in @reason Magazine with a feature on ‘The Second Great Age of Political Correctness.’ By the mid-90s “PC” had become a joke, derided across the political spectrum See: the (not good) Jeremy Piven movie PCU. 1/14

reason.com/2021/12/13/the…
Many students stopped calling it “PC,” but the trend it described didn’t disappear, it just went off the public radar in the “ignored years” of campus #freespeech. During that time problems persisted & got worse. 2/14
Stanford’s infamous speech code banning insults & stigmatization was struck down in court in 1995, one of a half dozen losses for speech codes, but they STILL proliferated. By 2009 74% of universities had extremely restrictive speech codes. 3/14

We issued the following statement this a.m. on the @UHC-@zackcooperYale-@Yale #surprisemedicalbill "research" scandal.

To ensure that forthcoming #NoSurprisesAct regs are implemented fairly and to protect #patients nationwide, we will...
...continue to shine a bright light on this trickery.

According to our President Christopher Sheeron, "We have long believed that this #Yale study, and several others that have shaped this debate over the past several years, was blatantly concocted out of the public eye by...
...insurers. Rose Adams' unveiling of this nasty truth is welcomed enthusiastically by #patients, #hospitals, #physicians, and many others who are sick of the #health #insurance industry's dirty tricks.

1/🧵 Why have #COVID19 hospital admissions skyrocketed? 🗣
 
The virus’s spike protein acts like VELCRO in our airway. #DeltaVariant has modified the #SpikeProtein to make it SUPER-VELCRO. When exposed, you’re way more apt to get infected.
 
#Yale Press: bit.ly/3lKvJqs
2/ “In a completely unmitigated environment—where no one is vaccinated or wearing masks—the average person infected with original coronavirus will infect 2.5 others. In the same environment, #Delta infects >4 other people & grows more quickly.”
3/ Additionally, once the infection takes root in you (most often a person NOT #vaccinated), it has modified itself to increase viral shedding 1000X (ie, 1,000 virions for every 1 that was shed with original SARS-CoV-2.

Interview du prof @VirusesImmunity #Akiko #Iwasaki #yale
Question : si le virus échappait à l’immunité du vaccin, serait il nécessaire de repasser par toute une phase d’approbation pour refaire un nouveau #vaccin #ARNm
Pr AI : je ne suis pas certaine qu’il fasse refaire toute l’homologation, je pense qu’il suffit de remplacer la séquence à ARN et de relancer la production de vaccin. La nouvelle version devra peut-être être testée sur un petit groupe de personnes mais je
ne suis pas certaine. Chaque nouveau vaccin devra être probablement approuvé par des autorités réglementaires.

tw: child abuse, spiders

#Yale just did a study, passed by their ethics committee, which literally measured 'distress' in autistic children by frightening them with Halloween masks, large mechanical spiders, and strangers encroaching in their personal space #AttendLessFearMore
Not only this, but they then tried to defend it when the autistic community expressed outrage whilst blocking the Twitter user who leaked the paper, followed by them removing the paper from the link so that people can no longer see for themselves what they did #AttendLessFearMore
A single traumatic moment in childhood can have a lasting effect and is often the basis of phobias. This is especially true for autistic people. The researchers who claimed to be concerned about anxiety in autistic people have potentially created that anxiety #AttendMoreFearLess

Whenever I see #Antifa trending (especially when driven by inauthentic troll network activity), I’m reminded again of how #fascism operates. It requires the conjuring of both enemies & scapegoats. It’s worth revisiting different works on fascism. Like #Yale prof @jasonintrator.
(Full interview here: vox.com/2018/9/19/1784…).
Trump & #GOP use of manufactured enemies, is such a thoroughly predictable aspect of practicing #fascism, that it’s almost cartoon-like at this point. Something cult members fall for, while everyone else stares in disbelief.
Umberto Eco in his famous 1995 essay, “Ur-Fascism”, (web.archive.org/web/2017013115…)
talks about how social & economic frustration makes fertile ground for fascist movements & susceptibility to fascist rhetoric & techniques. #Election2020

#Hydroxychloroquine + #azithromycine : "Ces médicaments doivent être largement disponibles et promus immédiatement pour que les médecins puissent les prescrire précocement"

Starting a series on clinical Pearls I am gathering in #COVID19 patients based on experiences of many experts

Will add as we go along

Feel free to add your own observations/experiences

#covidclinicalpearls /1
Anosmia is likely the most specific #COVID19 related symptom
30% of patients have anosmia as their 1st symptom
#covidclinicalpearls /2
Around 90% of patients have fever.
50% maybe afebrile at the time of presentation
Fever tends to be very resistant to routine measures in hospitalized patients
There is no consensus that NSAIDs are to be avoided in #COVID2019 patients

reorganizing the #tamu #cognizant irony (see fig.1) posted yesterday night for better readability, American ppl deserve to know what the outsourcing companies are doing to their jobs before #s386 is sneaked in by @SenMikeLee . #s386 is SIMPLY UNAMERICAN! #nos386 #reliefact
Now all #s386 supporters who refuse public hearing, give a proper reason why #cognizant is preferring ppl from 1000 ranked oversea schools over US top engr universities like #tamu. If it happens for #tamu, it can happen to #harvard #mit #yale once #s386 passed. #NoS386!!!
For short, outsourcing companies would rather hire anyone than smart native American grads! And senate is acting as a rubber stamped for their interests? #s386 MUST BE STOPPED!!!#NoS386 @SenatorDurbin @SenHawleyPress @SenatorRounds @MarshaBlackburn @SenGillibrand @ChuckGrassley

Anteayer Trump tuiteaba que Google manipuló de 2,6 millones a 16 millones de votos a favor de Hillary Clinton en las elecciones de 2016.
[HILO]
Hillary Clinton respondió ayer, afirmando que el estudio mencionado estaba desacreditado y que estaba basado en 21 votantes indecisos. twitter.com/HillaryClinton
El autor del estudio, el psicólogo Robert Epstein, anunció también ayer que respondería en detalle, pero adelantó que Clinton mentía, y confirmaba otro dato que daba Trump al reconocerse partidario de Clinton.

Why did IVY admit most of younger generation of regimes around the world?

The most ridiculous thing is that they were all rewarded with full scholarship when the worthy Americans had no money to attend IVY.

杨洁篪女儿杨家乐念耶鲁免费😁😁

According to the exposé of Guo WenGui on April 13,2018

Yang JiChi loves popping cherries! He is a scum of the radical cadre and a possible pedophile. CCP is a gang of #pedophiles.
