ha ha ha, it's ok, i perfectly understand the perception that we are a diploma mill. i can tell you i have first hand knowledge though that we have been holding our students to academic policies more strictly lately as i deal with their appeals for financial aid reinstatment daily :)

i work for apollo group, the company that owns university of phoenix, but i mainly service UPX. it has been around since the mid/late seventies. we are fully accredited & a member of the HLC. we offer both online and ground classes, both here and abroad. apollo group is a fortune 1000 company & our founder and his son are the richest people in the state (john sperling). there are other subsidaries that are education related, including online high schools both here & in mexico, professional development schools and accoutning colleges.

university of phoenix is the number 1 private education provider in the country. we mainly specialize in business & technology degrees, but also offer education, counseling, nursing (work experience required), criminal justice (i believe work experince is required at the master's level) and recently psychology. we are looking to branch out even more, but i'm not sure if that's confidential so i won't say to what degree programs. we also offer a wide range of certificate programs. we offer everything from an associates to a doctorate.

the coursework is a lot more rigirous than people think. not to say we're harvard or anything, but we're a lot more than simply a "diploma mill". that being said, we generally cater to working adults who need that piece of paper to advance further in their careers. our instructors are generally required to have experince in the field in which we work. this one of the things i love about the school; courses are more like real life business than the imaginary land of academia where you generally have instructors who haven't worked a real job in 20 years and enjoy getting in 2 hour semantics debates. our instructors are generally out there working, just like you and therefore can provide you with valuable experience.

we started out as a school where you HAD to be over 23 and HAD to have a current job in order to attend, but we've lifted a lot of those requirements. most of our ground classes are at night and online is 24 hours a day and is discussion based. university of phoenix is also known for learning teams, which some people hate (like me, i go to another subsidary for my education for this reason) and some people love. learning teams are designed to be like your real life work team where you work together on your final projects. there's a lot of paper writing & presentations. we try to offer most of our books online too instead of paper books.

so that's UPX. i work in financial aid policy which is a nightmare to manage in some respects based on our non-traditional learning format. we offer courses pretty much every week of the year and you don't really take breaks. the courses are 5 weeks long and you generally take one at a time, so that can make it difficult to manage from a policy perspective since most of the federal regulations are geared towards semester based schools. but that's also what makes it fun.

That's interesting. Thanks for the detailed response. It never occurred to me that it might be a legit university with a physical campus. Although I'm still dubious of the idea of a for-profit institution of higher education. From an outsider's perspective, it seems like it might create some fundamental issues, if profit is the number one goal above education of students.

This is very good. The other thing I was going to say in response is that the school's marketing team needs to be kicked to the curb if it is inaccurately putting the perception out there that University of Phoenix is a diploma mill.

You can also empty out a very mild tea bag and fill it up with coffee and then use the string to tie off the top, but I wouldn't ever do it with something that wasn't complementary to the coffee. Vanilla is acceptable, but I don't have any vanilla tea at the moment and it's a risky practice with most flavors.

Yep. This goes against a core value of mine but I was just thinking. If we had universal healthcare and it was mandatory for everyone (subsidized for the poor of course), why couldn’t we do away with the law or “value” that anyone who walks into a hospital or emergency room has to be admitted. I know this brings up the illegal immigrant issue but if you want care, get legal, get a green card, or any other ideas gang for that 10 million or so? There would also be cases of people on vacation from other countries here that get sick and a host of other issues, but essentially if everyone has healthcare, pull out your damn policy and give the info to the hospital and part of this problem is solved.

