    • What students really need is the license, and opportunity, to learn in their own unique way.
    • Our education system ought to adapt to students. Instead, we force students to adapt to the system

  • Recession time bomb ticking faster, louder - MarketWatch about 17 hours ago
    • The Fed and central banks worldwide have taken on all this leverage that was out there and put it on their balance sheets,” giving trillions to the top 1%, the world’s 1,826 billionaires, accelerating the inequality gap and fueling a new people’s revolution.
    • tenuous global anarchy of 1,826 billionaires, 67 of whom own half the assets of the entire world
  • Countdown to the stock-market Crash of 2016 is ticking louder - MarketWatch about 17 hours ago
    • Our Congressional luddites are not only in denial of global-warming science, like Greenspan they are in gross denial of the fact that their capitalist ideology is self-destructing the American economy, our democratic values and their precious capitalism.
    • Truth is, they all know these solutions. But there’s no political compromising, no cooperation, no working together for a common good ... which is why the Fed and fiscal bubbles will just keep blowing bigger and bigger till they explode ... as predicted around the 2016 elections. Pope Francis’ “Moral Imperatives” just won’t be enough to win over Exxon Mobil, the Kochs nor the senators from the coal mining State of Kentucky, and they control the vote.
    • Maybe the coming revolution of the masses will get their attention.

  • Why Aren’t Today’s Billionaires Investing in Higher Education Innovation? | EdSurge News on Jun 28, 15
    • There is an interesting precedent: The Olin Foundation was one of the largest of its day and donated hundreds of millions building new engineering buildings on existing university campuses. In the late 1990s, Olin trustees threw out the playbook. They endowed Olin College with a $450 million gift that enabled the college to take risks. No tenure, few lectures, and a revolutionary concept that taught future engineers how to learn by doing. Within a generation, Olin has become a top 10 engineering college that serves as a model for other engineering programs.
  • Cocktail of chemicals may trigger cancer | KurzweilAI on Jun 28, 15
    • “Since so many chemicals that are unavoidable in the environment can produce low dose effects that are directly related to carcinogenesis, the way we’ve been testing chemicals (one at a time) is really quite out of date.  Every day we are exposed to an environmental ‘chemical soup’, so we need testing that evaluates the effects of our ongoing exposure to these chemical mixtures.”
