Re: The end of public education in Chicago

There was nothing wrt blacks in America we needed to fix in the 60s?

Re: Reestablishing the Middle Class

I am not aware of a situation where discrimination has remained widespread for a prolonged period without laws either mandating it or protecting discriminators from non-discriminator competition. Which indicates that while Akerlof's model may be [more]

Re: Excel 2010 Formula Question

I now realize that the Subtotal Rows aren't doing what they should be either!!!

Re: Excel 2010 Formula Question

I'm assuming that I need to do a SUMPRODUCT to do this, but I've never figured out how to do the array calculations... they just don't make sense to me.

I have Data in several columns (E8 through E50) for example.

Re: MIT: economist Piketty on inequay

I fail to see why this is a mystery to anyone. The sales pitch for Supply Side Economics was "if enough money is concentrated into a few hands, maybe you can get a job".

There is a non-zero chance that the folks at the Large Hadron Collider could smash the wrong stuff together and create a black hole that would destroy the earth. Do you think that's something people have to become aware of because their lives may [more]

Re: AI- The Final Invention

There's even an argument that it would be immoral: if greater intelligence is what makes humans more deserving of life than, say, a cockroach, then don't superhuman AIs deserve life more than we do?

There is no state mandate to 'integrate it' across 'all disciplines'.

Re: Students seek to block Moochelle

Basically, she doesn't have much of a record (Senator, Secretary of State) of accomplishment on which to proudly run.

Re: November 4 can't come soon enough