Of course not Amy, they should get legal but that is a different issue then this. That is why I asked for any ideas. To be blunt which always gets me into trouble: I am more worried about Americans that are going to die because of this health mess then anyone from any other country in the world. Maybe treat anyone under 16 or so but then we still have the same problem. Do you think everyone should have car insurance to protect each other or only people who want it and can afford it? In Colorado car insurance is mandatory so is a car more valuable or a bigger issue then someone who needs health care? Illegal or not, if you get caught driving without car insurance you are going to get busted at some point (like when you want a new plates). There is no big uproar on “Hey if I don’t want car insurance, that should be up to me and not the government. So what if I crash into you, I know it is never going to happen just like (sic) I know I will never need a doctor so I am not getting health insurance… cr****

Amy, just so you know my perspective on healthcare. At my work I have Kaiser and I have had it for over 25 years. Most of my co-pays are $10 with the biggest being $300 for any operation I have to have no matter what the cost. I take 3 prescriptions a day with cost me $12 a month total. My monthly premium is $000000, yep that is zero. I can’t think of a thing they are considering that will do anything to help me, and I am guessing this will cost me.

I do have a good plan I admit. Do I feel guilty that I have it? No and why? I get paid less then my counterparts in the private industry so it is a benefit we offer that some companies don’t offer. My ex has even a better plan, but then she works at Kaiser. As a side note, in the last 5 years I think I have been to the doctor about 5 times.

He asked me for some money for food, and I offered to give him some of the food in my trunk that I had just bought at the 99Cents store, since that was about all I could afford. He refused on the grounds that he really wanted some McDonald's.

I felt this story was just swept under the rug and should have been given more attention..

Case of $134-billion T-bond bust fuels conspiracy theories
June 17, 2009 | 9:22 pm

For your entertainment, Bloomberg News columnist William Pesek lets his imagination run wild about the strange case of two Japanese men who were allegedly trying to smuggle $134 billion in U.S. Treasury bonds into Switzerland last week:

Two Japanese men are detained in Italy after allegedly attempting to take $134 billion worth of U.S. bonds over the border into Switzerland. Details are maddeningly sketchy, so naturally the global rumor mill is kicking into high gear.

Are these would-be smugglers agents of Kim Jong Il stashing North Korea’s cash in a Swiss vault? Bagmen for Nigerian Internet scammers? Was the money meant for terrorists looking to buy nuclear warheads? Is Japan dumping its dollars secretly? Are the bonds real or counterfeit?

The case has received little play in mainstream media, which Pesek presumes is because it’s so surreal. And, probably, because the assumption is that the bonds are phony. But the Italian authorities seem to have released few details so far.

I think the original story was carried by a service called AsiaNews, which I’ve never heard of. Go here for the original and here for the service’s follow-up. The Seeking Alpha website has a story here. Glenn Beck on Fox News also has picked up on this.

As you’re reading, keep in mind that actual facts on the story are in short supply.

Still, even assuming this is just a counterfeiting case, the total involved (if it’s accurate) is mind-boggling. This is manna from heaven for conspiracy theorists.

Note, though, that Bloomberg goes a little over the top with the headline on Pesek's column, suggesting that "Suitcase With $134 Billion Puts Dollar on Edge." The dollar may have plenty of things weighing on it lately, but this probably isn’t one of them.

TomAz
08-28-2009, 02:03 PM
On principle, I do. I think it is no coincidence that the most litigious society in the world also has the most expensive healthcare. It's not just the cost of litigation and resultant cost of malpractice insurance.. it's how it causes doctors to practice medicine differently. Order a whole batch of tests, even though he/she knows they are unlikely to show anything, because failure to order the batch of tests could be held against him/her in a malpractice suit. It's not rational, it's defensive.

Practically, though, maybe it's best they save it for later. Howard Dean says the only reason tort reform isn't in the healthcare reform bills is because reform is pissing off enough people as it is and that adding the trial lawyers to that list would just make it that much harder to pass anything. I can see the wisdom in that.

Agreed. It's amazing how easily people spit out the talking points without taking a moment to see if they have any merit.

There is a free buffet dinner. It has a lot of good things on it that everyone likes. Steaks, shrimp, vegetables, salad bar. It is first rate and quite good.

85% of Utopians can eat at this free buffet dinner. 15% are not allowed.

The King of Utopia decides this is wrong, and wants to get all 100% to the dinner. He realizes this will cost money -- the buffet isn't 'really' free, after all, it's paid for in the form of lower wages and taxes -- but the King does not want to just let the people in and let the next King figure out how to pay for it (a break in precedent from his predecessors).

So the King gets a bunch of smart people together and they study the thing and they realize some Utopians have been gorging themselves at the buffet. So they come up with a plan: people can still eat at the buffet -- but the new policy will be, if you come back for seconds, you can, but you have to pay for part of the cost of that second serving. The cost will be subsidized - you're not paying 100% of the cost -- but Utopians wanting a second trip to the shellfish platter or salad bar will have to pony up a bit of Utopian cash. The King's experts figure out that if they do this, they will save more than enough money to fund the buffet costs for the other 15%.

After the plan is announced, there is a revolution, the King is captured and ultimately beheaded. His crime? Starving the masses.

Oh no I think I agree to most of what you said Tom. The thing that gets me most about throwing in tort reform is if you listen to the left, they say insurance and trials account for between 1/2 and 1 percent of the cost for a doctor. Even the right puts it at between 1 and 2 percent usually. Now if the doctor is making 10 million a year, yea that is between 100k to 200k. Tuff fucking luck to have to pay 100k for insurance on 10 million. It is called the cost of business. I need to find this article I read just today and it talks about how the lawsuits against the doctors have dramatically dropped in the last 10-20 years. Pussys, it’s all a straw doggie. cr****

I went to the doctor today because I sort of messed up my back while lifting some heavy boxes last week. I couldn't get an appointment with my normal doctor because it was such short notice, so I just took the first available appointment, which happened to be with a new doctor that I had not seen before.

After arriving at my appointment and sitting in the exam room for a few minutes, the new doctor came in and I was PSYCHED because he was surprisingly young and seriously gorgeous. I was even more excited when he started engaging me by talking about what a good choice of magazine reading I had brought with me (The Economist) and how he had especially enjoyed an article from a couple weeks ago.

We chatted about my work, and about my background in art. He asked me what my favorite period of art is, and so I mentioned that I had studied eighteenth century French art in school. He was super excited about this, and mentioned that during a recent trip to Italy he had fallen in love with this eighteenth century painter, Cortes, a Spaniard who worked in France. I said that I had never heard of the painter, but that I was curious. He said that he would love to show me the work, and then he got all excited when he had the idea that he could go back to his office and print out an image to show me. So after handing me a script for large amounts of pain medication, he came back into the room with a print out of a painting by Cortes, his favorite eighteenth-century painter:

Give him a bit of slack Courtney. Cortes was born in the 1800’s which I don’t know if he was born then would you would say he was a 19th century painter or do you start from when he started painting. He then might be considered a 19th century painter so just a century off lol. In your field which do you usually use? When a person is born or when they start their art? The painter starting painting in late 1800's. Cortes of course kept painting so the painting you posted is of course some later work. Maybe your new friend meant 1800's and not 18th century? Cr**

He said this is also causing a 40 percent unemployment rate. He leaves out about half of them or more are migrant workers which he wants to kick out of the US. My point here though is: If the federal government stayed out of this issue then the Colorado residents would build a giant dam, we would control and have all the water coming from the rocky mountains and the Colorado river. Then Las Vegas, Phoenix (?), and Southern California would last about 3 months without water and everyone who stayed there would fucking die. Fucking Feds huh? …. Cr****

The Colorado River is managed and operated under numerous compacts, federal laws, court decisions and decrees, contracts, and regulatory guidelines collectively known as the "Law of the River."

Southern California currently has enough stored water to last up to two years (This is from 2003 and it is much worse now)

Roughly 30 million people — including many in Arizona and Southern California — depend on the Colorado River for drinking and irrigation water. (One article said 60 percent of So Cal and one said 40 percent of So Cal water.

"Trigger" legislation is fairly infamous as a method of conducting a gigantic, transparent legislative whiff to keep the status quo while still being able to send letters back home saying that you've done a nebulous "something" that will really, for sure this time, do something supposedly substantive in the future.

How We Know Where Our Lost Keys Are
In feature-based attention, neurons form the search patterns we use to find familiar objects in unexplored places
By Nikhil Swaminathan

When on a hunt for Waldo, that dastardly master of cryptic coloration, you probably try to zero in on the color red, hoping to catch the top of his candy cane–colored hat, or perhaps his distinctive black-rimmed glasses. Similar principles are helpful when trying to find apples in a supermarket or lost keys in our house.
Two new studies appearing in this week's issue of Neuron elucidate the neural mechanisms behind feature-based attention—essentially, the tuning of your visual processing system to specific colors, shapes or motions as a way of formulating an awareness of a scene. The findings could one day be used to better diagnose and treat disorders such as attention deficit / hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and dyslexia.

"The idea is that this is the mechanism that allows you to find things when you know what they are but you don't know where they are," says John Serences, a cognitive scientist at the University of California, Irvine, and co-author of one of the new reports.

He and Geoffrey Boynton, a system neurobiologist at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in La Jolla, Calif., had 10 subjects perform a visual attention task as their brains were scanned via functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). During the test, participants faced a screen, the bottom half of which was empty, while the top half showed two clusters of dots stacked one above the other. Each cluster contained a layer of dots that moved upward and to the left superimposed on a second set of dots that moved upward and to the right.

Neuroscientists established in previous work on spatial attention that varying groups of neurons in the visual cortex process different sections of the visual field. A subset of neurons will fire—that is, send electrical signals that convey information—when a person focuses their attention on the upper half of a scene, whereas a different subgroup activates when attention is transferred to the lower half.

From the fMRI data, the researchers could see that, as they had expected, different subpopulations of neurons in the brain were also activated when the subjects were asked to concentrate on stimuli moving up and left versus up and right. The surprise came when they noticed that a pattern of activity among the neurons that process the lower half of the visual field echoed the behavior of the cells for the field's upper half.

"While [the subjects are] attending to a particular direction of motion, the part of the brain that processes that direction of motion becomes more sensitized to detect that … motion," Serences says. "The really new thing is the fact that this sensitization spreads across the entire visual field." This indicates that while you are consciously tuning for a particular shape or color—say, your lost keys—in one part of your visual field, you may be subconsciously alerting the entire visual system to that trait, enabling a more efficient search.

In complementary work, Taosheng Liu, a research scientist in New York University's Department of Psychology and at its Center for Neuroscience, put eight subjects through a similar fMRI task. In Liu's experiment, participants viewed a composite image of two sets of superimposed bars. (One set of bars slanted 20 degrees clockwise from the vertical; the other, 20 degrees counterclockwise.) When the image appeared in front of the volunteers, they were told to focus on either set of skewed bars. The results from the subjects' fMRI scans indicated that neurons in the visual cortex attuned to shapes slanting clockwise would fire if the subjects were told to focus on the corresponding bars, and vice versa.

After focusing on a particular group of bars for a short time, the signal from the associated neurons would begin to quiet—indicating an adaptation to the stimulus. Then the researchers would switch the image to a picture containing only one of the two sets of bars.

According to Liu, if the new image was in the same orientation as the bars the subjects had focused on, the already adapted neurons would be less sensitive to the change and show a "relaxed response." If, however, the scientists showed a picture of the opposite orientation, a different subpopulation of neurons would respond with a flurry of activity. "The cool part," Liu says, "is the clockwise and counterclockwise neurons are all intermingled in the same part of the brain," the primary visual cortex.

"We're starting to understand how you can efficiently find things that you're looking for," Serences says. In addition, he adds, the research is part of "figuring out very mechanistic descriptions of how attention works," which can be used in the future "to develop better tools and better objective measures for diagnosing disorders like ADD and dyslexia."

not to mention my mom discovered I'm going to ATP and she's VERY VERY VERY mad

I don't follow...why would she be mad?

i lost my keys

my car keys
my house keys
my guitar case keys
my laptop lock keys
my bike lock key
my radio station key
all my keys

i cleaned my entire house---they're not here. i think i might have quickly taken them outside and left them, letting some sketchball of the neighborhood to take them. great.

thats why i keep my separate. ive never lost them all at once.
